Tonight, January 19th I’ll be rolling out a talk I’ve been working on for awhile now at the Sarasota .NET Developers Group.
In addition to doing an introduction to Windows Phone 7 what will sure to generate some heated discussions, I’ll be doing my WFA or Windows Phone 7 + Azure + Facebook = WFA talk.
Here’s the abstract:
I’m proposing a new TLA or three letter acronym, “WFA” or Work From Anywhere. The three ingredients, Windows Phone 7, Azure and Facebook provide you, the individual developer, the necessary components to create highly profitable, highly scalable applications that you can build, maintain and sell from anywhere.
All you need is a laptop, Visual Studio, a good idea, a great user experience and maybe a little bit of luck*. Come for one talk and get two for free! In this fast paced yet highly technical session, we will be building a Windows Phone 7 application that uses Facebook to authenticate and manage users and authentication with a Azure table storage, WCF based backend.
* The speaker makes no guarantees either verbal or implied that if you follow his easy 3 step plan, you will become instantly rich, popular, more attractive to the opposite sex or can retire at 23 - but you could!
