Windows Phone Developer Experience chief leaves for Amazon
If you pay even a little bit of attention to the Windows Phone ecosystem, you probably know Brandon Watson, who had been the head of Developer Experience for Windows Phone, but now he's moving on to a new gig with Amazon. His job is going to be pretty different though.
While working with Microsoft, Watson has been very outgoing in running contests and getting Windows Phone more visibility as well as working with developers to help make the Marketplace the fastest growing smartphone app store around. His new job with Amazon will be as the Director of the Kindle Cross Platform team, which, as you might guess, is the team responsible for creating the Kindle apps for all of the various platforms around.
Microsoft hasn't announced a replacement yet.
