Hands-On Labs on developing Windows Phone 7 apps and Windows Azure in September coming to Wallisellen, Basel, Geneva and Berne

This is your chance to attend one of our hands-on labs even if you don’t like traveling to Zurich – we are taking two of our labs on the road to Basel, Geneva and Berne:

The first lab will get you “Writing a Windows Phone 7 application in Silverlight”, the second one is titled “Discovering Windows Azure”.

Both are self-paced instructor-led labs that require you to bring your own laptop. You will get everything you need to start developing for Windows Phone 7 or against Windows Azure using a detailed hands-on lab manual. Our specialists will be on site to help you should you get in trouble and answer your questions.


Interested? Here is the official invitation including all the required links to sign up.

Make sure to have a look at the prerequisites to make sure you will get the most out of the lab should you decide to participate.

I am looking forward to seeing you at one of the labs!


MSDN Hands-on Lab Roadshow
“Writing a Windows Phone 7 Application in Silverlight”
and “Discovering Windows Azure”

Dear Sir / Madam,


In order to get up to speed in developing applications for the new Windows Phone 7 and Windows Azure platforms, Microsoft Switzerland is organizing a Hands-on Lab roadshow in September with events in Wallisellen, Bern, Basel and Geneva.

The Windows Phone 7 Hands-on Lab will show you how you can create a consumer application that aggregates news feeds and images and displays them in a panorama-style user interface that can be seen in the new Windows Phone 7 hubs; all this using Microsoft Silverlight.

The Windows Azure Hands-on Lab provides you an overview of Microsoft Windows Azure, which represents Microsoft offering for cloud-based computing. In the first part of the lab you will create a simple ASP.NET Web Application; in the second part you will prepare it and extend it for Windows Azure. In the last part you will deploy the whole solution on Windows Azure.

For more information please visit the event pages:
