Rudy Huyn
Rennes, France

I am a French developer, but above all a Windows Phone addict.

It all began at Mobile Word Congress 2010, I watched the keynote from Steve Ballmer where for the first time Windows Phone 7 was presented. I immediately liked the design and the possibility of doing something new, different. Since then I have developed more than 45 apps and I became a Windows Phone MVP and a Nokia Developer Champion.

I have two lives: during the day I work for my company and at night I build my own applications and if I have time, I sleep.
