Please note that as of October 24, 2014, the Nokia Developer Wiki will no longer be accepting user contributions, including new entries, edits and comments, as we begin transitioning to our new home, in the Windows Phone Development Wiki. We plan to move over the majority of the existing entries. Thanks for all your past and future contributions.

COM winner for August: Paulo Morgado

Green Ribbon.gif

Paulo Morgado (paulo.morgado ) has been selected as COM winner for the month of August.

Over the last few months he has written a number of really interesting and useful wiki articles about asynchronous programming on Windows Phone (Bringing async/await to the Contacts service, How to (not) deadlock your UI using async-await) and Reactive Services (Implementing GeoCordinateWatcher as a Reactive Service, Observable vs. Task). He also translated these to his native Portuguese: Trazendo async/await ao serviço de contactos, Como (não) paralisar a UI usando async-await, Observável vs. Tarefa. Finally, we were also pleased to see Paulo offering advice against related articles on asynchronous programming, helping to improve those articles too.

We'll be sending Paulo a Nokia Lumia 720 and a Monster Headset. Please join me in congratulating him on the discussion boards.

Next month we've got another great Lumia device for our Wiki Contributor of the Month. That could be one of our great contributors from last month or it could be you: all you need to do is contribute useful articles, example codes, tutorials, or significantly shape up the existing ones!
