Hello All,
I am sure you have heard that Microsoft is releasing a new mobile phone operating system called Windows Phone 7.  Well, did you know that if you know how to develop in Silverlightusing Blend and Visual Studio then you already know how to develop Windows Phone 7Applications?  Well you do and Microsoft is holding a few awesome events to show you how.  And I will be presenting at one of those sessions!
I will be holding Session 3: Supercharge Your Windows Phone 7 Apps with Microsoft Silverlight at the Sept. 29-30 (FYI: my session is on the 29th) event in Orange County, CA!  In this session I am going to show how to build Windows Phone 7 applications with Silverlight.  More specifically I will show the following:
1. The Blend Integrated Development Environment: Panels, the Toolbar, Design v Animation views, the Timeline, built-in controls such as the ListBox and Button controls, Content controls such as the Grid and Canvas and much more;
2. How to take everything you have learned and build a WP7 application with a custom, reusable UserControl.
If you would like to attend this totally FREE and awesome two-day event in Orange County, CA you can do so here:
