Canadian Developer Connection : Windows Phone 7 Session Videos and Slides, Organized and Explained

Windows Phone 7 @ MIX10: Reports on the new hotness from MIX10 in Las Vegas

The Videos are Up!

It’s only been a couple of days since MIX10 wrapped up, but as promised, we recorded videos of all the sessions and they’re now available online. It doesn’t matter if you missed a session or missed the entire conference, you can now catch (or re-catch) them all. The videos are all “two-shots”; that is, they feature two views: one of the speaker, shown in a window on the left, and one of the current slide, shown in a view on the right. They’re all in Windows Video (WMV) format, and for many of the presentations, the speakers have also made the slides available in PowerPoint (PPTX) format.

The Windows Phone Videos

I’m biased – I’m one of the evangelists designated as a “Windows Phone 7 Champ” – so naturally I consider the Windows Phone 7 Series announcements made at MIX10 to be the most important ones of the conference. (Don’t worry, I’ll talk about the other things I saw at MIX in a later article.)

I’m a believer in “The Power of the Obvious”. Sometimes, there’s great power and utility in taking information that’s already out there and rearranging it in a way that makes it even more useful. That’s why I decided to take the listing of all the MIX10 session videos, pick out the ones applicable to Windows Phone 7 development and rearrange them into the three lists below:

I’ve listed each session with:

  • Its code and title – not the title that appears in the program, but the title that the presenters actually used (some were changed at the last minute)
  • A brief description of the session
  • A “You should watch it if” list to give you an idea of whether the presentation is relevant to you
  • Links to the video of the presentation, and if available, the slides

All told, there’s more than 18 hours’ worth of Windows Phone video.
