  1. Where can we get the Video On-Demand, I am one of the registered user for this sessions but unfortunately I was not able to attend them.

  2. I got an email from windows phone asking to join DVLUP and how I’m part of an elite group because so many people have downloaded my app (over 10k actually). Does anyone know how exclusive this is and is it worth it. The rewards I’m not that interested in. Is there some cool stuff going on there that I’m not aware of? Is it only for people that have over 5k downloads? Are there hot Finish chicks on there?
    Here’s the link in the email I got: http://www.regengine.com/strack/dvlup191

    • well Dvlup is for all developers who are interested for developing windows phone apps and earn badges along with rewards like a new Nokia Lumia 1020 or 920 for free just with the help of XP’s earns.
