Will there be desktop application development tracks?

I am trying to learn how to develop applications for both Windows, Linux, and OS, as well as how to make them cross platform compatible. Are these topics within treehouse's future scope?

While I'm not sure if there is a full track, check out the javafx course.

I'm not sure how a Track would be developed for this? There are so many options.

David pointed out the JavaFX course, but you can also build applications with Ruby on Rails, Python, Java, PHP, etc... So it kind of depends on what clicks with you. Each of the languages also have many Frameworks associated with them, so you will need to just kind of choose the one best for you.
