Thinking about developing your own Windows Phone 7 app? Listen to Mayank, as he shares his positive experience with designing and developing LiveShare for the Windows Phone 7 platform. LiveShare is a communication application that allows for contextual sharing. Don’t miss this Bytes by MSDN interview as Brian Gorbett, Microsoft Senior Architect Evangelist, chats with Mayank Mehta, Co-Founder & Head of Products for LiveShare at Cooliris.
After graduating as an engineer from McGill in 2004, I founded and sold a home automation company in Montreal called Ambient Technologies. In 2006 I had the great fortune of connecting with my co-founders and starting Cooliris with the simple mantra of: "Think beyond the browser". We believe that new and better ways of browsing, organizing, and flexibly sharing rich-media content can be developed, using both the full power of the hardware and new software concepts that make it easier to communicate around, discover, and monetize content. Cooliris is venture-backed by Kleiner Perkins and is based out of Palo Alto, California.
Brian Gorbett is a startup guy in Microsoft’s Developer & Platform Evangelism (dpe) division, responsible for engaging partners and customers around developer tools and platform technologies. He is currently leading the startup initiative for the central region of the United States and actively seeks out passionate technology startups with innovating ideas. An active developer and technologist, Gorbett has contributed to national publications on Microsoft technologies and still codes on a daily basis. He has recently been working on delivering rich user experiences using Windows Azure and demonstrating the power of the platform to partners and emerging businesses. Before joining Microsoft, Gorbett managed a team of developers and designers responsible for delivering next generation rich internet applications. Gorbett resides in Chicago, Il, but can be found on Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, or just about any other social network.
