iOS –> Winodws 8 Dev Resources


Windows 8 is a completely reimagined Windows. You can code once and have a great app experience that scales across devices from tablets to all-in-one PCs, from 10″ to 27″ screen sizes. The new Windows Store provides flexibility for selling your app and higher profit potential than the Apple App Store – with an 80% revenue share when you reach $25,000 USD or more in total sales. Unlike Cocoa Touch, which only use Objective-C, the Windows Runtime gives you the flexibility to build native apps using C#, C++ and JavaScript. It’s easy to get started on Windows 8.

You can get started by heading to the Windows Store home page and clicking on the iOS Developers link on the navigation menu. Or you can use the convenient links below :).

One great way to target multiple platforms is to use a framework that will let you keep one code base that will work on different devices. Check out some of our cross-platform partners:

Useful Links for Windows Phone Development

The other day, I was at the Windows Phone Camp at Howard University. We had developers & students and beginners & experts in attendance. I got the pleasure of presenting the sessions on Silverlight and XNA. Similar to other Windows Phone Camps, we also had a hackathon that gave developers a chance to win great prizes like Marketplace subscriptions and even a Windows Phone!

During my presentation I showed a few links to some useful resources for Windows Phone Development. After the presentation I received a lot of requests to post those links so people can refer to them. I’ve compiled the links here! Have some resources that have helped you? Let me know in the comments!
