Discussing Windows 8 development – An Interview with Naveen Jain CEO of Sparkart Part 2

I met a lot of executives who were interested in Windows 8 and the related development tools at the BUILD conference this September.

One of those executives was Naveen Jain who is the CEO of Sparkart Inc. located in Oakland California.

This is part 2 of an interview I did with Naveen Jain and his VP of Engineering Daniel O’Shea of Sparkart Inc. back at their headquarters.

You can see Part 1 here.

I recommend you watch this series if you want to understand a little bit more about how Microsoft’s new development tools will affect real life businesses.

In Part 2 of this interview, Naveen and his VP of Engineering Daniel O’Shea discuss a little bit about the differences between developing applications for Windows 8 and developing for Apple devices, apps being able to talk to each other and some of the perceived shortcomings of the Windows 8 developer preview.

We also discuss the release schedule for Windows 8, the Windows 8 development blog and Microsoft’s communication style for this new release.
