Description

We met James Vertisan, the CEO of Executive Caddie, at a Windows Phone 7 Firestarter event last Fall. James was extremely impressed by the features and potential of Windows Phone 7, and set off on moving his successful iPhone application to the new platform. Four months later, Executive Caddie has a number of products in the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace, including Executive Caddie,  Golf Rangefinder, Golf GPS, Golf Shot Tracker, and others.

I talked to James at his office in Tampa, Florida about bringing Executive Caddie to Windows Phone 7 and about his companies use of Microsoft technologies in building out a set of products and services that can help golfers get the most they can out of the game.

      Excellent interview, particularly regarding the comparison between developing apps for the iPhone | Windows Phone 7.

      Great interview.  The products and services were well thought out.  There's a product for every level of golfer and pocket book.  The Apps and web site are very nice.
