Event Details

 

Wavefront and Microsoft are pleased to present a hands-on WaveGuide code camp for developers that will help you build your app and get you prepared to submit it to the Windows Phone Marketplace. With an application ecosystem that is continuing to not only grow, but accelerate in growth, now is the time to port your existing apps to Windows Phone and build new apps for the platform as well.  In January, the Windows Phone Marketplace hit the 50,000 app/game milestone in just over a year, the fastest mobile platform to reach that mark. 

The workshop will start off with a presentation that goes over the basic principles of building an app and how you submit it to the Marketplace.  The intent of this presentation is to provide an overview of what you as a mobile developer can expect throughout the experience of building a Windows Phone 7.5 application.  After the presentation, you will be able to begin building your own Windows Phone apps with support from Windows Phone experts and proctors who will answer questions that you may have.  We will also have mini-lessons in regular intervals throughout the day to help you learn some of the deeper concepts of Windows Phone development.  Attendees can choose to listen to these lessons or continue building the apps they started.

In order to participate in the workshop, you will need your own PC running either Windows 7 or Windows Vista.  You must download the free developer tools ahead of time so you can hit the ground running rather than spend time during the workshop installing the tools. 

Register by March 9 and your name will be entered in the early bird prize draw to win 1 of 2 Windows phones! At the event, you will be able to get hands-on with Windows Phone demo devices and enter for a chance to win your own!

Who should attend?

  • Developers with an iOS or Android app ready to port to Windows Phone
  • Experienced developers wanting to learn more about the opportunity and looking to build Windows Phone applications

Reasons to develop apps for Windows Phone:

  • Showcase your apps that may be buried or lost in other saturated Marketplaces
  • Increase your reach to a new audience of early adopters looking for great apps
  • Windows Phone developers are well supported and rewarded, check out http://www.developermovement.com/ for details
