The best way is to get first the visual studio development enviroment. I use the enterprise version, but all these things also should run on the professional version. If this works in the free community version I could not say. Some installation has to be done, especially the package of mobile development. On this page you can find two links. First to an introduction document, second a link to a FormsGalleryBay.zip- file which contains some files. Follow the instructions of the document and you get the first impression what you can do with UI and page control methods on the different platforms. These pages are mainly coming from Github from this adress, but I have changed them a little bit in my lecture and publish this together with an installing documents for beginners. I hope this will help your start. Note that some older projects and documents on Github or other internetpages dealing with this theme are working with winphones, which are now not anymore available.
