Back in June, Microsoft announced a “Summer Break” offer for developers who want to build Windows Phone apps. The Dev Center registration was reduced to a $19 annual registration fee (normally $99 for individuals and companies). Todd Brix from Windows Phone team today tweeted that Microsoft will continue its dev center fee as $19 even though the “Summer Break” offers ends today.
I think this is a right move from Microsoft, because developer center registration fee should never drive away a developer from Windows Phone platform. What do you think?
