WP7Dev at VBUG Reading (Bracknell)

Last night I went over to VBUG in Reading to talk about getting started with developing for Windows Phone 7. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and everyone said the talk was interesting and useful.

As ever there were lots of questions, which I consider a good thing as it means people are getting the information they want. (Assuming that I could answer them all - which I managed yesterday!)

There were a few requests for information which I said I'd help point people towards. As such, here are:

My slides: http://www.slideshare.net/mrlacey/introducing-windows-phone-7-development

(most of) My demo code: http://cid-cc22250598bf7f04.office.live.com/self.aspx/Public/WP7-UserGroups.zip

A comparison of currently available phones: http://wmpoweruser.com/windows-phone-7-device-comparison-chart/

The new Push Notification Service helpers: http://create.msdn.com/en-us/education/catalog/article/pnhelp-wp7

MSDN docs: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff402535(v=vs.92).aspx

A great place to ask any questions: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/windows-phone-7

If anyone is interested I'll also be giving a very similar talk at the Canary Wharf Dot Net User Group on Feb 2nd. Details at: http://www.meetup.com/cwdnug/calendar/15949204/
