While Windows Phone is famous for customer satisfaction, it should also be famous for its ease of development, and the platform just won a 17 year old an internship at Facebook.
Nive Jayaseker is a 17-year old US high school graduate who won a $10,500 prize at a San Francisco hackathon event by creating a mobile app for Home Depot in only a weekend earlier this month.
She created a Windows Phone project organiser for Home Depot which made it easy for both novices and experiences gardeners to find materials for landscaping projects.
She met Emily White, Facebookâ€™s director of mobile partnerships at the presentation for the event who was so impressed with her work she was offered a summer internship at Facebook.
White is quoted as saying: â€œNive is amazing and Iâ€™m going to be working for her someday.â€
While I am sure Jayaseker is an amazing developer, I cant help but think the style and ease of development of Windows Phone had something to do her success.
