Keep track of all the latest news and events on developer tools and technologies you care about
What’s even better than a whole day’s event dedicated to Windows Phone 7? Perhaps the chance to leave said event with one of your very own? Join the DeveloperDeveloperDeveloper Community gang on 7th October in Manchester and along with a day of demo-rich presentations about developing Silverlight and XNA apps for Windows Phone, you’ll be able to enter a prize draw to win a Windows Phone to take home.
So what can you look forward to? Well, there’ll be a keynote from a Microsoft UK speaker and you’ll also hear from MVPs from Appa Mundi and the .NET developer community, including some of the top-rated speakers from Tech Ed. A few of the folks from the Microsoft UK Developer Team will be around to help out, too.
As if that wasn’t enough, we’re also holding a XAPathon. If you’ve already been working with the Windows Phone 7 developer tools but haven’t been able to try them out on a real phone yet, compile them with the RTM dev tools and bring along your XAP - we’ll be providing some real phones you can play with.
Check out the agenda and register now – we’re looking forward to a fantastic day and we’d love to see you there.
