Along with the Windows Phone 8 SDK release, Microsoft also announced a new offer to get new developers on board for the platform. For the next 8 days individual developers can register for a Dev Center account for just $8 (a 92 percent savings). Youâ€™ll be charged $99 USD or equivalent in your local currency, and Microsoft will refund the difference in the next 30 to 45 days.
You can read more about it on Dev Center soon.
