Is your app getting lost in the shuffle in the Apple and Google Play Store? I believe that now is the time to take advantage of the potential profit opportunities the Windows App Store presents.
Microsoft is motivated, committed and has the resources to expand its presence plus support app designers and developers to create more content for the platform. By the way, this isn't some paid promotion (aside from perhaps food sponsorship) and I've been meaning to get someone from Microsoft to speak to our group for a while because I think it's a relevant opportunity for the group.
I'm pleased to have Adam Tuliper from Microsoft on board to speak to us about Win 8 app development!

Here's a brief bio
Adam Tuliper works as a Technical Evangelist for Microsoft helping others understand and implement their technical solutions.

He started his work in security and reverse engineering (x86 based - pre .NET) with the direction of going into the software protection and anti-piracy field. This gave him a foundation for learning the internals of other technologies from Win32 systems to CLR systems. Outside of development, Adam has performed security audits and penetration tests as well. He has been deeply involved in .NET internals since early beta and currently works extensively in Windows 8, HTML/JS, Azure, Web API, ASP.NET, SQL Server, MVC, and various open source technologies.
