Calling All Phone Developers: Free Training on Windows Phone 7

Calling All Phone Developers: Free Training on Windows Phone 7

Bob Caswell (Microsoft)

Today the Windows Phone team announced the availability of the Windows Phone Developer Tools Beta. We here at Born To Learn wanted to highlight the best part of this announcement (well, in our opinion):

Get Trained for FREE – Windows Phone 7 Jump Start

Windows Phone 7 Jump Start is a FREE virtual live class for developers interested in developing applications and games for Windows Phone 7.  The course is organized into four virtual instructor-led sessions that are of 3-hour duration.  They will be presented by forthcoming MS Press authors and MVP's, Andy Wigley and Rob Miles. It will provide developers a jump start for developing Windows Phone 7 applications.  The labs will be completed offline with office hours access to the instructors.

The dates for these course sessions are:

  • July 20 – 8am (PST): Session One: Getting Started with Microsoft Windows Phone and Silverlight
  • July 20 – 1pm (PST): Session Two: Programming Game Applications with XNA
  • July 22 – 8am (PST): Session Three:  Programming Applications with Silverlight
  • July 22 – 1pm (PST): Session Four:  Review and Wrap Up

Space is limited, so go register for the course now

*Update* Registrations are back open for Session 3 and Session 4. Here are the revised titles of the sessions:

  • July 22 – 8am (PST): Session Three:  Advanced Windows Phone Development
  • July 22 – 1pm (PST): Session Four:  Selling Your Windows Phone Solutions & Wrap Up

    Hi Paul,

    Understandable. We'll get you the training in a nice, consumable format sometime after the live event. Stay tuned.

    Hi,

    As a teacher (from Belgium) I found the Session 1 and 2 very interesting and practical (despite the late starthour of session 2), because I learned some new stuff about Silverlight and XNA and a little C#. I will make a reference to the site and blog on the ELO of my school.

    I look forward to the sessions 3 & 4.

    (Sorry for the bad English, but I'm Dutch speaking)

    Seriously, you couldn't have done this much worse. I have only watched the first 5 videos now (on channel9)... and you have failed almost everything you possibly could at the moment. Didn't you review the videos before you published them? Unfortunately this topic is very interesting, so ill keep scanning and hoping for something good.
