Microsoft will be hosting a free, two-day virtual event next week for aspiring Windows Phone 8 developers. Given the high quality of the previous events, you won’t want to miss it, but I do expect the multi-part event—it runs literally all day both days—will be made available later for download.

The event is called Building Apps for Windows Phone 8 Jump Start, and it stars Andy Wigley, one half of the duo who hosted the previous Jump Start series for both Windows Phone 7 and Windows Phone 7.5. I’m a huge fan of these video series, and suspect the new one will be excellent as well.

“This two-day course is specially tailored for developers looking to leverage C#/XAML to build cool apps and games for Windows Phone 8,” the event’s listing on Microsoft Virtual Academy reads. “Clearly, this platform is another leap forward in Microsoft’s overall mobile strategy and the developer community has taken notice. Now is the time to embrace your opportunity and start building Windows Phone apps.”
