Adam Nathan, a developer at Microsoft, has written a book to help developers get a quick leg up on developing apps for Windows Phone 7.
The book concentrates on learning through doing, and each tutorial results in an application suitable for submitting to the Windows phone 7 marketplace, in fact 101 applications in total, teaching neophyte developers about controls, layout, events, data binding, resources, styles, custom controls, and much more.
The book is organized into 2 volumes, and volume one, which results in 50 apps, covers:
- Part I: Getting Started
- Part II: Transforms & Animations
- Part III: Storing & Retrieving Local Data
- Part IV: Pivot & Panorama
- Part V: Audio & Video
- Part VI: Microphone
- Part VII: Touch & Multi-Touch
- Part VIII: Accelerometer
Volume 1 is $34.64 on Amazon, and for a new developer wanting to join the Windows phone 7 gold rush it sounds well worth it.
