In preparation for our upcoming app porting webcasts in May and June we would like to offer this overview so that you, the iPhone and Android developer who has built government solutions for those platforms, can familiarize yourself with what resources are available. In May and June we will get down to the mechanics of actually porting your apps. For those of you interested in just building for Windows Phone we will include information on readily available open data sources that you can use to build your new WP Apps against. In the meantime, feel free to download the Windows Phone specific resources below. Look carefully, there are really good resources there!

Presenter: Joel Reyes, Senior Developer Evangelist, Microsoft
Back in the days as a GW-Basic-Kid (GBK), it never crossed my mind the possibility of working for the very company that inspired me to pursue a career in systems engineering and computer science… And here I am! RIT, Xerox and now Microsoft have had the most profound impact in my professional life which has always been Software. From developer, project manager, people manager, then consulting and now evangelism, I have enjoyed seeing the impact of software in the life of corporations as well as individuals. Today I have the privilege of working in helping make our Local Governments more efficient and more connected with the people. Privately, I enjoy family life, computers and direct involvement in my community to make a difference of those less fortunate. So the journey goes on…You can follow my blog at http://joelcitizen.com/.
