It has been reported in recent news that KODI will be made as a full UWP application. I am a UWP developer and I want to get involved. How do I do that?

it seems the devs have gone for the throw-over-the-wall open source approach on this one. no idea why, i guess if msft is involved that might be it.

Thanks.

We are currently looking into what parts of our code needs adjusting, cleaned up or completely redesigned to fit UWP. Our guys are going through the changes and once we have something relatively working we'll open up a PR/branch to work on. For now i'd strongly suggest you get yourself familiar with the Kodi code as it's not the average project Wink

We'll be certain to mention when the code comes up for others to join
