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 internet.com, 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.
- 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
- Using Bing Maps Control
- App Hub: Application Submission Walkthrough
- About the Authors
