Tonight (August 17, 2010) I’ll be doing a little talk about about a hot technology you might have heard of called Windows Phone 7.
The first part of the talk will be dedicated to a quick overview of development for Windows Phone 7. We won’t dwell on C# or Silverlight but will build three little applications that should give an overview of the development environment for Windows Phone:
- W.O.P.R. – Slightly more exciting than “Hello World”
- KLIK2WIN – Very simple silverlight game
- John’s Game – Well you’ll have to attend to see what this one is about
The file for my presentation include both a step-by-step lab and the completed working applications. You can download the files from here.
The second part of the talk should be a lot of fun, John asked that the user group members come up with Windows Phone 7 applications. The group will then vote on the best app and we’ll talk about what it would take to implement it and start building the application frameworks. We certainly won’t have time to finish the application but should be able to get an idea of what would be involved.
Hope to see you all there!
