What to expect at the upcoming UK Windows Phone Camps?
If you are the few lucky ones who have scored a seat, here is a quick preview of what is in store for you!
Registration kicks off at 8:30am so you can make your way to the venue as we will start promptly at 9am. After a brief introduction to the day, we will encourage everyone to join a session focused on design and user journey for Windows Phone. The design of an app is often overlooked so we hope to provide you with the fundamentals to not only design for Windows Phone but design in general so you can better navigate your way to an app that delivers a fantastic user experience.
Then, the camp opens up to two zones. The first one is the open workshop zone where you can learn and work at your own pace with guided help from our trainers from Appamundi. You can also meet other windows phone developers and find out what they are up to. The second one is the tutorial zone where a number of short tutorial sessions can be requested on-demand throughout the day which will also be delivered by the trainers from Appamundi. You are encouraged to make the most of both zones and choose what you want to do as the day progresses. Whether you are completely new to Windows Phone or you have a few questions around getting started, you can get what you need in one of the two zones.
Of course, we will have snacks and drinks throughout the day to keep you energised.
