Product Description

This is the second part of Andrea Boschin's ebook 'Windows Store apps with XAML and HTML'.

From the author:

In this second part of the ebook, I'm showing a number of features implemented by both html5 and xaml. The purpose of this ebook is to enable people to easily migrate from a platform to the other when a customer requires an implementation in the language that is not yours. I'm really confident that this ebook will not move anyone from html to xaml or viceversa just because, as I'm strongly trained with xaml and I manage to use it every time I can just because it makes me fast as the light, someone may have the opposite feel. So I hope you may find useful reading these words and they help you to cross the line that separated these two representations of the same story.

About the author:

Andrea BoschinAndrea Boschin is a Silverlight MVP from Italy who currently lives and works in Treviso, a beautiful town near Venice. He started to work in the IT relatively late after doing some various jobs like graphic designer and school teacher. Finally he started to work into the web and learned by himself to program in VB and ASP and later in C# and ASP.NET. Since the start of his work, Andrea found he likes to learn new technologies and take them into the real world. This happened with ASP.NET, the source of his first two MVP awards, and recently with Silverlight, that he started to use from the v1.0 in some real projects. 
Andrea blogs at http://silverlightplayground.org/ and tweets from @aboschin.
