Hackfest Ajax Roundup / WP7 Hackfest Part 3?

The Hackfest event was a very busy but extremely fun day.  I got to meet some really great developers that were exploring some great new app ideas for the phone. 

I got to see an extremely cool game that will definitely be a must have for my phone.  The two guys developing it swore me to secrecy, but promised that they would keep me posted!  Follow me on twitter (@atleyhunter) and I promise I will tweet about it when it is released.

A couple of developers won a free Marketplace subscription!   It was great to help new developers to the platform get started.

All in all, it was a great day of coffee, coke, pizza, jokes and some great WP7 coding!  Thanks to everyone that came out, hope to see you again soon!


What’s This About a Hackfest Part 3???HackFest Spring 2011 - Part Unknown

Just a quick note that there WILL BE a
Windows Phone Hackfest Part 3!

I’m very happy to say that the Hackfests have been incredibly
popular and because of that, I am going to be doing another
one in late May or early June.

I have to hand it to the developers that have been coming out
and spending the day with us to see how to get started.  Many are finding that having a whole room of developers working on the
same platform is both energizing and helpful.  I have been told
by many that it is great to have people on-hand that have done
it before and can save them hours of poking in the darkness of
the internet for answers.

Keep checking back here as I will be announcing plans, location and times as soon as the venue has been chosen for the next Hackfest!

If you belong to or head up a User Group that would like to have a Hackfest for your users, please contact me at and I will be happy to see what I can do to get one going for your group!
