Windows phone 8 oData SAP apps – free resources

Can I in advance apologise for posting yet another “Microsoft” related blog post. It comes from my research in how best to write a Windows phone 8 app using existing skills within the Capgemini Mobile App factory.

My conclusions to date are that we should code Windows store apps using HTML5 / CSS3 / Javascript and use the WinJS library etc. As its fairly easy to use a Javascript environment to synchronise data with Netweaver Mobile / Hana. And with SUP 2.2 whenever Sybase release it !

I would have preferred to use SUP Replication, but no such capability yet exists.

Late last week I discovered that Microsoft has a new path in their MCSD (Microsoft Certified Solution Developer) certification path. Namely 70-480, 70-481, 70-482 all to do with writing apps which are HTML5 enabled. For example  Microsoft. Exam 70-480

Whats cool 🙂 is that the exam can be taken for free using voucher code HTMLJMP, 😛 I have already booked my place using this code.

Microsoft have also launched a good series of Training Video’s to get up to speed on HTML5 etc, the best place to watch these if from the MVA – Microsoft Virtual Academy Jump start video’s :

Microsoft virtual academy – tracks – developing-html5-apps-jump-start

And lastly there is an excellent Book which can be read that covers the subject:

A-book-on-windows-8-apps-and-html

For those in Madrid’s SAP innoJam – You have 48 hours to watch all the video’s 🙂
