Yesterday we kicked off the Belgian Windows Phone User Group (WiPhug) with a first event called ‘Building a Windows Phone application from Z to A’. We started with a short introduction of the team behind WiPhug, our intentions for the community and of course the session itself, given by Michael, Glenn and myself.
With a shared crowd of both Windows Phone developers, users and novices we opted to take a somewhat different approach by starting with the final result, and reversing back to how we did build the WiPhug app and what we tools we did use:
- MS SQL Server CE
- Bing Maps / JeffWilcox.Maps
With a head count of approx. 45 listeners and all the great feedback we got, we can call this a great start for WiPhug. Future sessions will be announced on our site and through the WP7 app.
Slides are available here.
Edit: over the years, we have renamed WiPhug to MADN to support ‘Metro’ development for both Windows Phone and Windows 8. Of course not long after, Microsoft had to let go of the term Metro and it changed to M for Modern.
