Despite the fact that Russian finals of Imagine Cup have already taken place I want to point out students -habra readers, that not all of the international categories of the competition have been completed. The only competition remaining at this time is the Windows Phone 7 RockStar Award , which will last till May 24 As part of this contest, you have to prototype an app under Windows Phone 7 phone that does not yet exist – and not necessarily alone, you can participate in teams of up to 4 people. It's not too late to win the Imagine Cup - be one of the first to write code for Windows Phone 7!It's not too late to win the Imagine Cup - be one of the first to write code for Windows Phone 7!
Despite the fact that the phone itself has not yet been released – it is already quite possible to program under the emulator using recently released Visual Studio 2010 And you will have to program using technologies you already know, you can choose from Silverlight or XNA Accordingly, if you want to program an application with a traditional beautiful user interface, use Silverlight, and for something more dynamic, with graphics and music, use XNA.
Prototyping an application for Windows Phone 7 is, contrary to what you might think, not very hard, especially if you’ve already tried to create web sites or applications on the .NET platform. It’s very easy to learn how to create apps for Windows Phone 7 using a special Windows Phone 7 Training Kit – it has ready-made code examples, lab work and video reports (although only in English so far). Another useful resource is Windows Phone 7 Developer Portal It’s very good about writing games for Windows Phone 7 In this article on the hubra As well as here , and about development on Silverlight is illustrated in the article about creating a twitter application If you repeat what’s shown in these articles and upload the result to imaginecup.com, you can already claim success!
Practice creating your own apps for Windows Phone 7 so you can be among the first to master the technology!Grab a designer on your team to make the interface look attractive, and don’t get bogged down in the details! And don’t forget to Submit your creations to Until May 24, 2010. on imaginecup.com! The project with the most points according to the international jury will get a guaranteed prize from us: a high-resolution webcam from Microsoft, like the one on the picture above. The non-guaranteed prize for reaching the international final will be $8000 , a summer trip to Warsaw, and Windows Phone 7 device itself to each participant !
As with the other Imagine Cup contests, this contest is open to students, graduate students, and high school students over the age of 16.
