Wow, what a whirlwind of activity has been going on getting ready for the launch of Windows Phone 7! But before the first devices roll out of the manufacturers and carriers stores and into peoples’ pockets, the Marketplace needs to be ready. So we have been focusing on getting developers around the world excited about this new platform, and ensuring they have the tools and resources they need to realize their vision for the next big app or game for Windows Phone 7.
The last of the big events is almost here. Join us in downtown Atlanta at the World Congress Center for 2 days of immersive WP7 developer fun. Day 1 is filled with great sessions on the new phone platform, design guidelines, how the marketplace will work, and how to build apps with Silverlight and XNA. Then on day 2, come start putting your dream into action (sorry, Howard Jones) or polishing up your masterpiece for the marketplace. We’ll also have an area for you to play with the phones in person. And did we mention you can win a copy of Halo Reach, an Xbox console, or even a Windows Phone 7 device just for attending?
