Nokia has managed to grab one of the good ones, folks! Justin Angel (see previous coverage), who you know recently from his Metro Pandora SDK as well as WP7 apps 'Neurons' and 'United Nations News', has announced that he is going to work for Nokia as their Principal Engineer on Windows Phone 7 developer experience.
Nokia, you have great taste.
Angel has been a big part of the Sliverlight development community and had previously worked for Microsoft. His experience goes deep as he has worked on iHeartRadio, Silverlight Toolkit, Metro Pandora, WP7 Development Best Practices Wiki, Marketplace statistics and the AVG-gate issue.
While his direct, free reign contribution to the Windows Phone community will be sorely missed, this job will allow him to have a huge influence over Nokia Windows Phones. We'll surely all benefit from his skill, dedication and design decisions in the future.
Daniel Rubino is the Executive Editor of Windows Central, head reviewer, podcast co-host, and analyst. He has been covering Microsoft here since 2007, back when this site was called WMExperts (and later Windows Phone Central). His interests include Windows, Microsoft Surface, laptops, next-gen computing, and arguing with people on the internet.
Congrats Justin! Best of luck to you!
Well that kinda stinks cuz he was starting to spill the beans on all the hidden Mango APIs.
This can only be a good thing. Congrats!
Congratulations - this will really make Nokia WP a premium product
Does this mean, Silverlight is really Dead? ...
