The book is complete and is off for final reviews

I just wanted to share a quick update on the status of “Programming Windows 8 Apps using Microsoft Visual C++”.

As of today, I have completed the content and samples of the 6 chapters that comprise the book. For first timers, here is the list of chapters in the book. I have sent the final content for reviews internally and if things go well, it should be handed over to the press folks soon.

I do plan to add some bonus content and am working on it. I will share the details on what exactly goes into the bonus content as we get closer to the book launch. I am really excited on the bonus content and I hope you will all like it.

Now it is off to the world’s largest AppFest at Bengaluru on Sep 21-22, 2012.

    I’m a software engineer developing WPF-based GUI apps, and I would love to read it before November… how do you feel about sending me a copy of the ebook in exchange for a promise of a review (on Amazon or wherever you please) and a promise to buy the book from O’Reilly once it becomes available?

          Hi Raul,
          We are putting the book through the final round of review and beginning the production process. It should be available shortly after that. Jan/Feb is my estimate.

    Hi Sridhar,

    Would love to receive a prepublication draft if you’re not contractually prohibited, i.e. as in Consumer Preview eBook a la Charles Petzold’s Programming Windows, 6th.

    All the best,
    A fellow programmer

        No worries! 🙂

        If it’s alright, though, is it possible to e-mail a(n unedited / unreviewed) draft of the final copy? … Waiting another one to two months seems like too long a time to wait. 🙂

        Again, all the best,
        Doktor Faustus
