We’ve taken five (5) of the best Hands-on Labs from MEDC 2006 and made them Virtual Labs. These are basically Hands-on Labs that are available for anyone via a Web Browser. They can download the Lab Manuals and walk through the entire lab at their own pace and as many times as they wish, providing another source of training and hands-on experience for developing Windows Mobile based applications.
Here’s the landing page for the Windows Mobile Virtual Labs.
Unfortunately for one small error, we managed to upload only 4, the other lab will be uploaded in about a week after we've corrected that issue. Here's the list of labs :
