We had a no. of enthusiastic attendees this time in our event and everyone enjoyed the sessions a lot. Thanks to everyone who attended. Looking forward for your participation in the coming days.


In this post I am going to share the agenda, pictures and slides. Also, I am announcing the date of the next monthly meet. Don’t forget to register for the event and join us in September.


Like the previous two months, there was rain fall in the morning and had a very less hope of finding attendees during the session but we noticed a big crowd (as per this chapters record) of 24 attendees, who joined us and enjoyed it. Also got some positive feedback from all the attendees and suggestions to include some additional topics. Thanks to all of you for joining us and hope to see your active participation in the coming months.

As per the agenda, we started with the registration followed by welcome note. Then the time was for technical sessions. First I started with basics of “Windows Phone Application Development” and then introduced the attendees with the “Windows Phone App Studio” which Microsoft recently released as beta. People really like the concept of App Studio which actually reduce the efforts of writing code and build apps for WP Store.


Attendees enjoying the sessions


After the first session, there was a small break for snacks (samosa and sweet) and then Supreet started his session demonstrating Windows Azure to connect with Windows Phone using Mobile Services. A very good session from him where he described how to create the Azure account, database, programmatically create the table columns and query the table for data.


Then there was the final slide from me representing the sponsor Nokia, where I announced a small competition to build at least 3 Windows Phone apps using App Studio (students) and code (developers). Based on the output of that, we are going to provide subscription packs of Nokia Lumia Premium Developer token ($99 subscription amount but valued $1500 each) to the five winners of this competition.


Quiz winners got T-Shirts of Telerik


And finally a small quiz from the session contents and two winners got a Telerik T-Shirt from me. We had a very good event this time and all the attendees were very enthusiastic to learn and note down the points that we covered during the event.



Next monthly meeting date has been announced. We are going to do it on Saturday, 14th September 2013. The agenda and venue is yet to finalize. Keep an eye to for further details on the event.
