Friends,

It’s a news again, Microsoft is back with the I Unlock Joy program 2nd Phase which starts from August 9th 2012 and ends by October 31st 2012 both for Developers and Students. With a lot of response from students and developers all over India, Microsoft has launched the 2nd phase with much more enhanced rules and regulations which they have failed in the 1st Phase of the campaign.

As we start we need to register for the program and develop the applications with the latest Windows Phone SDK which can be downloaded directly from the links provided.
