Following the great success of our last Windows Azure BizSpark Camp held in Sydney in April, we are very happy to announce the 2 upcoming BizSpark Camp events being hosted in June:
Sydney: Windows 7 Modern Applications
Melbourne: Windows Phone 7
Based on the feedback from the previous BizSpark camp, we have made some changes. The main one being breaking what was held as a 2 day intensive single event, into 3 distinct separate events, run over 2 weeks.
Each of these BizSpark Camps Series consists of 3 separate events.
This is a free event (plan your own travel expenses) and the content is technical, targeted towards Developers & Programmers
It is IMPORTANT to note that due to limited time & resources, participation in the 2-3 Day Guided Proof of Concept development event is by invitation only, based on your attendance & demonstrated interest in both the half day event, and the Hands on Lab.
See more details on both events below:
Join us at the Windows 7 Modern Applications BizSpark Camp on 14, June 2010. Get an overview on how to design and incorporate key new features of Windows 7 in your applications; giving them a modern twist while incorporating resources like multi-touch interface, ribbon menus, task bar integration, external sensors like gps, WiFi Location services, accelerometers, and other features. This half day event will be hosted at the Microsoft Sydney Office in North Ryde.
The Event will be followed by a hands on lab event on the 25th of June at the Microsoft Training Labs in the North Ryde office. Both of these events will feature MVP & BizSpark Network Partner James McCutcheon of Foundry38.
If these two events inspire you further, and you think you have what it takes to build a Proof of concept around your Windows 7 Modern Application idea, you will be invited to participate in a three day intensive Proof Of Concept development program which includes Technical & Business experts on hand to help guide your development. This is also being held at the Microsoft Office on 28th, 29th, and 30th June 2010. On hand to help with your development will be Dr Neil Roodyn, Microsoft Regional Director & MVP.
