Bing Maps for Windows Store Apps Training Kit

Bing Maps for Windows Store apps combine the power of Windows 8 and Bing™ Maps to provide an enhanced mapping experience for Windows Store apps. Developers can use this Bing Maps control to incorporate the latest road maps, aerial views, and low-angle high-resolution images into a Windows Store app.

Today we would like to announce the release of the Bing Maps for Windows Store Apps Training Kit. This training kit consists of a power point slide deck which gives an overview of how to create a Windows Store App that uses Bing Maps. This slide deck also includes some information on existing applications which use Bing Maps that are in the Windows Store. In addition to the training slide deck there are also 2 labs. The first one is designed for the JavaScript developer and the second one is for the Native code developer. Each lab is made up of multiple exercises and should take around 90 minutes to complete.
