Developer website WPGeek rebranded, announces available giveaways


The popular developer resource which aids those who are looking to create content for Windows Phone has been rebranded to better reflect Windows system coverage. WPGeek is now GeekChamp, but fear not as everything remains the same under the hood. The website is sporting a new logo and domain name, with a few giveaways to boot.

Windows resources will be added in the near future, but 50 percent of the focus will remain on Windows Phone. But what about the giveaways? The first is a Syncfusion Essential Studio for Windows Phone (worth $99) for free. To be able to take advantage of the added controls, all that's required is a purchase of the GeekChamp "Windows Phone Toolkit in Depth" 3rd edition e-book. If you've already got a copy, you're also eligible for the giveaway. 1-year's worth of support and updates is included.

To help provide an incentive for developers to create development resources for Windows Phone and Windows 8, the GeekChamp team will be giving away a component of choice to those who write up a development article. Component authors will be compensated in the giveaway so no one loses out. It's a pretty sweet deal and one we're sure will be taken advantage of.

Lol dumbrebranding.com I happen to like WPCentral and WPGeek is better but hey

Name change allows them to do diversify their content

TechnoTim says:

We can probably expect this from WPCentral too, possibly Windows Central after blue

I think that the name is not so important, what is more important is the content offered.  I reaaly like WPCentral because of the variety of good stuff they are posting.  Thanks for the post, everytime when I come to WPCentral I learn something new worth reading, keep up doing!
PS: The offer is true quite good, I would say this is the best combination between open source controls from the toolkit and comercial controls. Altough I always prefr open source, Syncfusion controls are worth trying expecially when they come for free.

Just this morning I was thinking about how WPCentral covers tablets and some Windows 8 things the name Windows Phone Central might need some kind of slight adjustment.
