With unprecedented reach across a range of devices and availability in over 200 markets, there’s never been a better time to build for Windows and Windows Phone. APIMash Starter Kits for Windows show you how to use public Web Service APIs (such as Bing, Edmunds, Tom-Tom, Twitter, Tumblr, Yelp, Meetup and many others) to create compelling Windows Apps.
These starter kits will provide you a scenario, an app concept and a rich data set so you can more quickly develop any type of app and in a language of your choice, HTML5/JS or XAML/C#. Each kit calls an API, de-serializes the JSON/XML payload, copies the results in a View Model and binds to UI controls.
In today’s episode Andrew Duthie demos for us the Meetup/ Bing Maps Starter Kit. It leverages the Meetup.com API to search for upcoming meetups near a given location, with optional keyword filtering. Once the meetups are retrieved, the starter kit maps a selected item, and queries the Bing Maps Search API for nearby coffee shops, and maps those as well.

One of my favorites is the Grid App template, which demonstrates how to build an app with a hub page listing grouped items in a ListView control, a group details page, listing information about each group, and an item details page, for information about specific items. more
