  • Hi,

    you have the choice between VB, C#, and C++ in combination with XAML (or DirectX). Beside them you can choose JS and HTML. I think the last one is the best fit for you. Just a remark: You've posted in the 'Training and Certification' forum. For better help and support you should ask your question in the appropriate Windows 8 developer forum.

  • I agree,

    Because you have some experience with HTML, you will probably do really well with this. Visual Studio 2012 has great support and tools for developing Windows 8 apps.

    There is a certification track for developing Windows store apps with HTML: three exams, 70-480, 70-481 and 70-482.
