You are Here... "Bing Maps for Windows Store Apps Training Kit"

Bing Maps Blog - 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 are happy to announce the release of the Bing Maps for Windows Store Apps Training Kit. This training kit is made up of a PowerPoint slide deck which serves as an overview to create a Windows Store App using Bing Maps. The slide deck also includes information on existing applications which use Bing Maps that are in the Windows Store. In addition to the training deck there are 2 labs. The first has been designed for the JavaScript developer and the second, for the Native code developer. Each lab is made up of multiple exercises and should take around 90 minutes to complete.

So which, if any, of the tracks, applies to XAML/C# development? By "Native" I'm thinking you're talking C++, and the JavaScript seems to be for HTML5 apps, no?

I would like to know how to use the Bing REST services from C#/XAML...

@Clay Shannon "Native" in this case C#/XAML.

Head over to the CodePlex project for this, the Source tab and browse down to the *CS named projects...
