Don’t forget to join us tomorrow for the WP7 Online Conference

  • When: Thursday 24th March @ 3pm GMT

The conference consists of a couple of joint sessions followed by two tracks – one on building apps for Windows Phone 7 (Silverlight focused) and one on building games (XNA focused).

Note that the agenda below is slightly different than the one you’ll see published elsewhere. I’ve had to switch the order of the last two session on the apps track. This is the most up-to-date agenda below:
