Microsoft posts Windows 8 app porting guide roundup, forgets to include BASIC

Let’s say you’re a developer eager to convert your apps for Windows 8 as soon as possible. Where do you start? Microsoft Developer Evangelist Jennifer Marsman is very much aware that you might be at a loss, so she has done the rather large favor of rounding up every porting guide the company has to offer in one handy place. Some of these are pure design guides, like a previously spotted iPad-to-Metro layout article, but others dig deep into converting code for the land of home tiles and charms. The focus is on porting from the web and Windows Phone 7, so we wouldn’t work up hopes of bringing your high school computer class project to Metro. Still, Marsman is looking for more guides from readers; if you’ve developed just the technique to convert 10 PRINT “HELLO WORLD” 20 GOTO 10 into a tablet-native Windows 8 app, return the generosity and leave pointers at the source link.
