Ideas – the currency of the future (kinda are now already) – here, some of these hundreds of thousand of ideas are turned into real apps.

Here’s the annual Nokia Hackathon, 40 Developers, challenging each other to build the best apps. No sleep. ha.

Here’s a collection of other videos from Nokia Dev Forum:

Monetizing apps


PopCap and Windows Phone (think, Plants vs Zombies. I was an addict of this game. Such fun! Shame, I think I met pretty much all the dev teams on the experience booths except the PopCap guy)

Sameer Baroova, Director and Eddie Dowse, Business Development Manager for PopCap discuss their experiences working on their hugely succesful game, Plants vs. Zombies for Windows Phone. Sameer and Eddie look forward to the combination of Nokia and Microsoft around the Windows Phone ecosystem. “It’s like electricity, you only notice it when it’s not there,” says Eddie. “Good ecosystems should just work in the background.” They also noted that you are getting the best of Microsoft and Nokia together, which is a powerful combination.
