So we know mobility is a hot topic and Windows Phone 7 is being released in October, so there is about to be an explosion of applications developed for the platform. So many people are asking themselves - how do I get into it?
Peter will cover the tools you need to get started and what you need to consider when building apps for Windows Phone 7.
To illustrate the development process Peter will walk through creating a basic application with the key considerations for mobile development: <ul><li>application navigation</li><li>interacting with web services</li><li>local storage on the phone</li><li>media</li><li>interacting with the phones functions</li></ul>
