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!! The goal is to get as many apps ready for Marketplace submission as possible, to give you the opportunity to get one-on-one assistance from MVPs or Microsoft evangelists to overcome issues that are blocking you, to get help with the Marketplace app submission process and to have some fun along the way.
At these workshops, you can get:
- One-on-one assistance from MVPs and Microsoft Evangelists
- Tutorials on demand on such topics as:
- Startup performance
- Designing with Expression Blend
- Data storage
- – anything else you can think of! –
- Help and advice from your peers
So come along if:
- You’ve got 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 to give the most chance 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 getting them through the Marketplace submission process and we hope to have some superstars 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:
- Windows Phone 7 devices
- An Xbox and Kinect system
- Software licenses for .Net Reflector from RedGate
In addition, every attendant will receive a FREE licence for Phone Elements for Windows Phone 7 worth $299 from Mindscape
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 ).
