I’m lining up a series of events at the Orlando Windows Store [ http://www.meetup.com/MicrosoftStore-Orlando ] as both time and scheduling allow me and the store to come together. I’m going to partner up with the Orlando Windows Phone Dev Group [ http://www.meetup.com/Orlando-Windows-Phone-Window-8-User-Group/ ] lead Shayne Boyer [ http://blog.tattoocoder.com/ ] on the store developer nights. Hopefully we’ll see both new and familiar faces out there!
I’m also going to run Office Hours before and after each lecture I attend. During Office Hours you can work with me on Windows Phone or Windows 8 application issues, architecture, or whatever. No promises but I’ll do my best. Just like in college where the professor offered up office hours for you to get help. Note I also offer Office Hours online and in various locations as I travel. For a complete list of Office Hours be sure to check out http://ohours.org/jhealy .
