Windows Phone 7 Workshop
- By the Community, for the Community.
DeveloperDeveloperDeveloper! These FREE one day events build on the success of the previous DeveloperDeveloperDeveloper Days. As before, it is all about developers learning, sharing and interacting with each other in an informal and relaxed atmosphere.
If you are creating apps for Windows Phone 7, as a professional, independent or student developer please join us at one – or all – of these free events, which are all about apps!!
Our goal is to get as many apps ready for Marketplace submission as possible, give you the opportunity to get one-on-one assistance from MVPs or Microsoft evangelists, help you overcome any development and Marketplace submission challenges, and to have some fun along the way.
At these workshops, you’ll receive:
- One-on-one assistance from MVPs and Microsoft Evangelists
- Tutorials on demand on such topics as:
- Startup performance
- Designing with Expression Blend
- Data storage
- Pretty much anything else you can think of!
- Help and advice from your peers
So come along if:
- You have a great idea for an app and need help getting started
- You’re building an app but need help on implementing some features
- You have an app that’s nearly ready and need advice on how to get it through the Marketplace submission process
- You want to learn from, or assist, other WP7 devs
- You want to contribute to the creation of open source libraries, demo/starter apps or components
These events run on a Saturday for developers to attend outside of work or college commitments, starting from 9:00 running through to 21:00. We’ll provide lunch and refreshments!
We’ll be providing expert help including MVPs from APPA Mundi who have loads of experience creating apps and successfully submitting them to Marketplace and we hope to have some evangelists from Microsoft’s DPE group drop by who can help overcome technical challenges, and give advice on WP7 development.
We’ll also be providing prizes at each event:
- A Samsung Omnia Windows Phone 7 Device
- An Xbox and Kinect Console
- Software Licenses
Prizes will be awarded for the best app ideas, for the best app created during the event, the most improved app and there’ll also be random prizes.
Places are limited, so sign up fast! We can accommodate up to 50 developers at each event, so if any event is over-subscribed, we’ll give preference to those who already have a Windows Phone 7 developer account setup on AppHub (http://create.msdn.com ).
