Your first app
It's easier than you think to create an app for the Windows Store, Windows Phone store, or even a universal app. You don't need to learn a new language to start building a Windows app—you can create it with what you already know:
- C#, Visual Basic, or C++ with XAML
- C++ with DirectX
These tutorials help you create your first Windows app in the language of your choice.
Use your .NET, WPF, or Silverlight skills to build a Windows Store app or Windows Phone Store app using XAML with C# or VB.
Take advantage of your programming expertise and use C++ with XAML to build Windows Store apps and Windows Phone Store apps.
Know DirectX? You can develop a Windows Store app that takes full advantage of graphics hardware.
