The first installment of the new series of Windows Phone Camp (powered by UK Tech.Days) took place in London and Manchester in September. We have met and talked to developers and IT professionals from a diverse range of backgrounds who learnt the basics to Windows Phone development. Registration will open very shortly for the next series of the Windows Phone Camp which will be held in London and Edinburgh in November. In the meantime, here are some snapshots from the camp as well as important resources and links from the tutorial part of the day.
