    With the introduction of Metro style apps for C++ developers, Microsoft now brings the XAML UI platform to native code! I will take you through a lap around creating a Metro style app in XAML and C++. I'll introduce the fundamentals of the XAML platform in WinRT and how C++ developers can easily write applications with a consistent, touch-friendly UI framework. I'll walk through the developer experience in Visual Studio for creating these apps, noting how (and why) code is structured in the project system. I will also demonstrate some of the powerful benefits of XAML in databinding and custom control development. Finally, I will introduce the developer tools that enable you to design XAML in a graphical way within Visual Studio as well as Blend.
