Lately, I’ve been focusing a lot of effort on the new Microsoft student developer group at St. Pete College, but I’m still a part of the greater Florida .NET community, and as such, I’ve got an AWESOME giveaway I want to share.
Greetings, programs! I’ve been laying a little low lately, but for good reason. Today, I’m very proud to announce two very awesome things: the new Florida Windows Developer logo, and the Florida App Hub for Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8. Read on past the break to find out more.
And I LIKE it.
UPDATE 2015-07-12: The Store API is no longer supported. Windows 10 is on the cusp of release and I’m not sure if I’ll be updating the API to support the new Store data. Therefore, the site has been removed. Thanks you to everyone who used it and found it helpful.
So I got to thinking recently. Which is always dangerous for me. I thought, “Hey, what if I’m working on some app or service, and I need info about an app from the Windows Store? Is there a way to get that via WinRT?” As it turns out, there’s not. Then I thought, “Surely, there has to be a simple way to get it from Microsoft via the web, right?” Wrong. “Wait, maybe someone did this already so I don’t have to reinvent the wheel.” There IS no damn wheel.
So I chiseled one.
I’m not gonna do a lengthy intro, since most of you know me already. Instead, I’ll just say that this is where I’ll put my tech-related crispy bits that aren’t over on 88 Acres. Mostly, this is the stuff that I do for fun. Enjoy!
