  • Blog Post: App Building Made Easier–Step 3

    In the last few posts, hopefully I’ve been able to plant a seed in your head about training – learning new technologies and skills – as a hobby rather than trying to do it through work (unless you can, of course, which would make it that much more efficient!).

  • Blog Post: Building Apps as a Hobby Made Easy

    Last week I hope to have planted a seed in your head about training – learning new technologies and skills – as a hobby rather than attempting to do it during work hours (unless you can, of course, which would make it that much more efficient!).

  • Blog Post: A Helping Hand Through the Building An App Maze

  • Blog Post: Starting From Absolute Beginnings, Not Such a Bad Thing

    Over the last few weeks, when things were relatively quiet around the office and in the developer community, I decided that I was going to take advantage of the “extra” time, roll up my sleeves, and finally sit down and write a Windows Store app from start to finish. “What?”, you ask, “you haven’t yet...
  • Blog Post: Windows Phone 8 for the Holidays

    While I’d love to say that I’m giving you each a Windows Phone 8 device for the holidays, I can’t. Sorry.
