Porting a Silverlight App to a Metro-Style App published on Visual Studio Magazine

I have a new article published on Visual Studio Magazine today called, “Porting a Silverlight App to a Metro-Style App”. This article take Scott Gu’s famous Silverlight 2 Digg Applications and ports it to Windows 8 Metro-Style. I had a lot of fun writing this article and hope that you enjoy reading it.

Article Introduction

Windows 8, which was introduced at the Microsoft BUILD conference last year, is an exciting new OS that introduced a new UI as well as a new runtime: Windows Runtime, called WinRT. It's the backbone of the new Metro experience in Windows 8. Like many others, I've been playing with Windows 8 and kept hearing that Silverlight skills can be reused in Metro-style applications. I decided to find out for myself by taking a Silverlight 2 project and seeing how easy it was to port to a Windows 8 Metro application using C#/XAML.
