HA NOI (Biz Hub) — Phone application programmers are being invited to register before November 30 for a competition that tests their app-development skills for the Windows Phone 8.

Organised by the Centre for the Development of Information and Technology in partnership with Nokia, Vserv and Microsoft, the competition aims to enhance knowledge and practical experience amongst students and programming aficionados.

Participants are required to upload their applications to the Windows Phone Store before December 24. The organizing committee will monitor the number of downloads from the store that each application attracts between December 25 and January 24, 2014, and will assign scores to each of the applications.

Apps that receive high scores and a large number of downloads will be rewarded. The award ceremony will be held at the Ha Noi Posts and Telecommunications Institute of Technology on January 27, 2014. — VNS
