St. Louis Windows Phone Meetup

Getting Started with Windows Phone Development Workshop by Nokia

Friday, June 22nd, 2012 at 5pm - 10pm

Location: 3 City Place Dr., Suite 1100, Creve Coeur, MO 63141

This event is in the past.

St. Louis Windows Phone Meetup is pleased to announce a Getting Started with Windows Phone Development Workshop, sponsored by Nokia, on June 22, 2012.  Nokia Developer Ambassador Rich Dunbar will be leading the workshop.  WP7 enthusiasts and developers of all skill levels are welcomed!

This workshop will be focused on the tools and resources you have available as a developer/potential developer for Windows Phone development from Nokia and Microsoft. The event will begin with a brief presentation from Nokia and will then focus on ensuring all the proper tools are introduced and installed. We will review some of the tutorials and quick start projects and then allow time for the attendees to work on the projects they choose and ask questions along the way. The goal of the workshop is to help developers get started on their first Windows Phone app.

This developer workshop is sponsored by Nokia and they have been kind enough to provide pizza and beverages for the workshop.  Thanks, Nokia!  So come on out with your laptop, have the programming tools installed (or at least downloaded), and arrive hungry for knowledge---and food, too.  Although this meetup is primarily focused on WP7 development, we’ll be sure to make time for some enthusiast chatter as we’ve done at the previous meetups.

WP7 Programming tools you will need:

WP7 SDK 7.1 -

WP7 SDK 7.1.1 Update -

Silverlight for Windows Phone Toolkit -

If you have Windows 8 and are experiencing trouble when installing any of these tools, please see this page for possible workarounds:

And, as always, your fearless STL WP7 Meetup leader will have goodies to hand out!

We’ll begin the food around 5:30 PM and probably wrap everything up around 9 PM or so. That way Rich and I have time to clean up and get out by 10.
