In addition to TechDays 2010 I’ll also be doing a session geared towards students interested in building apps for Windows Phone 7 with Microsoft Canada’s DPE team. In 45mins, we’ll go through building an app end to end and how to leverage the developer tools such as Visual Studio Express for Windows Phone 7 and Expression Blend.
Did you know as a student you can join the DreamSpark program to get access to all the developer tools for free! Best of all, if you are developing for Windows Phone 7 you will get a free Marketplace account to be able to publish and sell your mobile apps! Definitely something to check out and something I wish was available when I was in school!
Anyway here are the details for Go DevMENTAL
Go DevMENTAL is Microsoft’s free academic tour designed to teach you coding for the coolest apps and platforms, connect you with the industry, and help you pursue your career aspirations. It’s also a great chance to have a fun evening out with friends!
