The Canadian Developer Connection experience as you know it today consists of the blog and corresponding Twitter and Facebook pages. It also has a very active discussion group on LinkedIn where some of you are already networking and sharing your thoughts (if you’re not a member of the group yet, you’re invited! Join us.) and a monthly show, D³: LIVE & INTERACTIVE, with news, feature presentations, and live guests.
You can now enhance that experience by taking the Canadian Developer Connection on the go with you with the brand new Windows Phone app released into the Windows Phone Marketplace yesterday.
These screenshots will give you a teaser of the app:
In this first version, you can:
- Get the latest developer news from our news feed
- Read posts on the Canadian Developer Connection online or offline
- Download and watch episodes of D³: LIVE & INTERACTIVE videos while on the go
- Share or email post and videos links to your friends
- Get to know us, the team behind the Canadian Developer Connection by checking out our bios, social networks, recent posts, tweets, etc. You can even pin one (or more of us) to your Start Menu for quick access to us!
There are more features to come but we were so excited about the app, that we just couldn’t wait to get it out there!
Go ahead, get the app and get tuned in. Then, join the conversation on LinkedIn to share your feedback and ideas for new features. Also, don’t forget to share the news with your colleagues and friends on Twitter and Facebook!
Special thanks to the man that made the app possible, Sébastien Lachance!
