Updated – Free Windows 8 programming ebook – Education – MSDN Blogs #yam

Those nice people at Microsoft Press released an update in August to their free ebook ??? it???s a preview version of ???Programming Windows 8 Apps with HTML, CSS and JavaScript???. And it seems perfect timing to highlight it (being absolutely transparent, I didn’t read it when it came out, but I’ve started to read it this week, as I’m spending more time talking to people about building Windows 8 apps for education)

It???s the perfect guide to Windows 8 applications programming, and gives you the whole story for creating Windows 8 apps. As it???s only a second preview version, the whole thing isn???t yet there ??? so far there’s 12 of a planned 17 chapters, along with a download of companion content (code samples etc)

If you???re interested in getting started, or you???ve got students that you know will want to have a go, then this is a great book to download and to share.
