Lee Stott has a great summary blog post with all of the videos from the //BUILD 2013 conference that just happened last week.

It’s nice because filtering to this event and finding Windows Phone sessions on Channel9 is not the best and this is a great snap shot of all of the sessions you can view from the conference in one page. Also shows that Microsoft although focused on Windows 8.1 at this event, still had a sizable presence of Windows Phone Developer topics at this event.

While I got spoiled with how nice it was to use Zune Desktop to Sync my rented Zune Pass (now Xbox Music) music files to my Windows Phone 7.x version – the new method for Windows Phone 8 was simply not adequate for this task. It does how ever provide a quick way to backup my full resolution photos to my local hard drive (knowing that the Windows Phone 8 does it’s own backup to my SkyDrive now really makes me sound like a dinosaur :)

Windows Phone app for desktop is finally out of beta:

Official Blog Post: Improved Windows Phone App for Desktop now available

http://blogs.windows.com/windows_phone/b/windowsphone/archive/2013/05/29/improved-windows-phone-app-for-desktop-now-available.aspx

Make sure to grab the latest version yourself and update yours today! This version will let you know and update itself next time here is one, not more manual updates.

And finally if this is not “cutting it” then as the blog suggest - “If you’re new to Windows Phone 8 and need some help figuring out the best sync strategy, our online wizard can help point you in the right direction.”

DO NOT MISS THIS 5/21 6PM : Special Tampa WPUG meeting - How I became a Millionaire writing apps!

If you are in Tampa the night of 5/21 you should not have any excuses not to show up to this event. There should not even be any giveaways (especially this awesome) because I am sure this will be a sold out event. Be there (early) or be square.

Join me in congratulating Bill in his achievement.
