During the last May 16th the staff @ ITT and myself carried out the satellite edition of the Windows //publish/ event in Ireland.

The event aimed to facilitate local developers and enthusiasts to publish their Windows Store and Windows Phone Apps.

At the end of the evening two winners were presented with one Nokia Lumia 1520 (first place) and one Dell Venue 8 Pro (second place).

The first place went for Neil, a Dubliner building a promising Power Check application. His application uses data from the ESB to show where all the power cuts currently are, and when they will be likely fixed.

The second place was for Breda, a Kerry woman who coded her first application in Windows Phone. That was such as an amazing achievement because proves that determination pays off.

Dell Pro winner
