Workshop Presentation

Creating Windows Mobile Apps

Mark Frydenberg
Bentley University

Objectives
Learn how to create mobile applications for the Windows Phone 7 platform using Visual Basic and C# in just a few hours. By the end of this workshop, you will create and customize a phone app template developed by the presenter that combines information from your school's Web site, RSS feeds, and other online sources to create a phone app for your school. Best of all, you don't need to write a single line of source code to do this! You will also learn how to submit your apps to the Microsoft Marketplace. For those with some programming experience, we will review application code to interact with RSS feeds, display maps, and invoke Web services. We will also introduce Silverlight markup for designing a mobile application's user interface. For those with no programming experience, we will also present web-based development tools to create mobile applications on iPhone, Droid, and Windows Phone 7 platforms.

Targeted Attendees
This workshop is intended for faculty who teach introductory IT or application development courses and wish to learn about adding a mobile development exercise to their courses, as well as anyone who would like an introduction to Windows Mobile application development
