It’s been great to see that so many Windows Phone developers join us in different events, from the Amigos-tour to WOWZAPP and the Starat-tour! Most of these events have had a Windows 8 focus and we’ve been building some great Windows 8 apps in addition to Windows Phone. But now it’s time to have a pure Windows Phone 8 training!
We’ll organize a training with a speaker from Redmond. In the event you’ll get an introduction to Windows Phone 8 development and explain the new features of WP8. The event is free of charge and it will be organized in Espoo. Stay tuned for updates and registration links. Want to book a seat? Send an email to email@example.com
Yesterday AppCampus announced that they would award the best app idea at WOWZAPP with a 20 000€ grant, for the idea to be taken to the Windows Phone platform. So in addition to all the expert developer support, designer support, great fun and a ton of sleepdeprived geeks, you may be able to boost your idea with 20 000€!
It’s time to register for the greatest hackathon ever! WOWZAPP will be a chance for you to meet a bunch of fellow developers from around the world, experience the newest devices and amaze the world with your crazy app development skills!
The event is free of charge, we’ll provide you with the training, mentors, food & beverages and a lot of fun activity through the code-night! You don’t need any previous experience with Windows 8 app development, we’ll teach you! All you need is your amazing self and your laptop with Windows 8!

It’s summer time, baby! It marks the beginning of chillaxing at the beach, sunburns and colorful drinks with umbrellas! It also marked the release of Windows 8 Release Preview, this means that we’re pretty close to the final version.. it’s time to get ready – and have I got a treat for you!
The Windows 8 Consumer Preview has been around for a while now, this means that you can go and download it on your machine and be … you guessed it be amazed! As a developer, the first thing I was looking for was creating Windows 8 apps and launching them off to the store. You can imagine my disappointment when I realized that I can’t do that – I apologize for everyone around me at that point, the rant-monster went a bit bat-shit-crazy.
Well now I bring good news! It’s time to rock that Windows 8! We’re inviting certain partners to join us at the Windows 8 Quality Labs. “What the freck is that?!” – you think. It’s a lab where you bring your Windows 8 app and we go through it together making sure it’s a “quality app”.
