12th Feb 2008 - Visual Studio 2008 Kickstart

Come join us this 12th (Tues) February 2008 where I will present two sessions on what is new in Visual Studio 2008 and Windows Mobile development.

Session 1 - What is new in Visual Studio 2008
If you have always wanted to learn the new features in Visual Studio 2008 but have yet to find the time, the first session will kick start you with:

* A quick introduction to Visual Studio 2008
* New languages features in Visual Basic 9.0 and C# 3.0
- Implicit Typing
- Automatic Properties
- Object Initializers
- Collection Initializers
- Anonymous Types
- Lambda Expressions
- Extension Methods
- Partial Methods
* What is Silverlight

Session 2 - Windows Mobile 6 Development
In the second session, Wei-Meng will demonstrate how to get started in Windows Mobile 6 development. You will learn about the differences between versions of Windows Mobile - Standard, Classic, and Professional. This session will show you:

* A quick introduction to the Windows Mobile 6 platform

In addition, Motorola (Symbol) will also provide some units of their flagship products - MC70 and MC35, for demonstration. If your company is currently evaluating Windows Mobile devices for enterprise deployment, this is a good chance for you to have hands-on experience with these devices.
