Winners of Windows 8 apps contest: Asus Vivo Tabs

Back in November last year we opened a contest for Windows 8 app developers in Belgium and Luxembourg. The rules of the contest were short & clear: publish 5 apps to the Windows Store and be fast! Speed was important, because to win one of the Asus Vivo Tabs you had to be among the first 20 people to do so …

With this blogpost want to say thank you to everyone who participated – we hope it helped you learn a lot about developing apps for the Windows Store!

But unfortunately, not everyone can win … so here are the 20 winners (in alphabetical order). Congratulations!
