Thanks to all of the Universities who have updated their curricula to include Windows Phone.

For the past few month we have been running a number of Phone Camp across the UK and judging from all the questions and comments in relation to METRO there is clearly a lot of interest and passion around this topic from academics and students. 

So I thought I would share with you all a quick set of resources for Windows Phone Development.
