Almost a week ago, my FallFury series (building a hybrid Windows Store XAML/DirectX/C++ game) was released on Channel9 (since gone, after Channel9 was sunset). 12 articles and associated videos is a lot to go through, and you might not always have an active internet connection.
That’s why Brian Peek tackled the task of creating a PDF version of the series, and he did a fantastic job at it. 130 pages of content that will help you get started with creating games for Windows Store.
Also, remember that you can download the FallFury source code on the official archived project on GitHub.
