Lars, a Windows Phone dev who has been involved in several Hackathons, and has a prominent name in the dev community, is exemplifying the community’s values. He has decided to take the time out of his busy schedule, to teach others how to create some outstanding apps. Take a look to see what he is doing for the dev community.

In between travelling to Sweden to participate in an exclusive Hackathon hosted by Nokia, co-organising the popular DDD Melbourne conference, and of course designing innovative custom software solutions for the clients of Kiandra IT, Lars has also been developing courses for Pluralsight.

Pluralsight is an extremely popular online training site for the dev community. From Australia to America, Pluralsight training videos have helped developers around the world create amazing software.

Lars’ first course Building Windows Phone Apps that Stand Out  is now live, and you can get a sample of it at his blog.

The course will show students how to use some of the best features of the Windows Phone platform to make their apps get noticed.

Producing a Windows Phone app is relatively straight forward. Creating a compelling app that stands out from the crowd and provides real value is much harder.

Lars will highlight some of the key features devs can use to differentiate their Windows Phone app as well as demonstrate how to use live tiles, push notifications, in-app purchases and many more features that can bring real competitive advantage.

We’re looking forward to seeing his first course, and are eagerly awaiting the next one…rumour has it, it will be on testing and error logging for Windows Phone…
