Windows Phone 7 Quick Start Developer Guide

Earlier this year I published a series of articles on Codeguru about WP7 Silverlight development. Later on I have remastered them a bit and merged them together with a couple of articles by Vipul Patel into a small eBook that was published on, called Windows Phone 7 Quick Start Developer Guide. There is also a ZIP archive with the source code for all the sample projects presented throughout the book. While you can still find the articles online on the site, I recommend the eBook as a better learning material as it puts the various topics together.

The eBook is intended for developers with a fair knowledge of .NET programming that want to start developing Silverlight applications for Windows Phone 7. However, it is not a complete guide to Silverlight development for Windows Phone 7. The eBook covers a smaller set of Silverlight topics that is intended to prepare the reader for the most common challenges a Windows Phone 7 developer faces.

Here is the table of contents of the eBook.

  • Preface
  • Where to Start
  • Creating a Simple Windows Phone Application: “Hello World!”
  • The Application Bar
  • Page Navigation
  • Tombstoning and Data Persistence
  • Pivot and Panorama
  • Launchers and Choosers
  • Touch
  • Using Bing Maps Control
  • App Hub: Application Submission Walkthrough
  • References
  • About the Authors
