If you live in the Atlanta area and wanted to get started with Windows Phone 7 development now is a pretty good time. On the 24th of August there will be two back-to-back events just for you. The first is a Windows Phone 7 Firestarter event. It will start off with an introduction to the Windows Phone 7 platform, Silverlight, and XNA and then cover what you need to know about the Windows Marketplace for mobile, using Windows Phone Services, and creating compelling user experiences with Windows Phone 7.
The second event that evening is more interactive and hands on. For the second event you'll need to bring your computer with the Windows Phone 7 tools preloaded and you go through interactive labs to get you into Windows Phone 7 development. The seating for these events is limited and expected to sell out fast, so if you are interested register promptly.
