I’ll try to write some reviews on some of one’s I like in future posts
Is there more tablets to be won?, also I never heard of the App of the Month Competition, how it works?
Oh yeah there is!
5 more tablets left to be won in the next months!
The competition is pretty easy, Build a Modern UI Application (also called Windows Store Application) and send it link to firstname.lastname@example.org,
Don’t have a Developer account to publish your app in the store? No Problem! just send the source code of your App to the same Email and we’ll take care of that for you.
How the decision on what App is the better is based on?
4 things to remember while building your App
- Respect of the Modern UI Design: the better you respect and follow the Modern UI design the better your rating get’s.
- Windows 8 functionalities used in the application: same as the Modern UI Design, the more Windows 8 functionalities your App use the better your rating get’s, for example .. if your app support “Snapped View” that’s a “plus” for you
- Impact of the Application: of course what’s the point on building an application without it having any impact at all .. so the idea makes a great deal here, always give Idea enough thinking before starting your project.
- Complexity of the Application: another of course here too, if you intend to win you may want to stay away from those super basic apps, sure those are great to begin when you’re learning and all and sure you can participate with whatever you like, but always have in mind that you’re in a competition, and there is always a chance for a more complex app to surpass you
all this 4 things I talked about complete each other, so try to not focus on just one side while forgetting the others.
Build a Whole App ! .. wow, impossible, I can’t do it
trust me .. you can! , it’s actually pretty easy if you give it enough time and some dedication, you’ll be surprised on how easy building a Modern UI Application is, especially when you have Visual Studio Professional 2013 as your ultimate tool and all the tutorials you can find all over the internet (you can start with Channel 9 .. it’s amazing), a month with of training and you’ll be able to create amazing Apps
There is also Microsoft Devcamps (I talked a lot about them in previous posts) that you could join to meet and learn from the MSPs and other participants, each month 2 Devcamps are held, last time it was in Oran
