A couple of weeks back (Sept 16 2010) I presented a two part session on developing for Windows Phone 7 using Silverlight at FITC Mobile 2010. The session went very well and was extremely well received. Here is a picture snapped up by Joey DeVilla
Windows Mobile has always been the odd platform at FITC but it’s always great to present to a non-Microsoft centric crowd and get honest ‘raw’ feedback. Previous years it has been a challenge to convince people to adopt Windows Mobile as previously Windows Mobile did not have a great consumer story.
This year, that has changed! There was lot’s of excitement on Windows Phone 7 and Microsoft had a presence at the conference with a booth showing off WP7 and the developer tools that are available. Today I got my feedback from the attendees and the best one
And remember this is from a non-Microsoft centric crowd and the typical crowd was iPhone, Android, iPad and Blackberry developers. So to get a comment like that the Windows Phone team should be proud of what they are delivering and I’m proud to be a part of the ‘game’ and helping customers get onto the Windows Phone 7 platform!
Here are the rest of the raw comments (including bad)
Building Applications for Windows Phone 7 using Microsoft Silverlight (Part 1)
Was the speaker knowledgeable on the topic presented? = 8.95

Building Applications for Windows Phone 7 using Microsoft Silverlight (Part 2)
Was the speaker knowledgeable on the topic presented? = 8.88
Visual Studio is frustratingly convoluted.
