The Microsoft Academic team is coming the the University of Reading for a day introducing people to the Windows Phone 7 platform. Come along and get your feet wet with some Microsofties!

The event runs from 1pm - 6pm on Wednesday the 14/03. I'll be there. To sign up to the event check your  University inboxes if you're a student, or email Microsoft at

Think up some app ideas before the day and maybe on it they can become reality, and if you're a student, they could be published for free, and you can even make money from them. Learning a skill that can make money from nothing is certainly useful!

Not at Reading? Not to worry, you can see a full list of planned Phone Camps here.

There's an opportunity to win one of 3 brand new Nokia Lumia 800s!

Download the software in advance from Dreamspark and get set up ready for a day of development!
