Loyal readers know that I’m enthusiastic about the Windows Phone developer story, so here are some events to help you get started with Phone 7. You can register here: www.msdnevents.com/wp7.

Windows Phone 7 Developer Launch event locations.

The official word:

Windows Phone 7 offers a new world of opportunity for passionate, creative developers. Get ready to capitalize on this exciting new frontier with two days of fast-paced learning. Day One takes you under the hood of Windows Phone 7 with the tools and fundamentals of application development, plus design scenarios using Silverlight, XNA and the Windows Phone 7 SDK. Day Two is all about turning your napkin sketches into real, sellable apps. Go at your own pace or follow along with proctored group labs to build your app and upload it to the full-service Marketplace. Check your calendar and pick the day that works best for you – or join us for both days. Either way, you’ll get all the information you need to build high-demand apps with Windows Phone 7.
