Windows Phone 7 Workshop

March 24, 2011

After the early announcement by Simon May at Microsoft on these events, I was quick to register for the Windows 7 Workshop at Birmingham, but there are also further events in London an Manchester in the subsequent weeks.

Basically it is a series of workshops sponsored by APPA Mundi and Microsoft to assist you in making WP7 applications, tested, polished and successfully submitted to the Windows Marketplace, with 1 to 1 tuition, tips or advice. Feel free to share this blog, and join in groups to come up with wonderful ideas for apps as you may be given a prize for that.

There will be plenty of learning on sessions and tutorials like tombstoning, databinding, startup performance, animations in Express Blend, and so forth.

Places are strictly up to 50 developers, so it is in high demand.

It runs from 9am to 9pm with free lunch.


So come along if:

  • You have a great idea for an app and need help getting started
  • You’re building an app but need help on implementing some features
  • You have an app that’s nearly ready and need advice on how to get it through the Marketplace submission process
  • You want to learn from, or assist, other WP7 devs
  • You want to contribute to the creation of open source libraries, demo/starter apps or components

We’ll also be providing prizes at each event:

  • A Samsung Omnia Windows Phone 7 Device
  • An Xbox and Kinect Console
  • Software Licenses

Prizes will be awarded for the best app ideas, for the best app created during the event, the most improved app and there’ll also be random prizes.

Current dates and locations are as follows (click to register):

Saturday 26/3 – Birmingham

Saturday 2/4 – London
