Windows Phone Dev Day - Cambridge, MA

Jump-Start Your App, or Pass the Final Stretch

If you are a developer that is trying to finish up your app, and get it into the store, or if you are looking to start your very first app, Nokia wants to help.  In just over a week, on February 1st, they will be hosting an event at the Microsoft offices in Cambridge, MA.  There will be training, food and prizes, and while seats are limited, here is what you can look forward to:

  • 12 PM DevCenter Submission Walkthrough (30 minutes): See just how easy it is to submit and publish an app worldwide
  • 12:30 PM Build an app in 30 minutes with App Studio (30 minutes): See how to build an app from an idea to publishable in 30 minutes, literally.
  • 1 PM - 1:30 PM Lunch: I’ll be providing food and snacks. This is when you think about what you need help with or when you should think of your app idea for App Studio.
  • 1:30-6 PM Hands-on time: The experts will be available to help during this time. They will be walking around helping and/or attending to requests for help.

Focus Can be the Most Important Part

While having plenty of Windows Phone experts around to answer questions, walk through the submission process, and demonstrate App Studio can be helpful, the most useful part of the day will quite possibly be the dedicated time to work on your app.  Having a solid block of time to work on your app without distraction is extremely valuable, and can really help you crank through your to-do list, especially when there are people that can help your through any road-blocks that normally might slow you down.

Links and Stuff

If you are interested in going, the link to signup is below:

Here is also a post from Lance McCarthy (the guy running the show) going into a little more detail.

I will be there helping out, and would love to see lots of people from the area show up, but as I said, seats are limited, so please don’t register unless you are sure you can make it.
