Code Warrior Event Seeks to Fill the Gaps in Windows Marketplace

It’s no secret that the Windows Phone platform is lacking in apps when compared to iOS or Android. Our own study of the marketplace showed that only 24% of the top 100 apps available were exclusive to Windows. Even still, there are gaps in services that are offered on other platforms, such as Mint and Paypal to name a few that I miss.

Both Nokia and Microsoft are hoping to close this gap for users by unleashing “code warriors” across 14 cities. These warriors will build new apps that will help even out the Windows Phone ecosystem, with lots of cash and prizes for participating.

If you’re interested in checking it out and possibly participating, you can see the cities listed in the Eventbrite listing set up for the hackathon.
