Hello future app developers!
I’m going to be posting a series of articles on windows phone 8 development.
(roughly one article per week)
I’ll be covering the basics from setting up the IDE & Developer account to creating & uploading your app with advertisements. I’ll be using Visual Studio 2012.
Here’s a rough outline of what I plan to show you:
- Setting up VS 2012 & your developer account
- Creating your first app
- Basic content app (text-blocks, images, scroll-viewer, buttons, navigation,, pivot/panorama pages )
- Adding advertisements
- Using Gimp to create your logos
- Uploading your app
- Promoting & updating your app
I hope these articles help you guys out in your journey to being a successful app developer/hobbyist!
The only prerequisite is that you’ve done some programming.
We’ll be developing in C# (similar to Java) & XAML (similar to XML & HTML).
If you’ve never programmed before then check out a few C# & HTML tutorials first.
Bucky Roberts has 200 C# tutorial videos:
Code Academy has an awesome HTML/CSS tutorial section:
And remember,to have fun!
Creating something from nothing is an amazing feeling.
