If you live in one of Nokia’s selected cities (in the United States & Canada) and are a software developer, you can earn “cash, devices, and prizes” for attending and writing some apps on Windows Phone starting May 10th!

To sign up, go to Nokia’s The Code Warrior website and enter your email address. Then, visit the Eventbrite site to register your attendance to one of the events! The cities are:

  • Houston, TX – 5/10/2012
  • Columbus, OH – 5/12/2012
  • Atlanta, GA – 5/15/2012
  • Chicago, IL – 5/17/2012
  • Sunnyvale, CA – 5/19/2012
  • San Diego, CA – 6/2/2012
  • New York, NY – 6/5/2012
  • Vancouver, BC – 6/5/2012
  • Boston, MA – 6/7/2012
  • Miami, FL – 6/7/2012
  • Dallas, TX – 6/12/2012
  • Chevy Chase, MD – 6/12/2012
  • Toronto, ON – 6/12/2012

If this Nokia event is anything like previous Microsoft events I attended, you don’t need much coding experience at all. As prizes, I expect them to be giving away Windows Phones and maybe even Xbox Kinects, as Microsoft has previously done with their developer events.

Microsoft and Nokia have been heavily promoting developers to write for Windows Phone 7 through various prizes and events. Keep reading WMPoweruser to hear about the latest events!
