After the resounding success of the Windows Phone 7 workshops earlier this year, Microsoft has asked us to reprise our act, and is running several more camps. The first two dates have been announced, 17th September in London at LBi and the 24th September in Manchester at The Studio.
LBi is a great venue for an event like this, and although I haven’t been to the Studio in Manchester, if it is anything like The Studio in Birmingham, it too will be great venue.
The events will follow the same successful formula as the earlier events, with peer to peer workshops running all day, and breakout sessions on specific Windows Phone topics. At least two of us from APPA Mundi will be at each event, along with some folks from Microsoft, and we will be available for photographs and autographs throughout the day :)
The Windows Phone Camps are free events which will show you how to learn and build Windows Phone apps. You can work on your own projects with assistance from the APPA Mundi guys , network with others and also have the option of attending short tutorial sessions on Windows Phone related topics.
If you are new to Windows Phone, this is the ideal event for you as you will have the opportunity to understand the general approach and capabilities of Windows Phone development.
The breakout sessions will be more structured, and will be run in a separate area, so you will be able to carry on working undisturbed if you don’t fancy the breakout sessions.
The schedule is less gruelling than the 12 hour sessions of earlier in the year, and the agenda is:-
We will be available all day to answer questions, and work with you on a one-to-one basis to help with your application development.
There will be prizes to give away, and the camps are fully catered. You can get more details on the MSDN blog.
Remember – places are limited so sign up now.
