Toronto WinMoDevCamp Coming November 11, 2009

Anthony Bartolo from Microsoft asked if I’d help spread the word about the Toronto WinMoDevCamp coming to Mississauga on November 11, 2009.  It’s free Windows Mobile development training, and it’s hosted by Microsoft.

It looks like a fantastic event!



Learn about Windows Mobile Development at WinMoDevCamp Toronto – November 11, 2009 

Interested in learning how easy it is to build applications for Windows Mobile? Want to know more about getting your app in the Windows Mobile Marketplace?

WinMoDevCamp is a series of not-for-profit gatherings to develop applications for the newly released Microsoft Windows Phone 6.5 O/S. Attendees will include mobile developers, web developers, .Net Developers, UI designers, testers, device manufactures and Canadian Carriers, all working together. Development projects will include both solo and team efforts. While some attendees will wish to work solo during the event, we encourage attendees to team up, based on expertise, to work in ad-hoc project development teams. All attendees should be prepared to work on a development project during the event.

  • Create new applications for the Windows Mobile Platform.
  • Meet and work side-by-side with team members from the
  • Microsoft Mobile Developer Experience team.
  • Gain assistance in migrating existing mobile applications from the iPhone, Blackberry and Palm Pre to the Windows Mobile Platform.
  • Create applications to support Windows Enterprise Applications.
  • Interact with Canadian Wireless Carrier representatives
    (Bell, Telus, Rogers & WIND)

Many thanks to the Microsoft Mobile Developer Experience team for their support in making these events happen! I want to specifically thank Loke Uei, Senior Technical Project Manager on the Microsoft Mobile Developer Experience team for not hesitating in giving his full support to the community.  Register here:

 This Just In!



Also I just announce three Call of Duty Prize give-a-ways (One is the complete XBOX 360 Modern Warfare Console) for WinMoDevCamp Toronto.  I have posted details on my blog here:

  1. Thank you Dan. Much appreciated.

  2. Interesting; I’d love to develop applications for Windows Mobile and leverage my existing .NET experience/expertise, but very few people seem to have a Windows mobile phone.

    I specifically bought a windows mobile PDA but it’s running Windows Mobile 5, and because I can’t upgrade it my desire to build applications for it is pretty small.

    Are you going to this event Dan?

    I’ve written some applications for Windows Mobile. Mostly Shop Floor applications. I also built a mobile scanning framework as well which we use for future mobile scanning apps. I like mobile development. A big factor in mobile development though is the type of mobile devices used by the organizations you are targetting, so I can see a mobile solution for a client including getting them on the right mobile devices as part of the solution.

    I’m also interested in how much or the market Android will break into within the next year or so.

    The WM marketshare has a lot of users and with the WM Marketplace consumer apps should be in easier reach of consumers.

    (just some thoughts on mobile development)

    So, to answer your question. I am planning on attending.. (unless there is some catastrophic reason I can’t leave the office….)
