Upcoming Windows Phone 7 Deployment Labs

If you’re working on Windows Phone 7 applications, you’d probably love to be able to deploy and test your app on a shiny, Windows 7 phone.  I have three upcoming opportunities for you to do so:

* Irish Open Spaces Coding Day: http://codingday.org/
Andrea from http://dublinalt.net has put together the third Irish Open Space Coding Day on this coming Saturday, September 11th from 11am at the Enterprise Ireland Offices in Clontarf. Register here.  I’m sending along a couple of phones for people to test out their apps on.

* Windows Phone 7 Deployment Lab (Sandyford):
Lab session in the Microsoft offices in Sandyford Industrial Estate.  You’re welcome to drop by from 9am-4pm to test out your app.  Please bring either your .xap file or your laptop with your application/game on it and we will test it and video it so that you get some feedback on how it works on a device.
- Wednesday September 15th 9am-4pm
- Thursday September 23rd 9am-4pm

If you’d like to attend one of our deployment labs, please drop me an e-mail beforehand at martharo @ microsoft.com or send me a message on Twitter at https://twitter.com/martharotter to let me know what time so that we can expect you and give you directions.  Our offices are an easy 3 minute walk from the Sandyford Luas stop inside Sandyford Industrial Estate.

I don’t have quite the setup that the UK team does Smile but my colleague Dave Northey and I will get your app up and running on a phone and help you to debug any issues you’ve run into. 

See you at an upcoming Deployment Lab!
