    Thumbs up Nokia DVLUP, a fun, collaborative, competitive environment to build Windows Phone apps!

    Well Nokia is now encouraging windows app development.. I recently came across a link to their new developers program which goes by the name of DVLUP, and is basically fr windows app developers & Students..
    DVLUP program gives points and rewards to Windows Phone developers, bt interestingly this reward program is partly a game where you can compete with your peers, and maybe even meet some folks to collaborate with. As a player, you can earn badges for your accomplishments. Complete challenges and develop applications, you’ll begin to earn XP points (experience points) which you can redeem the XP for valuable rewards…. You can redeem these points in the Rewards Store for everything from Bluetooth stereo headsets to cool Nokia Lumia handsets to Nokia Premium developer account.

    For details u can go through: http://www.sercononline.com/track.asp?token=330

    This type of step from Nokia is not only better fr Microsoft to stay in the mobile market game but also very useful fr the mobile app development students.. Right now, there are a lot of resources available online to help with Windows Phone development from a technical perspective nd with this program students can earn exciting rewards & compete with others, and maybe even meet some folks to collaborate with….

    Although the OP is a blatant advertisement,

    It should be noted that since Nokia dropped Symbian and adopted MS Windows Phone for its smartphones (which now has been sold off to MS, Nokia no longer is in the smartphone hardware business), Nokia also moved away from QT an to HTML5/CSS3/Javascript as the core development technology.

    This means that current Nokia smartphone development is cross-platform, not just targeting devices but the Development Platform as well which includes openSUSE.

    Using these development tools, you should be able to build Windows Phone apps, and with some imaginative CSS3 even possibly use the same base code to run on other mobile devices.
