Windows Phone App Event in Eindhoven

Written by Tom Verhoeff on. Posted in MSP, WP7


Two days ago the biggest Windows Phone 7 developer event to date in the Netherlands took place. With the official launch of WP7 in our country and the recent addition of Nokia phones to the line-up developer interest is rising. A total of about 300 attendees showed up for a full day of sessions including a basic introduction the dev platform and tools, more advanced topics like push notification and fast application switching and a session on app monetization. The sessions where presented by Maarten Struys, Fons Sonnemans and myself. A big thank you goes out to Microsoft’s Matthijs Hoekstra, the Dutch WP7dev evangelist, who organized the event at the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven.

Here’s the full program for the day:
