Speaker: Lance McCarthy
Are you an Android Dev, iOS dev or Windows Phone dev? You're in luck. I am officially announcing the beginning of a brand new, groundbreaking program (http://nokiawpdev.wordpress.com/2012/11/06/level-up-with-dvlup/) from Nokia for developers, DVLUP. You are formally invited to participate in this currently invite-only program where you earn points for your apps through completing challenges. Spend your XP on Xbox 360s, new Nokia Lumias and more. I will also be giving away two new Nokia Lumias at the meetup, invite codes to join, licenses to the Telerik RadControls and news about a special giveaway (TBA at the group). I will be bringing the swag and the food, you only need to bring the developer inside you..
As the Nokia Developer Ambassador for Boston I will be providing free resources, tools and devices to local devs. I'll explain the details of how you can come on board. In a nutshell, I will pay for your first year's fees for the Windows Developer license and be giving aways phones to devs who bring their app to market. I'll also be continually running contests to win phones, here is the current one (http://nokiawpdev.wordpress.com/2012/11/05/i-want-to-give-you-a-nokia-lumia/).
So come on by, get hooked up and expand your market reach. Nokia is fully backing developers in an all-out way and I'm your new go-to guy for access.
