Windows Phone 7 Developer Tools have shipped and now the actual devices are around the corner. For a good start, Microsoft organizes a series of events in different parts of the United States to expand the general knowledge about the platform, as well as give WP7 developers some tips and help regarding application development for the new mobile system. In some locations, actual Windows Phone 7 devices will be present, so attendees will be able to test their applications on a real device, if the event has this planned.

So, if you are in the United States, pick a location close to you and register:

  • Mountain View, CA - 10/12/2010 REGISTER
  • Orange County, CA - 09/29/2010 REGISTER
  • Orange County, CA - 09/30/2010 REGISTER
  • San Francisco, CA - 10/20/2010 REGISTER

There are many presentations planned, as well as hands-on labs so don't hesitate to sign up if you have time an the possibility to be present at the event location.

For a map view and additional details about the upcoming events, please visit the Microsoft Live Events for Developers page.
