Visual Studio Achievements for Windows Phone
By on May 9th, 2012

Have you tried out Visual Studio Achievements – the fun gamification of your every day programming? Head over to Channel9, sign up for an account and download the plugin. And if you are raking your coding achievements already, here’s an app for Windows Phone!


The Windows Phone application developed by Den Delimarsky allows viewing Visual Studio Achievements on the go. The source code for the application is available on Codeplex. You can choose to pull the source and compile a XAP yourself, and then side-load it on your phone.

Interestingly, Den has authored a great series of blog posts about this project on DZone with details on each of the different areas, passing on some lessons learned in building this app.
