Last Friday I presented a session at the Dutch Microsoft DevDays
in the Hague. It was a tips & tricks session about earning money with Windows Phone 7 apps in which I covered everything except the app development itself. Subjects covered included the marketplace submission process, trial & marketplace tasks, advertising, reports & feedback and runtime intelligence. The goal was to provide a high-level overview of the different aspects of making money with WP7 applications to motivate all developers to spend just a little more time thinking about marketing their app. My session has been recorded and will be published on Channel9
later this week, it was presented in Dutch and therefore probably irrelevant to most of the world 😉
I will publish some in-depth blogposts covering marketplace submission, trial mode, marketplace tasks, advertising, reports & feedback and runtime intelligence during this and next week. I blogged about implementing trial mode
back in December, but I will also publish a new and improved post on this subject.
This years DevDays have been yet another great experience and I want to thank everyone for making it happen, especially Arie Leeuwesteijn
and Matthijs Hoekstra
. It has been great catching up with the Dutch WP7 community
and other speakers. See you all next year!
