An Interview with WP7 Developer Rodrigue Hajjar

1)Have you developed Apps for any other platforms before? If Yes What are they?

Yes I developed a BlackBerry application called Mobholic .

I chose WP7 because I’m already familiar with .net and I believe the platform is going to have if not already a huge developers community whether it’s for business applications or games.

3)Which one do you think as the single most feature you liked in WP7?

The three ways we can use push notifications is something I really appreciate.

4)Are you satisfied with WP7 Platform development tools?

Yes very, comparing to the tools I’ve used before on other platforms this is without a doubt the best.

5)What are the Apps you are developing now in WP7?Details on the Apps?

I developed Kiva for windows phone 7 and Deed Day.

Kiva for windows phone 7 uses the API and makes lending and being informed about Kiva a lot easier.

Deed Day:

Deed Day is a Windows Phone 7 application that combines social, technology and civil duty to change lives and improve the world we live in!
Everyday a random deed is sent to you, every time you complete one you gain points.
This application will remind/encourage you to be a better person everyday!

6)In what way Microsoft can improve their WP7 or What does WP7 lacks from?

WP7 lacks of task a developer can tap into like accessing the tasks and calendars from the application.

7) Your future plans?

* Take Deed Day to a whole new level.

* Finish my masters in Computer Science.

Thanks Rodrigue for sharing with us. All the best for your future work.
