Katmando is being reworked as a Windows Universal Platform application. As part of the reinvention of Katmando we have decided to target Magento 2 as the initial eCommerce platform. Further platforms will be added once we have gone live with this one.
The free WSI Client application is being rewritten to run as a native Windows 8 client. It is still a work in progress but the framework is now complete and the backing code is being migrated across. The biggest challenge at the moment is finding an XML code editor control that works in .NET Core.
I have been a bit silent on this blog as my focus has been on migrating all my development environments to Windows 7. I have also made the decision to move to a 64bit world to gain the advantages this architecture has. It was an easy switch given I started on a new desktop machine and could do a clean install. I then used Windows Easy Transfer to move my files from my old Vista machine to my new Windows 7 machine. Nothing could have been easier!
Now, back to work.
Over at MSDN they are giving away a free eBook covering some of the best technical articles over the last year. Could well be worth checking out.
