Windows phone 7 Acceleration Events in Sydney/Melbourne/Perth


Windows phone 7 Acceleration - Briefing Invitation



Join us to attend one of three Windows Phone acceleration events. Nick Randolph from Built To Roam once again will be sharing his wealth of knowledge of the Phone 7 platform.


This time around we’re hitting Sydney, Melbourne and Perth with a two day event that will give you the skills (training on day 1) and advice (application workshop on day 2) in order to build your first (or second, third….) Windows Phone 7 application and get it into Marketplace.


Attendee Prerequisites

.NET development skills, Visual Studio or Expression Blend skills, XNA development skills (optional)


Agenda Topics

Day 1: Windows Phone 7 Developer Training

Session 1: Introduction and Windows Phone User Experience Overview

Session 2: Animation, Orientation and Overlays

Session 3: Application Lifecycle, Navigation, Application Tiles and Notification

Session 4: Tasks and Touch

Session 5: Working with the Accelerometer, Sounds and Location

Session 6: Connecting and Consuming the Web


Day 2: Windows Phone 7 Application Workshop

Phase 1: Present your application – 5 minute elevator pitch* with or without demo.

Phase 2: Workshop/Develop your application

Tips & Tricks: As many little bits and pieces Nick can cram into an hour

Phase 3: Continue working on your application

Phase 4: Round up – summarize what you got done and what still needs to be done to get your application into Marketplace**.


Day 1 is designed to equip you with the fundamentals of building a Windows Phone 7 application. With these new found skills, Day 2 is designed to jump start your application development process. Whether you're just starting your first application, wanting some assistance getting your application ready for Marketplace submission or help troubleshooting some issues, the application workshop is where you should be. During the day Nick will spend time reviewing your application, suggesting areas for improvement and help you resolve any challenges you might have encountered.


* This isn't a traditional presentation - Nick will spend a few minutes with you going through your application idea. 0 stress! Just walk through what the idea entails, what you think will make it a rockin' app and perhaps the areas that you think you'll need/want some help with.


** For applications ready to submit to Marketplace there are a number of Marketplace tokens available
