Understanding the Windows 8 Metro Grid XAML Project Template
This post will focus on the data model used by this type of application. We need to understand how data is modeled if we plan to architect a cloud-based back-end.
The next few screens will talk a lot about SampleDataGroup and SampleDataItem objects. These are the core data objects used by a Windows 8 Metro Grid Application.
I thought this an awesome introduction to the XAML Metro Grid App project template, specifically how the data works. If you've created a test app off that template but are not really sure where to start or are thinking about doing so, this is a must read article.
