Back to developing... for Windows 8!

Posted by Jason Z, 16 April 2012 · 1,678 views

After a fairly long hiatus from posting here (mostly due to moving back to the U.S. from Germany), I am getting back into the development swing of things. Over the past couple weeks, I have been doing lots of work on Hieroglyph 3, and the community around the engine seems to be picking up a bit of steam lately. I've started to try to document the changes that I make to the code base with the Codeplex issue tracker, which I think helps out with communicating to the community too...

Among my coming tasks, I have been looking into building Hieroglyph into a library that can be used on both Windows 8 desktop and Metro style apps. There are several fairly large development hurdles that need to be overcome in order to make this work, and I would like to start a new series of blog posts about what needs to be done, and how to do it.

If you are an indie developer, I would certainly suggest that you take a look at developing for Metro style apps. The Windows store is the natural extension from the various app stores of the mobile world, but with one big difference - there is somewhere around 500,000,000 windows based devices out there. A $1.50 app can add up to a lot of biscuits if it gets hot when you have a customer base of this size - so it is worth taking a shot.

If you haven't already done so, do yourself a favor and check into it!!!
