I have a new in-depth article published in print and online in Visual Studio Magazine today called “10 Things Silverlight Devs Need to Know About the Windows Runtime”. If you're an experienced Silverlight developer then this is an article that you don’t want to miss.

See below for more information and a link to the online article in case you didn’t get a print copy.

In this article I document 10 things I've found while building my first WinRT app using XAML/C#; I hope they'll save you time and energy getting used to this new platform.
