Lessons learned and journeys taken - DreamTimeStudioZ first 18 months
It's been far too long since I've blogged and probably few people read this feed anymore. Time to share some lessons learned and journeys taken!
First, I'm now officially a teacher... of sorts. Last spring I recorded my first online training course, Windows Phone SDK Essential Training for the Lynda.com Online Training Library.
If you're new to Windows Phone, check it out. It's a pragmatic step-by-step class in how to build 4 useful Windows Phone apps.
Today, I started recording my next course. The topic is still under NDA but I can say that it will appeal to a much wider audience: everyone who creates digital assets.
I'm also in the progress of negotiating a contract to create another SDK-focused course for a different online library which I plan to complete in December... this year.
Since I left Microsoft, I've been building Macintosh desktop apps, created more iPhone/iPad apps, with the latest, NoteZtoSelf, just available in the App Store and more to come before the end of this year.
I've also created some cross-platform hybrid native/web apps for a big name in retailing (can't say who quite yet) and helped a cutting edge museum upgrade its video capture system (can you say Fun with DirectX Filter Graphs?)
Ok, time to get back to work as "teaching" an online course is a give-and-take between recording and tweaking content day-by-day and I've got to get ready for tomorrow's session!
