While I am working through technical details and the bits&bytes of various aspects of WinRT and WinPRT applications, there is a lot going on in SDX as well. And we share quite a bit of this work…
Roadshows and Conference…
AFAIK, there are still free seats available!
Matthias and Daniel also spoke at the ALM Days 2012 in November:
I’m not sure if the presentations will be made available online…
Much of this is based on Matthias’ LOB reference application: SDX Privatbilanz (German).
On top of that, several colleagues are also providing information on their blogs, as well as on the company blog:
- The company blog (German) features Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 regularly: http://flurfunk.sdx-ag.de/search/label/WinRT
- Patric mainly works on Windows Phone 8: http://dotnet-redzone.blogspot.de/search/label/Windows%20Phone%208
- Matthias also has his own blog (though he’s been very busy with the roadshow lately): http://www.minddriven.de/index.php/category/technology/windows-8/winrt
- And Sven looks at AppStore applications from the infrastructure perspective: http://svenerikmatzen.wordpress.com/2012/11/29/adventures-in-windows-8-sideloading-2/
This release was meant to check out the publishing process, and the team met that demand quite well. Next releases will focus on the backend (we intend to use Microsoft CRM), and there are already a lot of discussions going on regarding the user experience of Windows Store Apps.
I have really no idea what any of my colleagues may come up with next. Judging from what they produced during the last months, and given the fact that we have some holydays ahead… . Well. After working for SDX for more than a couple of years, it is still one of the most vibrant and intriguing companies I know.
Merry Christmas and a happy new year!
That’s all for now folks,
