Microsoft is making it easy for new developers to learn the basics and to get a firm grasp on writing apps for their new phone. Windows Team Blog has put up a nice little 12 session “Jump Start Training” program.
Microsoft is also offering Firestarter hands on training course for developers who want to learn as well. These sessions do not just cover WP7, so take a gander and see if there is anything that interests you.
Windows Phone 7 development was part of the Firestarter page but they have moved it but this MSDN blog has the listing of the cities that are hosting this training. I am personally going to be at the Grand Rapids, MI session so stop by and say hi.
Thanks to Paul Thurrott from his Windows Phone Secrets site for the info.
