Event Date: April 24, 2012
Event Time: 2:00pm – 3:00pm Eastern Time
This is the first in a three part series about porting your government apps to Windows Phone. Developers, designers, architects and managers must be prepared to answer the porting challenge. This webcast will provide an overview of what resources are available to iOS, Android and other mobile developers and we'll provide real-world examples of successful ports of government initiatives. Our follow on webcasts in May and June will get down to the mechanics. For those of you interested in just building for Windows Phone we will include information on readily available open data sources that you can use to build your new WP Apps.

Presenter: Joel Reyes, Senior Developer Evangelist, Microsoft
Back in the days as a GW-Basic-Kid (GBK), it never crossed my mind the possibility of working for the very company that inspired me to pursue a career in systems engineering and computer science… And here I am! RIT, Xerox and now Microsoft have had the most profound impact in my professional life which has always been Software. From developer, project manager, people manager, then consulting and now evangelism, I have enjoyed seeing the impact of software in the life of corporations as well as individuals. Today I have the privilege of working in helping make our Local Governments more efficient and more connected with the people. Privately, I enjoy family life, computers and direct involvement in my community to make a difference of those less fortunate. So the journey goes on…You can follow my blog at http://joelcitizen.com/.
