A Phone Camp is an all day event where you get to go hands on with Windows Phone 7.0 and 7.5, learning how to develop for the phone platform and build both applications and (I’m sure you won’t be surprised with my predilection for entertainment) games. I am joining a bunch of very smart people to run the days and I’m really excited about them.

I strongly encourage any student or faculty member who might be interested in mobile development to take advantage of these free training opportunities and get involved. Here’s all the official info:

   Fun, Free and For All

What's a Windows Phone Camp?

A free, full day event chock-full of everything you need to know to develop a Windows Phone application. Whether you're a seasoned veteran or just getting started with .NET development this full-day event is for you. Interested in profit? We'll also lead discussions on how to monetize your applications and generate profits with your apps.

Don't miss the new Windows Phone 7.5 (codename "Mango") features as well - with detailed sessions in the afternoon around Fast Application Switching, Multitasking, Live Tiles, Push Notifications, and more.

The day will be capped with an open lab hands-on session and prizes for apps completed. This is the perfect opportunity to begin work on your dream application, or finish that app you've already started, with Windows Phone experts there to guide you every step of the way. Bring your own laptop to join in the fun and show off your killer app!
