Developer Launch




Not able to attend the Windows® Phone 7 Firestarters? No problem!  We are going to take all of the great content, expand it a bit , and cover the RTM bits updates like the new Pivot and Panoramic controls.  We will also be breaking out the hands on Phone Garage event into a second day allowing you more time with devices and a Windows Phone 7 expert.

Announcing the official Windows Phone 7 Developer Launch!

Windows Phone 7 is here – and with it comes a new world of opportunity for passionate, creative developers. Windows Phone 7 gives you the power to build complex, robust applications using consistent hardware specs, a comprehensive development toolkit, and the all-new, full-service Marketplace for selling your apps. Get ready to capitalize on this exciting new frontier with two days of fast-paced learning and Windows Phone 7 development sessions. Pick the day that best fits your needs – or join us for both. Either way, you'll get the information you need to build high-demand apps with Windows Phone 7.

Day 1: Jump-Start Your Mobile Development
| 9:00am - 5:00pm
In the first of this two-day launch event, we'll take you under the hood of Windows Phone 7 and the Windows Phone 7 platform with a progressive set of learning sessions. We'll start with the basic tools and fundamentals of Windows Phone 7 application development and as the day unfolds, we'll go deeper into development scenarios using Silverlight®, XNA® and the Windows Phone 7 SDK. You'll also see how to earn cash for your apps in the fully loaded Marketplace.

Day 2: Unleash Your Best App Workshop | 10:00am - 3:00pm
This hands-on workshop is designed to help you turn those napkin sketches and subway scribbles into real, sellable apps. You'll apply fundamental Windows Phone 7 design principles to build an app and upload it to the fully revamped Marketplace. Go at your own pace or follow along with a proctored group lab. Either way, you'll get step-by-step advice from Microsoft® and community experts. It's an unprecedented opportunity to stake your claim in the marketplace – using familiar tools and consistent specs.

I will be at both the New York and Philadelphia launches.
