Microsoft may not have a huge market share when it comes to smartphones, but they do have some very passionate people creating apps for the platform.

On this episode of CodeCast, we are joined by Robert Shurbet who just happens to be one of those passionate developers.

One of the recent casualties of the now defunct DVLUP Ambassadors program, it has not kept Robert from continuing to create new apps for the Windows Phone platform or help others with their projects.

Join us as Robert talks about the Windows Phone platform and what his thoughts are about developing for it, along with showing us a little bit of what he is currently working on.

 

About our guest

Robert was briefly…very, very, depressingly briefly…a Developer Ambassador for Windows Phone, prior to Microsoft ending that program after the acquisition of Nokia Devices and Services.

By day, Robert leads development of customer facing line-of-business tools using various Microsoft software and technologies for Pivot Technology Solutions, including SQL Server, WCF, MVC and Entity Framework. From 2002–2011 Robert worked for Whole Foods Market, building enterprise applications and mobile device apps using .NET/cf (C#/VB), WinForms, WPF, ASP.NET and Pocket PC/Windows Mobile.

Robert is originally from Texas and currently resides in the San Francisco Bay Area.
