Articles will be approximately 2000 words in length for a developer-level/ engineer-level technical audience, and are expected to be "nuts & bolts" in nature. Topics include:
- Win8 touch enabled apps in Java [Desktop, then Store]
- Win8 sensor enabled apps in Java [Desktop, then Store]
- Effectively implementing or developing with the GPS Locator sensor available on Ultrabooks for Win8 apps - Many developers are struggling with this sensor. Looking for a troubleshooting or problem/solution-style treatment.

- Developing and Adapting Apps for Win 8.1 (releasing this fall)
- What is different when developing apps for 8.1 vs. 8 - especially as it applies to apps that utilize touch and sensor capabilities
- What do you need to do to your Win 8 apps for them to work on 8.1 - especially as it applies to touch and sensor
- Designing apps and software so that they work seamlessly across the range of Intel-Architecture devices available such as Ultrabooks (several brands), Tablets (Acer, ASUS, Lenovo - with IA), and Convertibles (Sony, Dell - with IA) - NOT including smartphones at this time because there are currently no IA smartphones available in the US. Making apps cross-platform from a hardware perspective (likely should include devices running both Windows and Android).
