This was yet another project that I had to complete during my studies at the University of Derby. The curriculum asked that I developed an app that could be approved and submitted to the Windows App Store. In the end, I settled for the idea of developing a meme generator given the current state of popculture and wide acceptance of memes on the internet. I also thought it would be a fun challenge to dynamically generate images with text overlayed.

  • Developed C++ Windows Runtime Component library for Direct2D and DirectWrite calls and image rendering.
  • Download new templates through HTTP JSON API.
  • Save and share images to Imgur image hosting website.
  • Generate new meme templates through usage of a camera on your Windows 8 device.
  • Share new images through the Share Charm into other installed apps.

My Windows Store App even got mentioned on the Microsoft academic blog a few times!
