Windows 8 dev Featured

Windows 8 dev… Have you every wanted to try it? With so many resources online (due in part to a huge push by Microsoft), you have a wealth of information at your fingertips. A good starting place is the following article by Mickey MacDonald. He talks about creating a Windows 8 app in just 24 hours using Blend (without having any prior experience with Blend). Have a look at his post surrounding the development of his ‘Cookie Fortune’ app.

Tom Clifton then describes why he wanted to dual boot Windows 8 and shows us just how to do it. So if you want to try out Windows 8, you can always dual boot it before taking the plunge of using a new OS. (Others out there can afford to go all in)

Then The Next Web reports on a study that found Internet Explorer 10 blocking malware better than other browsers. Sean Sexton also talks about using the Generic Stack Class. Lastly, go ahead and take a look at one of my favourite blogs out there, James Michael Hare’s site is a gem chock and block full of excellent content. Do yourself a favour and check out his Little Wonders series. It is well worth the read.

Have a great day today! Here is The (slightly different) Daily Six Pack!
