Windows Phone Ambassador program is no more

In case you missed the news, the (formerly) Nokia Developer Ambassador program is ending at the end of August.

I’ll still be involved in the community (like the Austin Windows Developers!), and I’ll still be working on my Windows Phone apps and writing articles for developers. I won’t have my @microsoft.com email address anymore, but feel free to contact me at greg@gregstoll.com. I will continue to send out monthly-or-so emails about Windows/Windows Phone development – sign up here if you’re interested!

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t disappointed, but I had a great almost 2 years with the program, and I really enjoyed getting to help developers out. Thanks as always to Rich Dunbar and all the other people at Nokia and Microsoft that made the program possible! (special shoutouts to my fellow ambassadors: what happens in Vegas…)

And lastly, thanks to all the developers I had the pleasure of working with. Y’all are what made the job worth doing 🙂

PS I’m still bullish on Windows Phone long-term…this was sad, but it hurts way less than webOS!
