Wavefront & Microsoft Present – Windows Phone 8 WaveGuide Code Camp

Nov 27, 2012 8:30 am to 5:00 pm

Rostie Group, WaterPark Place
20 Bay St, 12th Floor, Rainy Lake Room,
Toronto, ON

Calling all developers and designers! Wavefront and Microsoft are back with hands-on coding workshops  to introduce you to Windows Phone 8, to support your app building and get you prepared to submit  to the Windows Phone Store. We have listened to the feedback received at previous workshops and will address key areas of interest, like gaming and design.

The momentum for the Windows Phone platform is strong – in just over a year and a half the store has grown to well over 100,000 apps and games.  Now is the time to port your existing apps, as well as build new apps for this rapidly growing platform.  The workshop will take you through the basic principles of building the latest Windows Phone app, with an overview of what you can expect throughout this process.

After this session, you will have the opportunity to start building your own Windows Phone apps with support from Windows Phone experts and proctors who will be on hand to answer questions.  We will also have a series of mini-lessons throughout the day to introduce you to some of the deeper concepts of Windows Phone development. The choice is yours – you can join  the lessons or continue building your app.

Please note: you will need your own PC running either Windows 8, Windows 7 or Windows Vista to participate in the workshop, and you will need to download the free developer tools ahead of time.

Who should attend?

  • Developers with an iOS or Android app ready to port to Windows Phone
  • Experienced developers wanting to learn more about the Windows Phone opportunity
  • Past attendees who will benefit from new content as well as a deeper dive into past topics

Why develop apps for Windows Phone?
