Hey everyone - I'm posting this for George Salcedo. If you've got questions, he'd be the one to ask. One of these days I'll figure out how to just add someone else's event!
This event is the kick off of a series of events we will be hosting over the coming months. I will be giving a presentation on how Nokia's newDVLUP (http://www.dvlup.com/) works and what it does for you. I'll be introducing you to other programs, tools and support that we are offering our local developers. The program is currently in private beta but I can give you access codes at the event ( or email me at [masked] for a code now ).
Once you are ready to submit an app ( Ready to Publish ), I can cover your first year's Dev Center free. That's one example of how I can work with you to get apps published, promoted and get you the tools you need to get there. Please attend the event for an explanation on the many other incentives and assistance I can offer you ( Like the 3 ways you can get a WP8 device ).
We have secured a room. There will be food and beverages as well as the complete new line of Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 8 devices and companion accessories like the JBL Power Up speaker to engage with. I will be raffling off a new in box Lumia 900 to all of the Dev Attendees and a Nokia Premium Developer Membership! ( Or those wishing to start that have experience ) http://www.developer.nokia.com/Developer_Programs/Premium_program.xhtml
I will also have Lots of cool Nokia Schwag to give away to all of those who attend! ( USB chargers 12 VDC , 2GB flash drives, shirts and other goodies )
Nokia Kicked off a new promotion. Between now and December 31st you can earn 1000 XP for each new WP8 app or game published in Windows Phone Store, and an additional 1000 XP for each existing WP7 app or game updated to support WP8!You can earn gift cards at major retailers, buy phones, accessories and all sorts of rewards via the www.DVLUP.com program.
So please join us on Wednesday, December 19th for a quick presentation and introduction to all of the goodness Nokia is offering! There is a limit of 20 attendees so make sure to RSVP soon! That gives you all a pretty good chance of ending up with a new Lumia phone http://img1.meetupstatic.com/3250963246259337556533/img/smileys/cool.gif * Bring your tablets or laptops!
