WinMoDevCamp, the worldwide series of development workshops for Windows-based mobile phones, is coming to Toronto on Wednesday, November 11th! If you want to learn how to develop applications for Windows Phone (the mobile operating system formerly known as Windows Mobile), this full-day workshop will give you the opportunity to get some hands-on training and experience. We’ll have all kinds of people speaking and attending, including:
- Mobile developers
- Web developers
- .NET developers
- UI/WX specialists
- Software testers
- Device manufacturers
- Canadian mobile carriers
…all at this workshop, all working – either solo or in teams – on a Windows Phone project. (While you can choose to work solo, you’ll miss out on the brainpower, business and social opportunities that teaming up will provide).
At the event, you will:
- Create a new application for the Windows Phone platform and mobile apps that support Windows enterprise applications
- Meet and work side-by-side team members from the Microsoft Mobile Developer Experience team
- Get help porting your existing iPhone, BlackBerry and Palm Pre apps to the Windows platform
- Interact with reps from a number of Canadian mobile carriers, including Bell, Telus, Rogers and WIND
This free event will take place on Wednesday, November 11th at Microsoft Canada’s headquarters in Mississauga (1950 Meadowvale Boulevard, just off Mississauga Road north of the 401) from 1:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.. We’ll serve snacks and dinner, so you won’t starve while you create mobile apps. And yes, I’ll be there, helping out and even writing code.
If you’d like to attend WinMoDevCamp Toronto, all you have to do is register! (And if you need a lift out to Mississauga, drop me a line and I can give you a lift from High Park subway station to Microsoft and back.)
