Developers are pretty cool and they also happen to make useful things. I like to think this is why Nokia with several partners came up with DVLUP(pronounce Develop). So what’s DVLUP?
Short answer – gamification of app development.
Longer answer – it is a loyalty program designed to help motivate and optimize developers. With the points you gain from completing challenges you can claim devices, developer tools gift card and a plethora of other cool goodies
There isn’t much for me to write about really. You publish your apps the platform benefits and in turn through DVLUP you benefit! Win! Win!
Joining the program couldn’t be easier, head on over to DVLUP (my referral link) or hit www.dvlup.com.
