Windows 8 launches this week, but will it be accompanied by music from the heavens above or the wailing of the cursed? It's certainly not an OS that inspires a neutral response, but whether you love it or hate it it's the next iteration of the OS that a lot of developers make their living off, so it's worth, at least, understanding it. Our WinRT section and Windows 8 Design section has a ton of articles relating to Win8 development. If you're interested in tackling the some hardware that supports the full duality of the OS, namely the Ultrabook, then our Ultrabook section will get you up and running.

Which is a great segue for our AppInnovation contest. Only 3 more days for round 1, so the absolute avalanche of entries we've received will cease and an eerie calm will settle as round 1 winners move onto Phase 2: testing and refining their applications on an actual Ultrabook and getting their apps into the AppUp store.

Want to get your hands on an Ultrabook? There are a few left so head over to the AppInnovation contest page and get your entry in before Wednesday.

Also, our Android at Play contest continues. Write an Android app and be in the running for a $25,000 prize. Competition closed November 6 so be quick!

cheers,
Chris Maunder
