One neat thing about HTML5 is the ability to store data locally, and a common use for that is creating a high score board for your game.  The following is how I recently deployed this.  This code is working in my WinRT app however it could be done in a pure HTML5 app running for PC desktop by sim...

Ultimate Coder Week 3: Criticism Turns to Respect While Favorites Emerge
Von Bob Duffy (Intel) Veröffentlicht am 03.09.2012 0
Week 3 has us mid-way through the developers’ work and we are seeing some struggle, and some find their way. A lot is still to happen and from the Intel side I can say we really have had no idea what situation these developers would be in; whether we’d get any apps completed or if these apps would be done within a week’s time. As the judges express this week, this is the real deal, none of these developers are not taking the easy way out. For some the decisions and paths have worked out well, and for others there have been roadblocks. But we are only half way through with a lot more work to happen as the work and polish is put on these apps. One thing is for certain this week; the judges are seeing these developers in a new light and they are starting to connect with the work and efforts. Here’s a break down of week three.

Ultrabook Ultimate Coder Week 2: Gaps in tech initiate restarts and innovation

I have to remind myself that Week 2 is actually the end of Week 1, and with that it is a bit mind boggling these developers are already deep into the tech after 1 week. We are already learning a lot from these projects. Any developer considering an Windows 8 project should certainly tune in. Ther...
