Ultimate Coder Week 3: Criticism Turns to Respect While Favorites Emerge
di Bob Duffy (Intel) Pubblicato il 03/09/12 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.

We are already learning a lot from these projects. Any developer considering an Windows 8 project should certainly tune in. Ther...
