There are plenty of posts around on how to actually install the Windows 8 consumer Preview, so I’m not going to both covering that right now, but there were a couple of really useful resources that I wanted to highlight.
First up is some great design resources for designing the user experience for Metro style apps: http://design.windows.com. This includes:
- Guidance on how to implement common design patterns in Metro style apps for navigation, commanding and touch interaction.
- PhotoShop design assets for common controls and layouts.
- Detailed UX guidelines.
- Guidance for assessing usability.
Go forth and enjoy!
