Introduction

I'd like to enter the App Innovation Contest however I cannot provide any concrete details as the application is I believe unique and as such I do not wish to give away many details in public. I hope that does not preclude me from entering the contest, I am more than happy to send specific details directly to a representative from Intel.

Background

One of the barriers to successfully adopting a new O/S such as Windows 8 is the huge learning curve that exists when creating Windows Store applications. My idea is to simplify the process of transitioning to App development on Windows 8 for Store based line of business applications.

I have been working on the application for a couple of months now, it's not yet feature complete but I believe that I will be able to produce a suitable first version by the December deadline.

About Me

I have been working on Microsoft focussed development for many years, and spent 9.5 years working at Microsoft UK as an Application Development Consultant, concentrating on ASP.NET, C#, Workflow, WPF and Silverlight. I left in June 2011 to start my own company and have been successfully working ever since with several customers on bespoke systems.
