Understand what every developer should know about performance when building Windows Store apps. Not designed as a comprehensive reference, this book instead zeroes in on the essentials of planning for great performance and provides a solid starting point for building fast apps.

This concise, performance-focused guide:

  • Provides an introduction to the Windows platform from a performance point of view
  • Describes how to set performance goals, establish tests to track performance, and covers tools to instrument code and analyze performance
  • Explains why common techniques such as micro benchmarks and ad hoc testing often fall short in verifying performance
  • Focuses on managed C#/XAML apps
  • Although tools and techniques also apply to Visual Basic/XAML apps, all code examples use C#
  • HTML5/JavaScript and C++/XAML are not covered
