I am Jean-Pierre Auconie and have been working at Microsoft France since 1992 in Customer Support & Services.
I am what we call internally at Microsoft, an ‘Escalation Engineer’ supporting our customers in BizTalk and SharePoint developments.
I decided to start a personal development on WP as I found this OS very exciting and its UI nice to use and I have to admit that now my ATIV S is my best travelling companion !
I was surprised to find that development on WP was quite fast and easy if you already know C# and are familiar with codehind.
I recognised however that I had to spend a significant amount of time learning Silverlight and, when I see all its capabilities, I realise that I know very little at the moment, but my knowledge and understanding of its power is getting better every day.
With the release of Mango, developing on WP became really interesting as there was so much more possibility for controlling integrated apps.
I started this app in November 2010 with the idea of being able to enter on my phone, anywhere and at any time, my personal or professional expenses (or income) in just a few seconds and to always be able to forecast my account(s) balance at any given date, based on my recurrent transactions.
In my job I frequently have to generate expense reports, so I decided to include an Export feature to export them in a .CSV file easily.
When developing BAM I have always had three key words in mind:
I hope that you will find good reason to use this app and I am open to your feedback and suggestions for its improvement!
