In the sources provided on the Codeplex website, you will find 2 samples including a simple HelloWorldSync and a complete sample Fabrikam, with CRUD operations and synchronization.

Setup

To create a “synchonizable application” that will work on Windows Store apps and Windows Phone 8, you will find in the documentation tab a full tutorial (still in progress)

Here the tutorial parts :

  1. Download and install Sync Framework and Sync Toolkit for WinRT
  2. Generate the code for your database, your server and your client application
  3. Create a fully functional application
  4. Create a filtered application based on a template scope
  5. Handle conflicts

Fabrikam sample

In the following sections (documentation tab), you will learn how to create a very simple application which can synchronize a database within WinRT and WP8 devices
Here is some screenshots of the complete sample :
