WIN a FREE Phone with like NO effort and attend the Windows Phone 7 Developer Launch

image October 12th will be the Windows Phone 7 Developer Launch. There's an MSDN Simulcast event you can sign up for, that'll be a full day of training on writing Windows Phone apps.

In the US, there are also a lot of live in-person Free Events to learn Windows Phone 7 Development listed at http://www.msdnevents.com/wp7devlaunch. I encourage you to register now as they are filling up fast.

A friend asked me to put a Windows Phone 7 banner on my blog, and I said half-jokingly, what'll you give me? Then I realized it's less interesting if there's a banner on MY blog and more interesting if there's a banner on YOUR blog.

So, I brokered a deal where two of you (US only for now, sorry, I seriously tried) will win a free Windows Phone 7.

Here's the legal rules they wrote, but here's my four-step layman's version.

  1. Go get a Windows Phone 7 banner or badge
  2. Put the image on your blog
  3. Link the image to http://www.msdnevents.com/wp7devlaunch/
  4. Lie in wait

Now, they'll use Bingle/Gobing and a link: query to find two of you randomly, I'm sure, but even better, after you've done it, add a comment on this post and Iet everyone know!

Within 10 days after the final Windows Phone 7 developer launch event, they'll select TWO folks randomly. Your odds are good, friend. Like way less than 1 in a billion. We shall see. Go Go Go!

richardpawson Everything is better if you put the word "naked" in front of it. Is that the case with "Naked Objects?" Richard Pawson wrote his PhD thesis on "Naked Objects." Scott sits down to chat with Richard about the framework. Too complex? Too simple? How does Naked Objects apply in today's object oriented systems and what does it learn from yesterday's?
