Developer’s story: 13 years old, 20 Windows Phone apps
Here’s a brief summary of the career of Mr. Simmons:
- Started 9 months ago
- Learned by watching videos online
- Initially developed games, drawing applications
If that’s not enough of an inspirational story, you could check out the video below where Bruce Kyle from Microsoft interviews the young developer who did all the research about his coding by himself. To try some of his creations on your handset, you could just type in SimzzDev in the Marketplace. Now, it seems eight-grader Robert Nay, who built an app climbing to number one in the free apps on Apple’s App Store, finally got some serious competition.
