Do good while doing well: Build a Windows Phone 7 app and secure a $100 donation for your local user group.

The only thing better than doing something good is when it also helps you do well – and so when we had the opportunity to join with Telerik, a fantastic ISV (that is also) focused on improving developer and application value, and with Microsoft on a campaign to help developers and their local user group chapters – there was no doubt that we were going to want in.

What’s the deal? Simply put, any developer who develops their own Windows Phone app using both Telerik controls and Runtime Intelligence will:

  1. Have $100 donated to their local user group (that’s doing good), and
  2. Have an app on the marketplace that combines a great user experience with the usage and adoption analytics to prove (and improve) it (that’s doing well).

Of course, nothing can be this simple right? – Wrong! To learn more, visit http://www.telerik.com/windowsphoneFTW

You still here? Not convinced yet? Here are some more details…..

All you need to do is:

  • Develop and deploy any WP7 application using Telerik RadControls for Windows Phone AND PreEmptive Runtime Intelligence for Windows Phone, AND
  • Get this done and certified before May 31st 2011

By the way, there is no limit to how many apps you and your user group can submit, but we will only recognize the first 500 qualifying applications – so build early and build often!

Also, needless to say, you are going to have free access to all of the required software. So go on – click through and do some good at http://www.telerik.com/windowsphoneFTW
