It’s wonderful to introduce Mark Radacz fresh off his speaking engagement at JaxMUG. This month’s presentation is a more technical continuation of his previous talk.
I present to all my friends the very aptly named . . .
Programming for Windows Phone

This talk will take you step by step on a journey all the way to the Marketplace. We will cover differences between WP7, WP8, tablets, devices availability, how to consume web-services, mobile ads solutions, when to go with a paid or ads supported app, how to persist data and more. BIO: Mark J Radacz – born and raised in Poland and lived in Germany and Canada before settling in Jacksonville. Works as a developer at SkyBOOKS, 20 years hands-on experience in object oriented software analysis, design, development and web development in MS Windows, UNIX and recently iOS. MCTS in Business Intelligence Solutions.

We meet at the Bank of America Campus at 9000 Southside Blvd. Building 500; this is where the cafeteria is located between the two parking garages and straight back from the front parking area when you first enter the security gate.  The meeting room is on the 2nd floor of Building 500 of the Bank of America complex. Go upstairs, turn right, and follow it all the way to the back. Look for our sign at the end, and smell for pizzas!
