Windows Software Development Kit for Windows Store Apps

What is Windows Software Development Kit for Windows Store Apps?

The Windows Software Development Kit for Windows 8 (Windows SDK) contains headers, libraries, and a selection of tools that you can use when you create apps that run on Windows operating systems. You can use the Windows SDK, along with your chosen development environment, to write Windows Store apps (only on Windows 8) using web technologies (such as HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript), native (C++), and managed (C#, Visual Basic) code; desktop applications that use the native (Win32/COM) programming model; or desktop applications that use the managed (.NET Framework) programming model.

About  (from Microsoft)

The Windows SDK also includes the Windows App Certification Kit (ACK) to test your app for the Windows 8 Certification Program and the Windows 7 Logo Program. If you also want to test your app on Windows RT, use the Windows App Certification Kit for Windows RT.
