After a huge timeframe I return to my writing activity starting a series of articles about Windows Phone 7 for SilverlightShow website. During this time I've find the time to develop many samples for this device to prepare some speeches and I've created two applications for the marketplace.
The intent of the new series is to collect a number of articles, starting from scratch up to the very complicated subjects and I've started today with the very first and basic article about how to get started. In this article explain the architecture of the phone, and how to startup the development environment to be ready to write your own applications and deploy to the marketplace. Here is the planned table of contents of the series, but keep in mind that if you believe I miss something you can let me know and I manage to extend the series:
Windows Phone 7 Part #1: Getting Started (19/1/2011)
Windows Phone 7 Part #2: Your first app
Windows Phone 7 Part #3: Understanding navigation
Windows Phone 7 Part #4: The application lifecycle
Windows Phone 7 Part #5: Panorama and Pivot controls
Windows Phone 7 Part #6: Advanced interaction
Windows Phone 7 Part #7: Understanding Push Notifications
Windows Phone 7 Part #8: Using Sensors
As you can see the road is long, since many arguments are covered by the series. I hope you will enjoy reading them but as I've already said if you think there is something to change contact me or the SilverlightShow website and we evaluate your proposals.
