Last Saturday, i did a presentation about the Windows 8 Development Platform at the Montreal .NET Community. Along with my co-presenter, we did cover most of the aspect that are involved in the Windows 8 Metro Application.
All of you who are building application for Windows Phone, i invite you to start looking or port your application on Windows 8 Metro. This is a great opportunity to create a nice integration between the Desktop and the Mobile platform. Base on the fact that the application are using mostly the same standard as on Windows Phone development.
So you can start to look at http://dev.windows.com and http://design.windows.com to get more information.
Here is the slide i presented at the events:
For sure this is only the beginning, and i already plan o build some app hat will use both platform.

Hi Canadian Windows Phone developers!

So if you ever wanted to create apps for the Windows Phone, it now time to do so. So by publishing some nice apps, you may be rewarded with some cool prizes ( and yes they are very cool!). You can read all the information on the following website : http://www.developermovement.com/. Do like me and start find some ideas and create nice applications for one of the best phone!
Last week i find something nice. If you have an XBOX there is an advertisement for the Developer Movement. When you go, it give you some info about the contest and you can grab the wallpaper for your dashboard and a player picture. See some pictures :

Hi, this is a long time since i updated my blog. Up to now the new year keep me very busy. This small break (from my blog) is now over (I'll do my best to post update more often). So i decide start by changing the theme of my blog, which reflect my passion for the Windows Phone development. This year i will probably write about Windows 8 development, because in my mind these Windows Phone and Windows 8 development (base on XAML) are very connected.
Recently, I've been interviewed by Frédéric Harper from Microsoft on the “Connexion Developpeur”. The subject of the interview is about the development of the Windows Phone application for TechDays 2011 (Canada).
