So I have never developed anything for windows before, but with seeing the hololens preview video it got me excited to start dabbling with this. I have been wanting to dabble with android apps but haven't gotten around to it yet. I was wondering if yall could point me in the right direction to getting started with getting ready to develop for the hololens/windows 10 (as I understand they will be the same development environment) so that when a development kit does come around I can be familiarized with the ecosystem. I have found a small bit of documentation from microsoft so far that I will be perusing that talks about some code samples, etc and I am getting visual studio, etc.

Anything else I should know or go look into that would help me to get ready to develop stuff on hololens?

Yeah definitely interesting.

I'm guessing that developing for Hololens will be very DirectX oritented, while Android development is OpenGL. The general skillset for developing in Android probably wouldn't be readily transferable to Hololens (and vice versa), so if you planned learning on how to develop for both, you'll probably need to learn two completely different skillsets.

It will be interesting to see what frameworks/engines end up supporting Hololens (would probably suit something like Unity?).

For Hololens development specifically? To be honest it's probably a bit early to say (I think Microsoft only announced the Hololens a few months ago). Since it's a Microsoft device, it would be a good bet that it would be powered by the .NET framework, so learning C# might be a good base, but at this point in time I don't think Microsoft have released specific development details (I might be wrong). You'll probably need to wait a little while before a Hololens Developer's book is available.
