Lessons learned from my first Windows 8 Metro development project

Yesterday I talked at NNUG Oslo about my experiences and lessons learned developing my first Windows 8 application Ticki. Coming from a .NET WinForms world, the things that took the most time getting a grip on was the new pattern for asynchronous programming using async await and the Task Asynchronous Pattern. An other challenge for me was doing MVVM right. I knew the gist of the pattern, but applying it correctly in a Windows 8 context took some learning.

As promised, I leave you here with a link to the slides and also a summary of the resources I link to from that presentation:


On asynchronous programming

On MVVM and Databinding

Creating user controls and getting to know the UI framework

And finally, the slides:
