Learn247 announced a free "Building Mobile Applications with Visual Studio .NET" online training series presented by the Mobile Devices Division at Microsoft. This is a 3 part hands on training course which has been designed to teach all developers need to know to begin building powerful mobile applications using Visual Studio.NET.
Session 1 - Introduction to Windows Mobile Development
Date: - 16th November 10:00 GMT - 11:30 GMT
"If you are new to Microsoft's Mobile platform and development tools then why not start with the basics: What is Windows Mobile? What's Microsoft's strategy and view of Mobile platforms? What types of application can I build for Windows Mobile? How can I build them? Deploy them? Where is Microsoft going with the platform?
All these questions and more will be answered in this session. During this session we will build a simple .NET based application using C# or VB.NET to experience the development tools, emulators and debug environment first hand."
Session 2 - Developing Smartphone Applications in Managed Code
Date: - 30th November 10:00 GMT - 11:30 GMT "With the advent of .NET Compact Framework and Windows Mobile 2003, Smartphone application development could not be simpler. In this session we will explore the features of Compact Framework specific for Smartphone development. Most of this session will be dedicated to hands-on work, building your very own snake game."
Taking part in the training is free. Developers need to signup before participating and once signed up, Learn247 will send an e-mail nearer the time on how to download the code.
As part of the training there are a number of prizes to give away including an Orange SPV E200 Windows Mobile Smartphone for each webcast. One attendee from each session will be chosen at random to win this prize.
