June’s Goal: Get an App Certified for the Windows Store

I’ve set a goal for myself this month of getting an app certified for the Windows 8 store. I’ll be using the following tools and technologies.

I’ve decided to port one of my flashcard applications, Periodic Table, to a Windows 8 HTML 5/JavaScript app. I’ve written the application code for the web so porting shouldn’t be the bulk of work on this project. That’s good because I want this to be about learning how to certify and launch an app in the Windows Store instead of developing a new app.

The first step is upgrading my laptop from Windows 7 to Windows 8 so that I can develop the app. I’ve purchased an upgrade for my laptop from the windows store and am ready to kick off the install. I’ll let you know how that goes and keep you posted as I make progress on this goal.

Wish me luck!
