Happy New Year! The 2011 was a fantastic year for me, full of energy, new friends, interesting and challenging tasks and I wish everyone a Happy New Year! Looking back at 2011, Windows Phone reached 50,000 apps in the Marketplace and gained a lot of respect and following from users and developers. Happy New Year and Let It Snow!
Every new year is a great opportunity to look back and see what has been done and what’s ahead. Last year I posted several articles that many people found quite useful:
- Flipping Card animation for Windows Phone 7 using Expression Blend
- Windows Phone 7.5 Mango Cheat Sheet – Live Tiles
- 5 Windows Phone games great for holiday travel
- Connect Windows Phone 7 Apps to WordPress using JSON
- MVVM is your friend to get sensor data in Windows Phone 7
- A vector set “I Love Windows Phone” and Metro in SVG
- Connect Windows Phone 7 Apps to WordPress using XMLRPC
- Windows Phone 7.5 Cheat Sheet- Beyond Mango SDK – Toolkits and Controls
I also helped local developer communities, co-working spaces and incubators in Silicon Valley to start developing apps for Windows Phone.
And of course I built apps that already generated thousands of downloads: such as my favorite card games.
Happy New Year to you!
