Event Details

Bob Tabor and Clint Rutkas team up to deliver this 11+ hour Windows Phone 8 Development for Absolute Beginners series!  Not only will you learn the absolute basics of installing and working with Visual Studio Express 2012 for Windows Phone and the Emulator, but you'll also learn XAML layout and events, how to utilize many of the Phone's built in features and additional open-source libraries.  Best of all, this series will walk you through building two complete store-worthy apps.  The first app you'll build is the SoundBoard app that allows you play pre-recorded sounds and record your own custom sounds.  The second app you'll build is the AroundMe app which integrates the Phone's Map, GPS and Lock Screen capabilities with Flickr's API.

Join SELA Canada’s App Expert Erez Harari for a virtual viewing party and TweetUp. As you watch the on-demand content throughout the day, tweet your questions with the #SELAMVA hashtag. Erez will be answering your questions, providing his opinions and guidance, as well as additional resources that can help get you up and running in no time.

Erez Harari (MCT & MCPD) specializes in both Server side and Client side technologies with in-depth knowledge of the Microsoft platform. He is the co-author of several of the Microsoft Official Courseware including:

* Essentials of Developing Windows Store Apps Using HTML5 and JavaScript
* Advanced Windows Store App Development Using C#
* Developing Windows Azure and Web Services


Though the event is completely FREE, by registering, you’ll receive a follow up email with additional resources to check out, and better yet, a voucher that you can redeem for points to add to your MVA transcript! Only registered participants will be eligible to receive the code.
