Everything developers need to start developing and selling applications on Microsoft's highly-anticipated Windows Phone 7 platform

 

  • By an extraordinary author team that includes three Microsoft MVPs and a Microsoft developer evangelist specializing in Windows Phone 7
  • A comprehensive view of mobile application development, not just a narrow guide to programming technologies
  • Designed to make mobile development accessible to 1,000,000+ developers who already use Microsoft programming tools and platforms
  •  

    This is a practical, hands-on guide to mastering mobile development with Microsoft's highly anticipated Windows Phone 7 platform. Written by four experts in Windows Phone 7, this book delivers a solid, wide-ranging understanding of the entire mobile application development process. The authors start with the absolute basics, including installing and utilizing Windows Phone 7 development tools; working with the Metro user interface; and migrating from desktop development. Then, step-by-step, you master page-based navigation, finger-friendly development, storage, integration, profiling, debugging, performance optimization, and more. The authors walk through using Microsoft Silverlight to create intuitive applications that interact with the cloud; developing mobile games with XNA; and distributing applications via the Marketplace. Friendly, accessible, and conversational, this book delivers a practical grounding in Windows Phone development without ever becoming overwhelming or intimidating. Each lesson builds on everything that's come before, helping you learn core techniques from the ground up. You learn key concepts, syntax, and techniques through short, practical examples that reflect the realities of mobile development, and apply Microsoft's own best practices.
