Microsoft Techrewards is sending out emails to its participants that it will be officially closed today, January 6th 2017. Previously known DVLUP, the Techrewards lured budding developers to learn and make applications and games for windows phone platform.
In return, Techrewards gave the developers rewards like Microsoft store gift cards, Amazon cards and so on. With launch of windows 10 on PC and mobile, it started asking them to make UWP apps. Now that, it is closing down, developers are asked to use other Microsoft Programs and while those won’t give you similar freebies, you will still learn a lot. This includes Channel, Virtual Academy, Visual studio dev essentials and IT Pro cloud essentials.
Shown above is the screenshot of email we received.
