We're currently at Aalto University in Finland, where the AppCampus program — a joint project of Microsoft, Nokia and the university — is held for Windows Phone developers around the world to engage in. What exactly is the program all about? We covered AppCampus back in 2012 when the project kicked off. Since then, numerous apps and games have been released on the Windows Phone store, with over $1 million going to participating teams.
As well as access to materials and details surrounding the project, we'll be joining local media outlets today with a presentation about the program. Talking to a handful of the teams here in Finland, Windows Phone Central has been able to grasp a firm understanding about what AppCampus (and the project as a whole) has to offer developers and entrepreneurs.
