Windows Phone 7 Two-Day Developer Sessions Announced

Are you a developer considering a go at Windows Phone 7? My guess is if you are, you’re already on the ball, but maybe you are on the fence. Windows Phone 7 is showing some great promise and there are a ton of great looking apps being shown already. I am a firm believer that Microsoft needs to hit it big with devs to appeal to the masses. Despite what some studies say, apps are a huge part of the success of the iPhone. If you are considering developing for Windows Phone, check out the cities listed below to see if one is near you.

Microsoft is holding a plethora of Two-Day developer events all over the country. Chances are that one is near you!

The first day covers application development, with a heavy focus on the design language of Windows Phone 7.  You will learn about how to make amazing and incredible applications, and deliver experiences on Windows Phone which are not available on other phone platforms.  The second day is an app-building workshop.  There will be plenty of resources on hand to help you get your idea from your brain to the phone.  Be sure to check out the agendas for the events.
