An application suitable for most businesses adopting Win8
This is an old version of the currently published article.

Editorial Note

This article is an entry in our AppInnovation Contest. Articles in this sub-section are not required to be full articles so care should be taken when voting.

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.

I started work in 1989 for LabSystems, based in Altrincham. I had originally expected to stay for six months, but the job was so good I stayed for 12.5 years.

In December 2001 I joined Microsoft as an Application Development Consultant, where I spent lots of time assisting customers with their use of Microsoft technologies.

I left in June 2011 to start my own business, and I do contract development, knowledge sharing and bespoke application development.
