As a part of styling our applications, we need to choose which colors we use. In the case of Windows Store apps, we might want the colors to be similar to those of Windows 8. Consistent colors will help users to understand the application more easily and it will also give the feeling that this app belongs to the Windows 8 family. If we use colors which have nothing to do with Windows 8, the application and the user’s experience when using the app feels loose.
Welcome to my blog/portfolio.
My name is Janne Rautiola, I live in Finland and I'm a software developer. Currently my focus is on WinRT development as I'm planning to release a couple of WinRT applications at Microsoft store after Windows 8 is released and the store is opened.
I'll be writing mostly about WinRT development but I'm sure there will also be posts about other stuff, like developing for Azure or maybe even WPF/Silverlight.
If you find my blog helpful, don't be shy to tell me about it. I'll also gladly take any constructive criticism you might have about programming or blog writing in general. I'll also gladly discuss of anything programming related so send me an email if you got something on your mind.

Today I encountered a visual studio build error: “Xaml Internal Error error WMC9999: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.” It prevented me from building the project. Google searches gave me pretty much no information at all. So the only option I was left with was to take out portions of my code and make the project build again.
