about XAPFest
XAPFest is a Windows Phone 7 Hackathon for developers of every background and skill level. iOS and Android developers, .NET veterans, and curious programmers who want to try their hand at programming for Windows Phone 7 are all invited! It is a great opportunity to get to learn new technologies, meet members of the SoCal tech community, code, and have fun!

XAPFest consists of 1 full day of hacking – breakfast, lunch, dinner, plus snacks and drinks will be provided. This is a BYOL (Bring Your Own Laptop) Event. Please remember to install the free WP7 tools and SDK before the event begins, and if you don’t have a copy of Windows Vista or Windows 7 (required to install the WP7 tools), you can request a Windows 7 license. Loaner Windows Phone 7 units will be available to teams and individuals for the purposes of testing apps.
