Windows PhoneCamps

From MSDN events, to roadshows, to firestarters …

Now on to Camps … and just got word about the upcoming Windows Phone camps…


What’s a Windows Phone Camp?

For those who went to our "Windows Phone Garage" series last year, its one of those. For those new to the scene, its a free, full day event chocked full of everything you need to know to develop a Windows Phone application. Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or just getting started with phone app development this full-day event is for you.

Interested in profit? We’ll also lead discussions on how to monetize your applications and generate profits with your apps.

Don’t miss the new Windows Phone 7.5 (codename "Mango") features as well - with detailed sessions in the afternoon around Fast Application Switching, Multitasking, Live Tiles, Push Notifications, and more.

The day will be capped with an open lab hands-on session and prizes for apps completed. This is the perfect opportunity to begin work on your dream application, or finish that app you’ve already started, with Windows Phone experts there to guide you every step of the way. Bring your own laptop to join in the fun and show off your killer app!

Not only is the content great, but we've got a ton of locations coming up. Note that we are not only hitting the traditional Microsoft facilities, we are hitting a ton of campus locations as well. Students can attend Microsoft facilitiy events, and professionals / entrepreneurs are more than welcome to drop in on the on-campus locations as well. Mix, mingle, network.

I'm signed up for the Raleigh camp and got an email about a time change for the camp to run from 2pm to 9pm instead of 9am to 5pm. Can you confirm if that is a real change or did someone get their timezones confused?

Hi Blaise --

Actually the time is correct (2pm-9pm) -- the team decided to push some of the events to later in the day.
