Welcome to the Nokia Developer Wiki, home to 8887 community created articles, code examples, and other resources for developing on Nokia's Windows Phone (Lumia), Nokia Asha and HERE Location platforms (and all our other service and legacy platforms too).
The wiki is easy to use, but if you do need help there is plenty of guidance in the Help or from our discussion board. Content improvements are welcomed, and significant contribution is rewarded through the Wiki Contributor of the Month program.You can use the search box above (or site search) to find specific topics.

COM winner for April: Marcos Fabio Pereira
Marcos Fabio Pereira (mfabiop ) has been selected as COM winner for the month of April.
Marcos created a number of articles including the very useful How to use SQLite in Windows Phone (and its translation to Portuguese - Como usar o SQLite no Windows Phone). He has also written about How to write a state machine to handle speech recognition and a series of articles on connecting and using the Arduino hardware platform on both Windows Phone and the Nokia Asha software platform: Windows Phone 8 communicating with Arduino using Bluetooth, Windows Phone 8 comunicando com Arduino usando Bluetooth, Series 40 communicating with Arduino using Bluetooth, Simple home automation project with a Windows Phone 8 an Arduino and a TV.
Marcos has every reason to be proud - he was up against the toughest competition in many months, with great articles and translations from bintk , cadlg , vinayppatil and somnathbanik . What set him apart this month was that he also reviewed other developers work and provided helpful constructive criticism to help them improve their work.
Next month we've got another bright red Lumia 820 for our Wiki Contributor of the Month. That could be you - all you need to do is contribute useful articles, example codes, tutorials, or significantly shape up the existing ones!

With a membership in the Nokia Premium Developer Program, you're provided a free license to the entire suite of Telerik RadControls. These controls are designed to decrease the development time for your Nokia Lumia apps and to help increase their ratings in the Windows Phone Store. Over 40 custom are included and they are already used by a number of publishers with top-selling apps. The controls offers a wide range of capabilities to complement the stock UI toolbox, such as powerful animations, data visualisation, and design templates.
In this Lumia App Lab Michael Crump, an evangelist with Telerik, gives you a brief overview of RadControls for Windows Phone, including interaction controls for animations, charting, and trial reminders; productivity controls, including diagnostics; and design controls, including Windows Phone Design Language templates and hub tile controls. Then Michale illustrates how to use the control and development techniques in coding demonstrations.
