Fluent Windows 8.1 App Development

Fluent Windows 8.1 App Development

Based on the principles of cognitive science and instructional design, Fluent Windows 8.1 App Development, part of the Fluent Learning series, is a true tutorial that will help you build effective working models for understanding a large and complex subject: developing XAML applications for Windows 8.1. Most introductory books just talk at you and give you "exercises" that have more to do with taking dictation than actually learning. Fluent Windows 8.1 App Development, is different. It guides you through learning the way your mind likes to learn: by solving puzzles, making connections, and building genuine understanding instead of just memorizing random facts.
