The best thing about being a developer in the Microsoft technology ecosystem is the terrific support that the company offers to the developers. From dedicated forums and learning resources to public events, the community feeds off this support and grows further.
Microsoft has just launched an Windows Phone app for developers that aggregates official Microsoft resources related to building apps for the Windows Store and Windows Phone Store. The app is titled ‘#wpdev’, picking up from the popular Twitter hashtag that Microsoft and the developer community use on Twitter for sharing development resources and insights.
The app provides latest blog posts, training resources, and partner resources. A Twitter timeline with all tweets tagged #wpdev is also included. Also, the app helps the developers to connect with technology advisors who are experts in developing apps for the Windows Store and the Windows Phone Store.
Microsoft also has another app for Windows developers – Dev Center – that allows developers to access their developer dashboard to see how their published apps are doing.
If you are a Windows developer, download the free app for Windows Phone 8 devices from the Windows Phone Store. It’s a simple, yet useful, app and a handy glance once in a while. Give it a whirl, and let us know how you like it.
