On Saturday 7 December I presented at the developer conference DDD Brisbane on my favourite topic of Windows Phone. Despite some flight issues I managed to get to QUT and deliver my talk Building Your First Windows Phone App. The audience was very keen to learn about Windows Phone, and there was a lot of great questions and discussions during the 60 minute session. I managed to convince most that Windows Phone is the superior platform and best opportunity for developers (at least if you ask me). The attendee with the best and most thoughtful questions I decided to give a brand new Nokia Lumia 625 generously sponsored by Nokia Australia. I also gave out Nokia Luna headsets and trial subscriptions to Pluralsight, so people can go watch my online training courses on Windows Phone.
The conference also had a special guest speaker in Scott Hanselman, who talked about all the new amazing features in Visual Studio and what is to come in the near future. Scott also joined a panel of Joe Albahari from Linqpad, Joel Pobar from FaceBook and Hadi Hariri from JetBrains in a panel Q&A session, which was very interesting and very unscripted.
I hope to join everyone at DDD Brisbane again next year and if you want more photos check out Bronwyn’s blog post. Thanks also to my awesome employer Kiandra IT for getting me to Brisbane and supporting my efforts in Windows Phone world domination.
