We have had an overwhelming response to the Windows Phone Camps, most of which are now fully booked. However, if you are still interested in attending these events this is what you need to do. All machines have now been reserved, you can however bring your own machine and take part in the camp. Seats will be limited but you will be able  to find a seat outside the lab and still be involved in the camp.

If you plan to come with your own machine we ask that you install the tools before the event and send an email to and let us know which day you will be attending. 

Join us at the Windows Phone Camp and ignite a career in mobile development. The Microsoft Academic Team is bringing a full day of training focused on turning students into the next Mobile Phone Champion. If you’ve been thinking about building applications for the Windows Phone this is an event for you. This camp is targeted at being hands on – less talk and more action.

Throughout the day long camp there is one main goal – give the students the know how to build an app and deploy it to the Market Place. We will cover the basics, food, food, energy drinks and killer demonstrations, all you need to do is come along, take in all the nuggets of knowledge from our demos, and start building some great applications.
