Windows Phone Garage

Better late than never, but I just learned that this event is taking place TOMORROW, May 26th at the Microsoft Washington Office in Chevy Chase, MD and Microsoft Tampa Office in Tampa, FL.  If you can, try to join us for this full day of Windows Phone 7 “learn and build” hands-on sessions and open lab.  Bring your application ideas and our onsite experts will help you turn them into reality and walk away with a completed project.

We even have a few Windows Phone Marketplace subscriptions to give away – the closer you are to deploying at the end of the day the better your chances!

Due to the classroom style of this event seating is limited, so register now.
