London Nokia Windows Phone Training

Heading for the Emirates Stadium.

Today we started what will be our last Nokia Training event for Windows Phone. This one was rather special though, being based at the Emirates Stadium, home of The Arsenal football team. As well as doing our training, a chance of a trip around the ground was in the offing.

They even had Arsenal branded WiFi access (this one has expired now…)

The Hallowed turf

Some of the delegates, more on Flickr. I’ll stitch a panorama when I get home, not got the software on the tiny laptop.


Free Beer in a football stadium, what could possibly go wrong…

We had some lively discussions and I hope everyone got something out of the day. In terms of resources I said I’d put up links to the content. Here we are:

You can get all the content, slide decks and more, from the Jumpstart web site here:

The ones you want are:

01 Mango Building Phone Apps
02 Mango Intro Silverlight
03 Mango Advanced Silverlight
05 Mango FastApp Switching
11 Mango XNA Winphone
12 Mango Selling applications

There are also other decks and samples you might find interesting. If you want to watch videos of Andy and myself delivering this content (and who wouldn’t) then you can find them on Channel 9 here:

You can find the Tidy ToDo application here. To use the WCF server project you have to have IIS installed on your machine and you must start Visual Studio in Administrator mode:!1482

If you want to learn C# from the same text that we teach our students with at Hull, take a look here:

There is also a copy of the Windows Phone 7.0 Blue Book there, which has some background on phone programming that you might find useful.
