The Need

In preparation for the release of Windows 8, the Patterns & Practices team within Server and Tools asked Produxs to design an application they would use to teach developers how to build Windows 8 applications.

The Solution

Released with Windows 8 in 2012, the Hilo source code and documentation is used to demonstrate how to build a complete Windows Store app using JavaScript. The Hilo end-to-end photo sample provides guidance to JavaScript developers that want to create a Windows 8 app using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, the Windows Runtime, and recommended development patterns.
