Main BodyWavefront and Microsoft are back with hands-on coding workshops! Calling all developers and designers – we are here to support your app building and get you prepared to submit it to the Windows Phone Store.

In just over two years, the Windows Phone Store has grown to well over 135,000 apps and games with no sign of slowing down. With an application ecosystem that continues to accelerate, now is the time to build new apps for the platform and port existing apps to Windows Phone Store.

Responding to the increased traction of HTML5, this workshop will give you an in-depth look at HTML5 and Windows Phone, and how the two can play together. We will also see how HTML5 factors into the development for Windows 8 and how web developers can leverage their skills in this space.
