Building Windows 8 Modern UI-styled applications presents a whole new arena for building applications. However, patterns that have evolved for building clients with other XAML platforms (WPF, Silverlight, and Windows Phone) apply equally to building Windows 8 XAML clients. The Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) pattern has become the de-facto standard for building loosely coupled, maintainable, testable, pattern-based XAML client applications. This course teaches you the key concepts and application of the MVVM pattern using the WinRT platform to build Windows Store XAML Apps for Windows 8.
