Last night I’ve talked about developing for Windows Phone 7 in Edinburgh on a Scot Alt.Net meeting. Thanks for everyone who showed up, as well as Mike Ormond for coming up from London and showing off some developer devices.
As promised, here’s a list of resources that I think serve as great starting point on cracking on with WP7 development:
- Download the free developer tools. You’ll need Windows Vista or Windows 7 to run them.
- Getting started with WP7 development: learning the WP7 ecosystem. Check out the list of resources I’ve collected that are extremely helpful on getting up to speed with WP7
- Getting started with WP7 development: learning Silverlight. Go through this article if you have no Silverlight/WPF experience. If you want to master WP7 development using Silverlight, first you’ll have to gain basic understanding of Silverlight
- Download the code of the simple demo application I’ve put together on the event. It’s a very simple application, but shows you how to do basic things like navigating between pages, binding data, saving to and loading from isolated storage, using gestures and theming.
Also, here is the slideshow I’ve presented at the event:
Good luck on getting started!
