Event Details

What is the Windows Phone Dev Camp?  

With Windows Phone adoption rising quickly in the UK, the Windows Phone Dev Camps are events which will provide an introduction to the Windows Phone platform for developers who are hearing a lot about Windows Phone but perhaps haven’t built their first application yet. 

We’ll have a number of short, snappy sessions to introduce the phone devices and development platform and tools and the major things that you need to know about in developing for Windows Phone – we’ll talk about storage, networking, user experience, and working with the core Phone functionality like using the camera, sensors, mapping and so on. 

We’ll also have hands-on labs so if you prefer to take a hands-on approach there’ll be some labs that you can work through and someone there to help you along if you get stuck.

Spaces are limited, so register your place in the Windows Phone Dev Camp today! 

What will be covered at the Windows Phone Dev Camp?  

The day kicks off with welcome & coffee followed by a “design” and user experience session for all attendees. In the main area, presentations run with many demos to walk through the key features of application development and app submission to the store. In side rooms and workspace areas, attendees can choose to run through any of a selection of hands-on labs, with assistance if required from proctors. The day is rounded off with a short wrap-up, awarding of spot prizes and a chance for immediate feedback.
