Windows 8 developer camp companion application + source code

I put aside a few hours over the weekend and created a companion application for the “Windows 8 developer camps” that are currently running all around Australia. http://www.lalaninja.com.au/2012/03/19/windows-8-developer-camps-australia/

It only took a few hours to throw something simple together for the attendees. The application provides some basic features to help out on the day

  • Daily schedule
  • Dates
  • XDDN details. So that attendees can continue with their Windows 8 learning
  • Links to online Windows 8 developer resources
  • Links to source code of the demos I gave in my presentations (submitted in pending app update)

Download the Windows Phone 7 marketplace right now

I have made the source code available for anyone that wants to see how a simple app can be put together in only a few hours and submitted to the marketplace.

XDDN around Australia

To try and streamline the XDDN groups around Australia, I have been working with the organisers of the other cities to create a few central locations for everything.
For those unfamiliar with XDDN, it is a usergroup I run that focuses on UX, Design and Development on Microsoft UI platforms. Such as Win8, WinPhone7, HTML5, etc.

The main reason for moving everything to Meetup is that it allows everyone to easily see upcoming events and get automatically notified when new events are created.
Having XDDN on Meetup.com also supports my other goals of getting more people involved with their local development communities. Joining the groups will allow you to easily find other local groups that you may want to attend, such as Agile or Alt.Net groups.
Please join the group for your city, as the old event sites (such as EventBrite) will be slowly decommissioned over the next few weeks.
