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!
