Webinar summary: Are you currently building XAML-based applications using Silverlight or WPF? And are you afraid that all you’ve learned in the past is now suddenly obsolete? 

In this webinar we saw how you can transfer your knowledge to the new Metro-way of building applications. We've done this by looking at a working application that contains most of the features you’ve come to love in Silverlight. 

In this webinar you learn that things like data binding, styling, controls and much more can be leveraged to build applications in Windows 8. After watching this webinar recording, you will see that all of a sudden, you are already an experienced Metro app developer! 

Level 250-300

Agenda for Part 2:

1. Styling and templating
