At 13, Johnny Simmons is not your average teenager! He is the lead developer of SimzzDev and has successfully launched almost 20 apps for Windows Phone. Now that’s an amazing feat!

On Friday, we had a Windows Phone Unleashed event (Read Windows Phone Hackathon!) in Bellevue, WA. This event was from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM and we had close to a hundred people participate. Like all other Windows Phone unleashed events, we had 3 winners and the first prize was awarded to Johnny Simmons for his Signature app.
