Whether you are a “code-for-fun” developer or a super skilled and experienced one, I believe the ‘Building Applications for Windows Phone Mango Jump Start’ camp may catch your interest. It is a two full-day event, held on August 23 and 24, 2011, instructed by Rob Miles and Andy Wigley (both Microsoft MVPs). As you correctly decoded, the event focuses on building applications and games for the new WP Mango Platform.
Day One starts with basics, such as development in Visual Studio 2010 and Silverlight on WP, and then the second half adds more light on the new Mango’s features: applications switching, multi-tasking or background tasks.
Day Two brings topics on app data storage, using networks or even how to connect Windows Azure with Windows Phone, all concluded by a topic on selling the apps.
