For the special debut of “Metro Revealed: Building Windows 8 apps with HTML5 and JavaScript,” Apress has taken the opportunity to offer free copies of the eBook on May 1, 2012 at apress.com. Developers awaiting a first look at Windows 8 app development can get ahead of the game with Apress’s brand new Metro Revealed books, written by veteran author, Adam Freeman. “Metro Revealed: Building Windows 8 apps with HTML5 and JavaScript” and “Metro Revealed: Building Windows 8 apps with XAML and C#” clearly explain how to create touch-enabled applications on both desktop and Windows Phone devices on the latest Metro application framework.

These books dive into no-fluff content, teaching users how to create Metro applications, apply a touch-enabled user interface, utilize the Metro persistence model to store app data and application state, and access the content remotely using Metro networking. Readers will have the opportunity to focus on how to package and deploy a Metro app in the Windows app store.
Freeman divides each book into two core topics, HTML5 and JavaScript or XAML and C# to zero in on the languages programmers use most. Metro Revealed is geared towards developers that are working with the Consumer Preview, allowing them to get ahead of the curve and fully understand the new features that the system is implementing.

Starting this May, Apress will also be rolling out its latest .NET titles in its Alpha program, which allows readers to get a first look at early, unedited content before a book’s final release. Alpha caters to users who want to get a head start in learning about the newest versions of Microsoft technologies.
