Windows Phone Geek releases developer magazine

Windows Phone Geek, the developer focused community website, has released a Windows Phone developer magazine. Issue #1 has been made available on its website, which covers a number of topics including the Windows Phone 8 SDK. The website has previously launched a developer marketplace that enables folk to purchase as well as sell components and the like for other developers to make use of.

Windows Phone Geek has proved to be a useful resource for developers on Microsoft's mobile platform, and we've managed to catch up with the folks from the website at previous developer events, including Matt Lacey's WPUG.

  • I have been waiting a long time for the Windows Phone 8 SDK, it seems they have added lots of new stuff. Just downloaded this magazine quite handy read, especially the Wallet and the in app purchesing....
  • thanks going to download it
  • Awesome, subscribed to them and downloaded the first issue.
  • Just went through the whole thing. Thank you.
  • Windows Phone needs a magazine... Hmm. Would it be against the whole Mobile Nations philosophy to do a WPCentral magazine? (Or maybe a Mobile Nations magazine...with an electronic version...)
