My First Windows 8 Application

Well last night I got an email back from the Windows Store certification process saying the second submission of my first windows 8 application was approved. The first submission had some minor issues, and although the report wasn’t perfectly clear on what was wrong I was able to take a guess at what those issues were.

Just like with Windows Phone I used the user group I run in the Northwest Phoenix valley (Site) as subject matter for the application. This is a “minimum viable product” version of the application, so is fairly basic and not that pretty looking. More features and some good UI/UX cleanup will be coming in future versions of the application.

Please check it out and install it if you use Windows 8 and leave a review (taking into account it’s a first version with planned updates coming when I can) if you feel inclined to do so.

Kendo UI Presentation at NWVDNUG

One of the things I do in the developer community is run a small .Net developer User Group in the Northwest Phoenix Valley. Our site is at http://nwvdnug.org

So our February meeting is this coming Wednesday, the 27th. This month we are celebrating our first anniversary of the group, and will also be hosting our first presenter from outside the Phoenix area.

Ben Hoelting will be coming and presenting “Building Web Applications Using Kendo UI and the MVVM Pattern”. It was requested a few months ago to have a presentation on Kendo UI and Telerik helped connect us to Ben and to being him down for the presentation.
