About this Event


FREE Training - App Development for Windows Phone!

We’re having a FREE day of training for Windows Phone Development on October 11, 2013.  From 8am to 5pm you’ll learn what it takes to get started, what’s needed for success, what pitfalls to avoid, and what opportunities are available to you.  Whether you’re a hobbyist or a seasoned developer, whether you’ve already published apps or are looking to build your first one, what you will learn is guaranteed to inspire.

Why should you attend?

In the past we’ve targeted these events to entry level developers, those with no experience with Windows Phone. While these events still cater to developers unfamiliar with the platform, they also quickly ramp up addressing topics that are of more worth to the seasoned developer and those already familiar in building apps for Windows Phone.  We can’t cover everything, there’s simply too much for one day, but if you’re looking for a reason to get excited again then these events will help re-ignite that fire and passion.

Let’s be clear, you still need to do the work of designing and creating your apps and games.  Success ultimately depends on you.  Consider how many personal projects you’ve started in the past and have yet to finish.  What’s missing is the motivation, and that’s something we can help you with.

Topics covered:

  • Windows Phone – the current opportunity
  • Nokia DVLUP – What you need to know
  • 0-60mph - Building your first app
  • Windows Phone in the Enterprise – Building a Company Hub
  • Windows Azure Mobile Services
  • Cross-platform App Development
  • Game Development using Cocos2D-XNA and Xamarin
  • Game Development using Unity3D
  • Monetization Strategies


  •   8:00am – Registration
  •   8:30am – Sessions
  • 12:30pm – Lunch
  •   1:30pm – Sessions
  •   4:30pm – Wrap-up / Giveaways
  •   5:00pm – Done


During the event each attendee with a Windows Phone will be able to get it unlocked for development.  Each attendee will also get a FREE license of NetAdvantage for Windows Phone (controls by Infragistics).

We’ll also be giving away a Nokia Lumia 920, and a license for NetAdvantage Ultimate.
