Last Two Stops of the Silverlight Tour 2010!

Confused...

The last two stops of the Silverlight Tour are headed to Atlanta and Portland (OR) in the next two months. The Silverlight Tour Workshop is a three-day course on Silverlight 4. It divides the content into three distinct areas: Design, Development and the Server-Side. Students should be able to develop Silverlight 4 applications once attending the workshop. The Workshop is structured with a mix of didactic lessons, demonstrations and hands-on labs. Each student will leave the workshop having created several small Silverlight applications. This variety of learning techniques will ensure that all students become proficient in the technology quickly and in an exciting way.

Announcing Two Weeks of Architecting WP7 Apps

WP7 Launch

With the big announcement of dates, phones and carriers today, there is a log of buzz around the new phones. I intend on picking one up on T-Mobile when their launch happens mid-November. It looks like the number of applications at launch should be around 2,000. I expect this to increase pretty fast. But that means a lot of you out there will be starting to write your own applications.
