Words from the CTO

Bernardo Castilho Great Windows 8 Apps; Get Started
Bernardo Castilho, Chief Technology Officer

As I considered what I wanted to share with you in this issue of the TechConnection, many ideas came to mind. There is the upcoming BUILD conference, the Presidential race, and Windows 8. After weighing all the options, I felt Windows 8 would likely be what you'd be interested in hearing about from me. Most of us these days, either out of necessity or curiosity, have learned to program in more than one language.
So whether it's C-Sharp, VB, or JavaScript, you are at a crossroads as to which path you take to build the most compelling Windows Store apps. As with the Presidential election, there are debates and various points of view, but one thing that you can count on as you embark on your personal journey is that ComponentOne has the data visualization UI controls, such as layout and input, which you need to create your own "great app".

If you're just getting started with Windows 8 development, there are great resources available. I'd suggest looking at the 8 traits of great Windows Store apps video from Microsoft. Next, take a look and discover new ways to develop in Windows 8 by reading this issue's article below by product manager Greg Lutz.
