Calling all students! Will you have any extra time in December or January? Are you feeling entrepreneurial? Have an idea for an app and want to make it a reality? Want a little incentive to make your vision come true? Stop dreaming and start your app (or apps) now!
Get all the details at the Windows 8 App Challenge on Facebook.
Please join me at the Microsoft Store in Scottsdale, AZ on December 12th between 6PM and 9PM when I chat about Monetization and Windows Store Certification. In this casual setting we will cover how to submit your app to the Windows Store and teach you all the different methods for making money with your apps and games on Windows 8 including free with Ads, free with in-app purchases, try and buy and paid.
I have recently acquired GameMaker by Yo Yo Games for cross-platform game development. Among the supported platforms are Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8!
This gaming tool allows anyone with decent computer skills to develop a game rapidly. I recently lead a group of students (many who had never written a single line of code before) to create a simple game in one hour. I could not believe how much the students accomplished in such a short period of time.
I highly recommend GameMaker, and suggest you start creating your game today! There is a free version of GameMaker available to download now. However, I strongly suggest that you buy GameMaker:Studio Professional while it is 50% off (offer ends January 4th 2013).
