Windows Store Applications are new applications written using VS 2012 to work with the Intel and ARM versions of Windows 8 such as the Surface. This presentation will look into concrete code examples of writing these applications in C# including application lifecycle management (debugging the suspend request), new features to asynchronous programming, accessing hardware components through WinRT including files and the camera, setting up application permissions and connecting to external services (that data has to be stored somewhere).
