Are you toying with the idea of developing some Windows Phone 8 applications? Afraid that Microsoft’s development environment doesn’t have anything you need?
Well, fret not. Microsoft has a well-written blog post on its developer portal, highlighting just that: the best tools for developing Windows Phone applications. The tools span everything from planning your application, then designing its visual layout, coding it, and finally testing it before it gets submitted to the Windows Phone store.
After reports, earlier this week, that Nokia wants faster progress from Microsoft, as well as more applications, it’s a good time for the folks over at Redmond to start highlight the tools that make WP8 development easier. While experienced developers will already have processes in place, the advice on offer will be far more useful to first time developers. Who knows – your next source of income could very well come from a million downloads of a simple app for Windows Phone.
