Here's a requested reblog for Dave Bost ( http://www.davebost.com/blog ) aka Thirsty Developer. Ya'll know I don't write prose this pretty! If you're around Dallas or Chicago here's a great opportunity for same Deep Dive Windows Phone help. And make Dave buy you a beer, tell him DevFish sent ya'. Course if you're looking for the East Coast version I'd suggest our Windows Phone Garages being run in May, along with a Pensacola Community Phone Garage in June ( http://blogs.msdn.com/b/devfish/archive/2011/04/19/windows-phone-garage-ii-live-tampa-nyc-cambridge-atlanta-charlotte-malvern-dc-may-2011.aspx).

Do you have the next million dollar idea that you just can’t find the time to finish? Do you already have an app for Android and iPhone that you want to expand into new markets?
It’s time to turn your napkin sketches and leverage your hard work into real, sellable apps for Windows Phone in ONE WEEK!
The Central Region Evangelism team at Microsoft is hosting a week-long Windows Phone Accelerator Lab in Dallas (week of May 9th) and Chicago (week of May 16th). The purpose of the lab is to provide technical and design assistance to developers who are currently building Windows Phone apps and who need a little extra help in getting their apps into the Marketplace.
The event is a no-fee event (plan your own travel expenses) and all developers are eligible. Seating is limited and registration is not guaranteed. Priority registration will be based on:
- Apps currently in development with a plan to completion by May 31st
- Developers who have apps on other platforms that are looking for assistance to port over to Windows Phone 7
- Someone who has a great idea and needs help in getting their project kicked off
- Application must be ready to submit to Marketplace by May 31st.
During these labs, you will be provided a working space, access to technical experts, access to phones to test your app on and access to all the caffeine you can consume! There will be a few other surprises thrown in for good measure as well! Register now!
