This report describes the development of a Windows Store application which runs on a Windows 8 tablet PC. The application was developed for a company that targets television based services and have the requirements of displaying a television guide based on data from a device connected to the television. Both the application and the device communicates with each other via an intermediary web based service.
Established design patterns for object-oriented programming languages were used along with a method called test-driven development in order to accomplish this. Furthermore a comparison between mocking frameworks will be presented for choosing a suitable framework when developing Windows Store applications. The communication model between application and the device is also discussed and evaluated for whether or not it is a suitable method of communication.
