Microsoft London (Cardinal Place) , London, GB

After a hectic few months Edge UG is back to our normal schedule but in keeping with fine Edge UG tradition we have 2 fantastic talks for you this month.

First up we have a familiar face come to discuss his experiences with Silverlight. Ray Booysen will be delivering his top 8 Silverlight gotchas that have raised their heads during his time when working with Silverlight.

That presentation will be followed by Paul Foster of Microsoft who will be dropping in to discuss the development experience for Windows Phone 7. Silverlight and XNA have been chosen as the development platforms for Windows Phone 7, Paul will be discussing both of these plus the tools required to develop applications and how you can make money from them.

As always there will be pizza plus we have several bits of SWAG to be giving away, we'd love to see as many of you there as possible.
