Based on the kickoff mobility panel during the 1st day of ArabNet, a survey by the panelists shows that most of the developers in this room are using Windows Phone as their primary development platform. The sad news is that when asked which platform do developers want to develop for in the future – the majority of hands were raised for Android. Clearly, this is a call for us to do a better job at evangelizing the benefits of our platform in MEA.
That being the case, please note that we are looking for innovative students to send to our US headquarters in Redmond, Washington so that you can to provide feedback on our mobile platform– please submit your application to the MEA Windows Phone 7 Challenge!
