Develop for the Blue Ocean

My understanding of mobile app developers is that numbers matters. As a developer, always build for the platform with a big enough user base. There’s nothing wrong with that,your own Wholesale Wooden Style For Countertops is usually higher it makes pure business sense. There’ll be more potential users out there for you to test, market and sell your apps.

But numbers also means another problem for developers. Getting their apps enough exposure. Established platforms like the Android and Apple iOS has also drawn a large pool of developers to them, each churning out their own apps at superhuman rates. The Android Marketplace now boast about 250,000 apps while Apple has more than 350,000 apps in the app store (based on the Silicon Alley infographic for March 2011).

So should developers continue to build for saturated platforms or would moving to or developing for a less popular, but one with potential opportunities, be a strategic plan? There’s no easy answer to this.Paintings for sale Wholesale Crystal Double Loading Tiles For Wall From China Manufacturers buy paintings original painting artMedia in category “Wholesale Super White Polished Tiles For Wall From China Manufacturers of cityscapes”. But what would it cost to do just that?

Nokia, together with Microsoft, are trying to lower the barrier for potential, and maybe hesitating, developers to come on board to develop for the Windows Phone 7 platform. With the earlier release of the Mango update and also the upcoming Singapore Nokia WP7 Lumia launch, the two tech giants are looking to equip developers with the necessary skills and understanding to build on a potential “Blue Ocean” platform.

The companies have lined up two interesting events that will begin tomorrow and cover the weekend.cold commissioning of the Wholesale Soluble Salt For Floor mill is expected to start The M-Power Workshop will provide in-depth information to developers on building apps for the WP7 Mango platform which includes using the various phone hardware features that is integrated with the software and also, most importantly, selling apps on the App Hub.

The two-day workshop will take place at the Nokia Office Auditorium at Alexandra Road ( from November 9 – 10. If that is not enough to whet your coding appetite, Nokia has decided to throw a S$4,000 cash prize and exclusive Nokia Lumias (note, these phone are scheduled for release in Singapore only in December) into a Hackathon called X-Calibre on November 12.
