Windows Phone developer rewards program DVLUP launches new website as part of MSDN

DVLUP, a sort of game and rewards site for Windows Phone developers that was previously launched by Nokia, is now officially a part of Microsoft, and has launched a new site as part of MSDN with some new features to boot.

For those of you unfamiliar with DVLUP, the program was launched by Nokia in 2012 as a way for Windows Phone developers to compete against one another and earn rewards. In an email sent out to users today, DVLUP noted that the launch of the new site includes the following updates and features:

  • An updated look and feel that aligns with Microsoft and MSDN sites.
  • Single sign-on integration with MSDN, so you can move freely between DVLUP and other MSDN properties.
  • Existing and new users are required to have a Microsoft Account to participate in DVLUP. We will also use this to migrate existing DVLUP login account users to Microsoft Accounts to make life simpler.
  • We've overhauled the Leaderboard page to better display information for you, and allow for a more fluid experience.
  • Points and XP history have been introduced. You can now see a log of all your Points and XP, to understand what you earned and when.
  • Updates to the Profile page allow you to see and manage all your Challenges, Badges, Points and XP.

This looks like a nice update to an interesting program, for sure. If you're an interested Windows Phone developer, you can check out the new site from the source link below.
