Canada is a hotbed for game and app development and our country is
actually the gaming industry’s third largest employer in the world, which is
just one reason the Windows Phone 7 team in Canada loves its app developers.
The Windows Marketplace now holds over 12,000 apps and Windows Phone
7 continues to be focused on supporting developers so they can continue to
deliver the great new apps Canadians crave.
From March 11-13, Canadians across the country went head-to-head in the Great Canadian Appathon,
a 48-hour competition to create a working Windows Phone 7 game with a $25,000
grand prize at stake.
