Windows Phone 7 – Introductory Development Workshop

Are you interested to learn how to build applications for the new Windows Phone 7 platform? This introductory workshop is designed for those who are interested to jump on the market and produce Windows Phone 7 applications. The three hour workshop will provide you with the opportunity to learn from the trainers that attended MIX10 in Las Vegas. The workshop will cover APIs, workflow, the Metro design and the new marketplace that will enable developers to get paid. If you are planning on releasing an application around launch later this year then this workshop will put you on the inside track. The workshop will be led by Ben Gracewood (http://www.ben.geek.nz/about-ben/), Chris Klug (http://chris.59north.com) and Keith Patton (http://blog.keithpatton.com/default.aspx).
