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.

Wiki Home

Welcome to the Nokia Developer Wiki, home to 9075 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. Alternatively browse through categories listed below.

COM winner for September: Oliver Ulm

Green Ribbon.gif

Oliver Ulm (SB Dev ) has been selected as COM winner for the month of September.

Oliver has written a few really useful articles (App deployment options for Windows Phone, How to get the device IP addresses on Windows Phone). In addition he has retested and updated a large number of Windows Phone 7 articles to Windows Phone 8, and provided thorough and detailed editorial correction and technical improvements to others. Finally, he has given excellent technical feedback on a number of new posts (like How to terminate a Windows Phone app), enabling the authors to deliver much more useful and readable articles.

Contributor of the month is usually awarded to wiki contributors who have been active for several months, if only because it usually takes some months for new contributors to develop the skills to create great articles. Oliver is an exceptional exception to this rule!

We'll be sending him 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!
