Developer Summit Awesomeness

I just returned from the 2013 AT&T Developer Summit in Las Vegas, and boy can I say it was a good one! Approximately 50% of mobile apps submitted to the hackathon were Windows Phone apps and the #1 winner of it all was a… you guessed it, a Windows Phone app! The winner, Ruggero Scorcioni, took home a $30,000 prize for creating an app that uses brainwave readings to determine whether or not it is a good time to make or accept a phone call. We also had other winners who created awesome Windows Phone apps. I’ll write a future post on a list of the winners, for now, lets see some pictures.

Also in the picture, Paras Wadehra (Ambassador- Silicon Valley) and Randy Arnold (Ambassador Northern Texas).

Paras is such a ham… he always knows where the cameraman is. Want more proof, here ya go…

yep, I’d say that’s proof enough (Paras is a really funny guy).
