Yuriy Lyeshchenko Luck in life always exists in the form of an abstract class that cannot be instantiated directly and needs to be inherited by hard work and dedication.

This is going to be my first blog post. I'm not going to post anything particularly meaningful this time, the intent is just to kick off blogging. Hopefully, I will be posting on a regular basis.

Lately I have been interested in WP7 development and as Microsoft is approaching the release date for their phones I am expecting Microsoft to be extremely  active with events, releasing documentation and other materials to get developers up to speed with the new platform (if the word “new” could be used here as it is Silverlight-powered environment…). Finally I came across a series of such events (click on the image to go to the event registration web site):

Unfortunately none of those will be held in Kansas…

There was an event in Tulsa, OK that you were able to attend - Kansas region (at least Southeast) is covered by the Tulsa area.

Thanks Dennis for the info. What kind of event was that? I can not find this one at the Windows Phone 7 Developer lunch event I linked in my post. Did you attend it? How was it?

You're welcome! It basically was a Windows Phone 7 bootcamp with Chrie Koenig. There was a presentation of the device as well as of the capabilities linked to the developer tools. I got to try a real Windows Phone 7 device (blogged about it here: http://dennisdel.com/?p=378). It was well worth the trip. What part of Kansas are you from?

Interesting, I have not had a chance to play with a real WP7 device yet. But I will definitely check them out as they hit stores.
I am from Overland Park. Are you from Kansas too?
