ConfApp [Conference App] - Windows Phone 7


Nice! I dig how past conferences are included, with their session videos and PPT’s. This kind of thing is something I’ve been thinking about for ages now… (aka my past thoughts on a MSFT ConfAPI/ConferenceAPI where they provide the raw data for all their conferences in an api, like OData, and then let the community mash it up… just like this)

Now if only I had a Windows Phone 7… :(
