New Zealand has a great history of mobile app development. iPhone development started way back in the jailbreak days, when local company PolarBearFarm developed the first video recording app for the original iPhone. I’d like to think we can tap the same potential for Windows Phone 7.
A bunch of local lads, including myself, will be conducting Windows Phone 7 developer training in Christchurch (15 June), Wellington (16 June) and Auckland (17 June). If you’re a developer with an interest in WP7 development, get yourself registered on the Marketplace and then register for the free event. If @nzigel is to be believed, we’ll even have some devices available for hands-on time!
Whether you’re coming or not, hit up the LinkedIn group we’ve set up.
