"If you create and publish a WP7 application that uses Telerik's controls and PreEmptive's analytics for WP7, then your user group gets $100. You as the developer get to keep the app and also get some sweet controls from Telerik and analytics from PreEmptive which will they provide free of charge through the end of 2011."

A sweet deal for developers and for user groups out there. Get $100 for your group, get some sweet controls, and have an app at the end of it that you own!

In The New York Area? Check Out NYPUG's First Meeting!

Posted by Jon Westfall in "Windows Phone Talk" @ 07:00 AM

Windows Phone 7 is one of the hottest topics floating around the net right now, and what better time to learn more about it than November 15 at the New York Windows Phone User Group (NYPUG) Meeting! This new group, which will be meeting regularly, is holding it's first meeting on the evening of November 15 (Monday) in Midtown Manhattan and you're invited! We've got a few short presentations, lots of time for Q&A, and more planned (Even a few giveaways), so be sure to register today at http://bit.ly/nypug1. A great time is guaranteed for all!

I'm really psyched to announce the first meeting of the New York Windows Phone User Group (NYPUG), open to anyone within a reasonable distance of NYC who wants to meet up, talk about phones, and learn about Windows Phone 7. Why am I psyched? Because I'm the one leading the group, along with fellow MVPs Johan van Mierlo, Adam Z. Lein, and Eric Hicks. Our First Meeting will be on Monday, November 15, starting around 6:30 with presentations starting around 7:30. We've scored some space courtesy of the local Microsoft office in New York, right in midtown Manhattan in the AXA Building (6th Ave, between 51st and 52nd). Space isn't limited, but registration is required, so if you're looking for a good time, perhaps some food (if we can arrange it) and a place to talk Windows Phone, head on over here to register and/or join our Live Group here.

"Continuing our meeting focus on preparing for Windows Phone 7 development, I will be presenting "Silverlight UI Tips and Tricks for Windows Phone Developers" - In our previous presentation on Windows Phone 7 development for Compact Framework developers, be were introduced to the essentials surrounding UI development with Silverlight and Visual Studio 2010. The logical "next step" in the learning process is to enhance our user interfaces using the powerful capabilities that Silverlight provdes. In this presentation, you will be introduced to animation capabilities to enhance your Windows Phone 7 UI. You will also learn about data access and data binding capabilities and see how to leverage "the cloud" and services it provides."

BostonPocketPC is holding their monthly user group meeting this Wednesday, which developers and end users alike may find interesting to attend. Fellow MVP Don Sorcinelli will be discussing Silverlight Tips & Tricks, a discussion on essential apps will take place, and a sweet door prize will be given away: A Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate MSDN Subscription! Oh, and I'll be there too - making the trek up from NYC to see some of the Boston crew and to personally heckle Don. So if you're not busy that night feel free to drop by around 6:30, details on BostonPocketPC's site.
