Barbaric September: Releasing My Very First Windows Phone App to Market

Barbaric Monthly is my attempt at building/improving a coding project per month so that I can experiment with old and new technologies, learn ad infinitum, remain excited about the craft and nurture my passion for software development. This Barbaric Monthly is about developing a windows phone application and releasing it to market.

Wo! Time warps around me! Where did that last week go?!? I remember going to welcome my Sri Lankan colleagues on Monday, and then… monthiversay with Malin on Thursday… fast-forward to now that I’m sitting on the couch writing… sick… :)

Talking about time passing fast and unfulfilled goals, one of the objectives I had for this year was to release at least three Windows Phone 7 apps into the Marketplace, fast-forward to today (again) and how many apps have I released? 0, zero, none, null. Sad but true… so there comes Barbaric Monthly to the rescue! This month I will stop playing around, no more half-baked apps, no more exercises, this month I will build [at least] a WP7 app - albeit a simple one - and I will go through the whole process of releasing it to market.

I have not quite thought yet what is exactly what I am going to build this time, but please follow along because I will be revealing more details in my next post on these series.

P.S: Did you have the change to see Nokia’s event on Wednesday? Wasn’t that Nokia Lumia 920 beautiful? Way to Go Nokrosoft!
