Once you get your Microsoft Developer’s account and download Visual Studio, you start exploring and creating a simple calculator app project right away. You start with the basic shell, create a grid to add the buttons and then hook everything up just like a real calculator!

Since most modern apps need to look good no matter what orientation or size of device they are viewed with, you need to consider different layout, view and orientation options. As you add and set these options, you also look at other important elements that need to be included in your app, like Icons, About and Privacy Policy information as well as the all-important App Manifest. Knowing the right way to create and add these elements will make a big difference to whether your app will pass or fail the certification process.

Once the app is complete, you learn how to reserve and set up a name for it in the Windows Store Dashboard. All that’s left is to upload, describe and submit your application for certification. In a single course you go from zero to a basic submitted Windows app... It’s just that easy!

Watch all the courses in our growing Windows 8 App Development series to learn how to become a Microsoft Windows app developer!
