Windows Phone Camp - Edge Hill University
Wednesday, May 16, 2012 from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM (BST)
Lancashire, United Kingdom
Microsoft is coming to Edge Hill Uni on Wednesday the 16th May! We want to give you the chance to develop your own phone app to be published on the Windows Phone Marketplace!
Windows Phones really are the next big thing in smartphone technology, and there is no better chance than now to get your apps developed. If you haven’t created or published a Windows Phone app before then we are providing you with all the guidance and software you need, for free.
Firstly, you'll need to watch our step by step video on how to prepare for the event here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nlka36emPYE
Please follow the steps on the video before the day of the event! As mentioned, the tools are all on www.dreamspark.com . Just click on the Windows Phone icon and get downloading by selecting your uni! You’ll get the same tools as professional developers and designers, but without the costs. Once published, you’ll even be able to make money from your apps.
The event will run from 1-5pm, starting in the HUB at the 1st floor screen area, and then moving into labs CMIST1 and CMIST4 which are located in CMIST building. It will involve presentations to guide you through:
- Windows Phone API
- Visual Studio
- App templates
- Windows Phone Marketplace
The second half of the Phone Camp will involve a coding session in your labs for you to get stuck in. If you impress us (which I’m sure you will!), we'll be ordering takeaway pizza for you at the end. There are also 3 Nokia Lumia phones to be won for those of you who are building apps!
Spaces are limited so sign up soon,
We look forward to seeing you there!
