Windows Store Applications

This tutorial brings together most of the main concepts needed to create a Windows Store application. Using the “Golf Tutorial” example that I have used for other technologies, this sample application is “almost” ready for the Store.

The application stores and manages data on the local machine using SQLite. It provides the user with the ability to store information about golf courses and rounds of golfed played on the courses. It also calculates the golfer’s handicap index as well as the handicap for a specific course.


WinRT concepts used in the application include state management, navigation with multiple pages, “app” bars, and view management such as the “Snapped” view.

To introduce all the functionality and technology, the tutorial includes 18 videos. Hopefully when you complete the tutorial, you will have the skills needed to build your own Windows Store application.

Enjoy … bill
