It’s much more colorful and engaging, and hopefully it’s easier to find the development and design guidance you need to create beautiful Windows Store apps. Get the details at the Windows 8 app developer blog: Introducing a new Windows Dev Center experience.

The Windows team is focused on growing a vibrant and thriving app ecosystem. This is manifested in three ways: great apps, great economics, and great reach opportunity. The new Dev Center connects app builders, designers, and businesses with the resources they need to succeed in developing great apps and building a business with Windows.

To support these goals, the Dev Center evolved in these areas:

  1. The navigation model has changed so you can find the content relevant to where you are in the app development lifecycle.
  2. The site design highlights top tasks, scenarios, and new content.

In addition to the content, samples, and downloads that developers want; we’ve made it easier to access resources for designers and businesses.

Depending on what you’re building, you can navigate to one of four areas: Windows Store apps, Internet Explorer, Windows desktop, and Hardware. Each of these presents a new experience that addresses the points mentioned above. In this post, we’ll take a closer look at the specific changes made for Windows Store apps. [more]
