Windows Developers

Microsoft does a pretty good job of courting developers and keeping them happy in the Windows Phone and Windows ecosystem. They produce a ton of content and resources to make developers successful in their ecosystem. Appy Mondays is a new program that you can watch live on Channel 9 or YouTube. The content will focus on new apps and development tricks. There's also a new contest going on that will give out developers prizes for developing apps for Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1. We're full of developer information after the break!

Appy Mondays

There's a new series on Channel 9 that airs every Monday live. The program is called Appy Mondays and explores new topics in HTML, C#, Objective C, Java and more! Each episode is about 30 minutes long, so something really easy to digest.

We've embedded the first episode above so you can watch it. Be sure to head to the shows homepage on Channel 9 for all the other episodes! You can also follow the #AppyMondays hashtag on Twitter to join the conversation.


You already know about //build/, but now it's time to //publish/. Microsoft is launching a new series of global events to help energize developers to build and publish apps for Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 8.1. The events take place over May 16 and May 17 around the world.

Daniel will be at his local event in Boston. And there's a good chance I might visit my local //publish/ event in Orange County. There are over 60 of these events happening around the world. You'll get a chance to get experts to help you work on your apps and you might event win some prizes!

Be sure to head to the //publish/ website to find and register for your local event. Can't attend? Check out the //publish/ contest to still win prizes!
