Windows Phone 7 Application Development

On February 7th, 2011, Dave Heil and I gave a presentation on Windows Phone 7 Application Development to the members of the Windows Networking Solutions User Group (WiNSUG) in Carlsbad, California.  We had a great time meeting the members of the user group, as we tried to answer their probing and insightful questions.  The slide deck from the presentation and the source code for the example Windows Phone 7 and Windows Azure Platform application, is included at the following links: WP7/Azure Platform Sample Application Sample Code: This application builds on the Thumbnails Azure Platform application and the Camera WP7 sample application provided by Microsoft.  The image captured by the WP7 Camera application is sent to a Storage Role on the Azure Platform, and displayed by the Web Role.
