Microsoft teaches University students to develop
their own phone app to be published on the Windows Phone
Windows Phones are the next big thing in
smartphone technology, and School of Technology students were given
guidance, software and specialist training, for free.
Academic Developer Evangelist, Joanna Tong said “This exercise is
dedicated to students, we have come to connect with students, this
training is to deliver technical information, which the students
are interested in”.
“Knowledge of the latest technology and contact with
international companies motivates our students and encourages them
to develop their ideas and innovate. In addition, it supports their
development as enterprising graduates. The University continues to
proudly support student events, such as this Microsoft Phone Camp
and a range of other activities, which include the Computer Games
Society and the mentoring of programming competition teams”, Dr
Thomas Hartley, Lecturer in Computer Games Development.
Adam Kesterton, (BSc Computer Science), attended the
event “The phone camp was a welcome enlightenment to the ease
of Windows phone development and phone development for other
platforms. Before the session I was unsure to try it , however,
after the training, I am now confident I will be able to get apps
on the market. My favourite part of the phone camp was
learning about the tools that are available, not only for
developers but for designers as well (which caught my
attention). Using free tools, I am now able to successfully
design and implement my own ideas. It was a great experience
and opened my eyes to the possibilities available." Adam Kesterton,
(BSc Computer Science).
