Our TFS Phone Explorer Application has been Awarded one of the Top Prizes in the Red Gate Software WP7 Competition
03 May 2011
Red Gate are excited about the opportunities for .NET developers, using existing skills and tools to produce fantastic apps for Windows Phone 7. As a result, and supported by Microsoft, Red Gate ran a competition for developers to produce an application that fellow developers would love.
Black Marble entered our WP7 TFS Phone Explorer application, which enables you to access your TFS Server to perform common operations such as viewing recent builds and adding work items. It’s a clear and useful app that calls a custom web service sitting on top of TFS 2008 or TFS 2010.
The Judges liked the sheer practicality of our app and said it showed creative thought about what would deliver the most value in the mobile environment, drawing on our own considerable development experience.
On 5 May 2011, it was announced that we had been awarded one of the top three prizes. Red Gate issued a Press Release announcing the winners and the judges’ comments.
“We’re delighted by the response from the .NET development community and thank Microsoft for its support in promoting and helping to judge the competition,” says Neil Davidson, Red Gate’s co-CEO. “The third ecosystem Microsoft is building provides a huge opportunity for .NET developers to use their skills to develop mobile tools that the community will love.”
