On Saturday, August 13th I will be speaking at the Windows Azure and Windows Phone 7 Firestarter in Columbus, OH. The firestarter is an all day event designed to give developers a jumpstart on creating exciting Windows Phone 7 applications that leverage the power and flexibility of the Windows Azure platform.
If you’re a developer that is looking to get started with building a Windows Phone 7 application, then this is going to be a great FREE event for you. If all this talk about “going to the cloud” has you excited, or even a little confused, then this firestarter will help get you going in the right direction. The day will feature 4 sessions – 2 on Windows Phone 7 and 2 on Windows Azure. There will also have dedicated time set aside for you to work on labs to help you hone your skills and gain some valuable hands-on experience. After all, the best way to learn about a technology is to use it, right? If the labs aren’t your thing, then use the time to sling some code and create a great application. We’ll be around to help you!
At the firestarter I am honored to be joined by Microsoft evangelists Brian Prince and Jeff Blankenburg, as well as Windows Phone 7 expert Sam Basu. The firestarter will be held from 8:30am – 5:00pm at the Microsoft office in Columbus. Please visit http://wazwp7firestarter.eventbrite.com to sign up for this event.
See you there!
