It looks like the MSDN team has arranged some deep dives into Windows Phone development across the country.  I am sure that for Microsoft developers Windows Phone 7 represents a new opportunity to get out in the marketplace with your XAML skills and get recognized (paid) for your work!  It has been exciting to see a lot of interest from Silverlight developers in Windows Phone 7.

Windows Phone 7

If you are one that hasn’t had the time to soak in the platform or simply haven’t been paying attention, you are in luck.  There are a series of launch events happening across the country, most of which involve a 2-day training (free) for Windows Phone 7.  Here’s what I could gather for the basic agenda for these 2-day workshops:

  • Day 1: Intro, sensors, application lifecycle, tiles, application bar, connecting to services, recording audio, capturing pictures, design guidelines, game development with Silverlight/XNA, etc. – all the fundamentals to get started
  • Day 2: turn your vision into an app, learn about (and submit your app) the Marketplace…or continue learning using a bunch of hands-on labs and the tools to write applications in Silverlight and XNA

It seems like a pretty good deal and you should check them out.  Bringing your own laptop is encouraged and the tools are free!  Check out these opportunities in a city near you – aside form the 2-day events there also looks to be some 1-day sessions as well in some areas.  Check out all the details at http://www.msdnevents.com/wp7 and register for a location near you!

9/28/2010 4:25 AM | # Manchester UK event - 7th October 2010
see http://www.developerdeveloperdeveloper.com/wp71/

"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.

This event is all about Windows Phone 7. One day of demo-rich presentations where you can learn about developing Silverlight and XNA apps for Windows Phone. Come along and get ready to share in the excitement of the launch of this brand new phone platform.

We’ll have a keynote from a Microsoft UK speaker, and then the rest of the day you’ll hear from speakers and MVPs from Appa Mundi and the .NET developer community including some of the top-rated speakers from Tech Ed! We will have some of the Microsoft UK Developer Team on hand to help out and chat to attendees."

The development story for Windows Phone 7 (Silverlight and XNA) was announced at MIX10 in Las Vegas in March. This 5 1/2 hour event provides you with an opportunity to learn from trainers that were there. The event will cover what you need to know to be successful in developing Windows Phone 7 applications. It will cover APIs, workflow, the Metro design, back-end (Azure) cloud services and the new marketplace that will enable developers to get paid. If you are planning on releasing an application around launch later this year then this event will put you on the inside track.

I love the thought of a 2 evening practicing for those that need to develop software that run around the Windows Cell phone Several. Just like in the matter of the particular Silverlight designers, there are numerous more applications programmers who would offer much more which means to the Glass windows Phone Several. You understand how it is, the glass windows platform is actually not that helpful unless of course it provides a room for you to design the products that will satisfy user wants. I do believe House windows Cell phone 6 should reduce a distinct segment being an open up system that permits more design function. Recently i read about the developments of Silver light e-book ledge as well as belief that it was actually outstanding. But a majority of people who need to produce these kinds of applications might possibly not have depth understand programming. This is the reason I love the idea of instruction that might enhance a beginner directly into some type of a professional developing applications for sale. With your points during the economic depression, which might be just what we have to produce work. I ponder just how may well individuals was able to attend the 1st coaching and how containing revolution his or her utility regarding Windows Cell phone 6. Personalized Wedding Favors

This training by MSDN team for the apps will achieve several things for different people. But one thing is set to be achieved by almost everyone, is taking off the confusion that most buyers have whenever they are faced with a choice in buying Windows Phone 7. I realize that most users of this platform really do underestimate the capacity within it for development of user specific apps. I like the part that you clarify about the potential to tap into the XAML skills and develop apps that will catapult one to market fame. After all, it is such fame that will matter in the career development path. Therefore I believe that the two day training is really a good opportunity to turn a novice to some pro. Anyone thinking of making the most from Windows Phone 7 should take the appointment. Make sure you are in the training so that you have no regrets when you loose business opportunities.

This is a great opportunity for developers to capitalize on the Windows Phone 7 app market. There will always be a demand for a large variety of apps.

While I think that Microsoft is shooting themselves in the foot by not releasing WP7 on CDMA networks this year (such as Sprint, meaning no new phone for me personally), these two free developer training events in Dallas sound interesting:Varmepumper
