David J Kelley Named Phone 7 Developer Hero of the Week

Microsoft Names David Kelley Windows Phone 7 Developer of the Week Hero:

"David Kelley’s background in UX and as a Silverlight MVP set him up to be a great mobile app developer, which lets him pursue these passions as well as a third – speaking! You can catch David presenting about Windows Phone 7 at local events and some larger ones, like DevConnections.

If David could choose a superpower, it would be immortality … so he could finally have time to check off everything in his Outlook to-do list! And the man certainly is busy; he’s created tons of apps and is still going.

The app that’s closest to his heart is Princess Paper Dolls, with the animation & live tile modeling and voiceovers done by his 4-year-old daughter, Hanna. He watched her play a tablet-based app and decided to make something better for Windows Phone 7. David built the AllRecipes app Dinner Spinner with his team where he works, and created Tools for Phone 7, a.k.a. the “Swiss Army knife” of apps, to put all those handy apps in one place (duct tape not included).

David’s working on a few new apps including a framework for building Windows Phone 7 apps in HTML and JavaScript, so keep watching, developers—more great things to come from this developer hero! "
