August 2011 Meetup!!


Our August 2011 Meetup is scheduled for August 15th from 6PM to 8PM @ TechColumbus. Please see details below & kindly RSVP.

What’s new in Windows Phone Mango!

Heard the buzz about “Mango”? Yep, it is the next release of Windows Phone OS slated for this Fall, and it is looking really good! This code-heavy presentation will focus on the new developer features of the Windows Phone 7.1 SDK release. We’ll cover topics like Augmented Reality, Search Extensibility, many of the sensor APIs (like camera, gps, gyro, and compass) and, of course, multi-tasking. This presentation definitely assumes some knowledge of Silverlight or Windows Phone development, but you’ll learn plenty even if this is your first exposure to the technologies.
