Last year, m:lab East Africa conducted trainings on windows phone application development, sponsored by Microsoft’s 4Afrika initiative. This year, the mlab will be conducting a series of similar trainings on C# and Windows Phone 8 apps development.
The first training in the series will run for four weeks from the 10th February – 7th March 2014 at the m:lab East Africa training facility. The training will be offered through evening classes to favour individuals with busy daytime schedules and therefore will run from 5pm to 8pm daily.
The training is aimed at providing participants with knowledge on the key features and tools of the Windows Phone platform. With the training, developers will be able to develop windows phone applications to be published in the windows app store. The training also opens up an opportunity for participants to be able to take part in AppCampus -a mobile application accelerator program with an 18 million euro joint investment between Microsoft and Nokia to foster mobile application development on Windows Phone and any other Nokia platform.
