Already comfortable with JavaScript and HTML? Microsoft has just empowered you to build breakthrough apps for Windows 8. It's a remarkable opportunity--and best-selling Microsoft web development author Stephen Walther will show you how to take full advantage of it. Offering the same deep insight and practical code that has made his ASP.NET Unleashed the #1 ASP.NET book of all time, Walther covers everything you need to build, test, and distribute outstanding Windows 8 software with JavaScript and HTML5. Walther clearly demonstrates the unique advantages Windows 8 offers to web developers. He guides you through using Microsoft's new WinJS library to develop apps for Microsoft's brand-new version of Windows--you learn how to use JavaScript templates, controls, and data binding. You'll find in-depth coverage of everything from displaying data with a ListView control to supporting SkyDrive cloud storage, creating games to using IndexedDB and HTML5 forms.
