I recently attended a Windows Phone Developer event put on by Rich Dunbar, who is a Nokia Developer Ambassador, here in Orlando.
I have exchanged some tweets and emails with Rich in the past and watched some feedback from some of the previous events he had put on in the past; and I'll tell you the reviews had been good.
Rich is running a great program. Develop your first application for Windows Phone and get a free App Hub token ($99 value) and once your application is available in the marketplace, he'll send you a Windows Phone 7 device. Not too bad right? Well, I'll tell you it's a legit deal.
The event was a starter for sure, but he has some good advice on marketing your application. For instance, the Nokia Developer site has a deep link there for generating a
cool little banner ad
like this one I did for
Baseball Pro 12
So here is the program.
1. Go to
- See the steps and rules.
3. Get the tools - see Rich's blog
4. Develop! Ask Questions!
5. Follow #wpdev on twitter
6. Reap the benefits
Rich is a great guy, he'll respond to you faster on Twitter than in email, so do that. Feel free to ask me questions as well.
