Last month, we held a little party where we invited Toronto-area tech press and bloggers to meet some local Windows Phone 7 developers and see what they were working on. This video was shot at the party and features Yours Truly and the developers:
The developers featured in this video are:
- Mark Arteaga: Owner/developer at Redbit Development. He’s been building Microsoft-based phone applications since the Windows Mobile days, and he’s got some pretty interesting apps lined up for some pretty interesting customers – I’m sure you’ll see them soon. You may have seen him (or you will see him, depending on when you’re attending) at TechDays, where he’s doing a two-part series of sessions on WP7 development with Silverlight.
- Mike Kasprzak: Owner/developer at Sykhronics and the guy behind Smiles, a very charming, very addictive puzzle game.
- Barranger Ridler: Indie developer who built Where’s Timmy?, an app that tells you which Tim Hortons are closest to you, and the guy who wrote a WP7 app that won the August Twilio API contest. He now works with Mark Arteaga.
- Alexey Adamsky: Based in Ryerson University’s Digital Media Zone and working with Alex Yakobovich, he developed a 3-D version of Sudoku. If you thought Sudoku was a lot of work in two dimensions…
- Shawn Konopinsky: He’s with Nascent Digital and built Songbuzz, a social music sharing app.
We’re very happy to showcase the work of Canadian developers building Windows Phone apps. Want to join the ranks of the developers in the video? Got a Windows Phone 7 app that’s done or nearly done? Want to get a head start on everyone else trying to submit an app to Windows Phone Marketplace? Drop me – Joey deVilla – a line before Monday, October 18th!
