Windows Phone/Windows 8 App Dev Study Group

Join us on March 7, 2013 at the Agile Thought office at 4PM for the kick off meeting for a new Study Group that is forming to build a Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 application to serve the Florida Windows App developer community.

To signup for this please visit the new Tampa Windows Developer MeetUp group.

In the past we’ve created a Windows Phone 7 application where users can upload information about their apps to help publicize their what they are working on.  As part of this study group, we are going to start from scratch and build new versions for Windows Phone, Windows 8 using Azure Mobile Services.
You don’t need a lot of experience building Windows 8 or Windows Phone apps, but a background in building XAML based applications would be helpful.  You will however need Visual Studio 2012 and the Windows Phone 8 tools.

We probably won’t have enough time to finish the app over the course of the initial event but as part of the discussion we’ll figure out if we will do additional in-person meetings or try to complete this offline.
The technologies we will be using in this study group:
- Visual Studio 2012
- Windows Phone 8
- Windows 8
- C#
- Cloud Technology
- Azure Mobile Services
- Team Foundation Server
- Push Notifications
