Building the Developer.Com Windows 8 App

Chris Bennett talks about building the Developer.com Windows 8 App--including sharing the code!

Windows 8 launched into the retail channel today along with a statement from Microsoft that there are more applications available today for Windows 8 then there was for other platforms when they launched. To help support this claim, Chris Bennett has built a Windows Store Application that should be available within a few days.
