A Windows Phone camp is a free learning event where you have the opportunity to discover everything you need to know to develop and publish a Windows Phone code-named ‘Mango’ application. It is also the best environment for developers to unleash their creativity, rub shoulders with their peers, discover new trends and hone their skills all while having fun doing it. In addition to a “hands-on” workshop with the opportunity to roll up your sleeves and code – put your learnings to work and build that app you’ve been dreaming about!

Whether you’re a student just starting out or a seasoned developer for Windows Phone, Android, Symbian, Web OS or iOS, we’ll share tips and tricks and all-around Windows Phone development know-how throughout the two days. So be sure that you attend in teams – 2-3 members each – to develop the app of your dreams. The winning teams selected by a panel of experts will be awarded valuable prizes from Microsoft and its partners.

The Dev Camp will include a VIP keynote and technical sessions covering Windows Phone development.
All Windows Phone apps developed during Dev Camp will be posted on the Marketplace with a free Yallaapps registration.

Microsoft has dedicated a special prize for the best Windows Phone app that taps into the power of the cloud by using Windows Azure Toolkit for Windows Phone.
