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.

We're holding another wiki article competition!

We'll be picking our winners as soon as possible.

Nokia Asha Wiki Competition 2013H2
Healthcare is being revolutionized by the availability of inexpensive mobile phones that offer powerful processing and local networking features.

We'll be picking our winners as soon as possible.


In this wiki competition we want you to show us how far these possibilities can be taken on the Nokia Asha software platform using just the platform, or in combination with remote sensing devices. It’s your chance to make the world a healthier place.

COM winner for November: Sara Silva

Sara Silva (saramgsilva ) has been selected as Contributor of the Month (COM) winner for November.

Over the last month Sara created 37 new articles and translations on the wiki! These included many articles showing how to use the MVVM Light Toolkit and services in the Cimbalino Windows Phone Toolkit, along with another 7 translations of popular wiki articles to Portuguese.

Sara is a Nokia Developer Champion, and this is the second time she has been selected as COM winner - the last time being in March.

We'll be sending her a Nokia Lumia 925 in the next few days! Please join me in congratulating her 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!
