Creating a Windows phone 7 application is easy. Creating a good one is a bit harder, especially in these early days, when developers are still learning the envelopes of the platform. Â To help new developers get up to speed fast, Justin Angel, aÂ former Microsoft Silverlight program manager, has started the Windows Phone 7 Development Best Practices Wiki.
What is this page?
This document represents current consensus around development best practices for Windows Phone 7.
These best practices are collaboratively developed and discussed by the WP7 developers community. As such, anyone may contribute.
This wiki page was initially edited and will continually go through quality assurance by former Microsoft Silverlight program managerÂ Justin Angel.Who is the target audience for this wiki?
Experienced Silverlight, WPF or WP7 Developers.If you’re new to Silverlight, never explored WP7 or a professorial designer then you’re unlikely to find this wiki to be a welcoming and promising start to your WP7 career.Rule of thumb: If you do not understand these best practices, you are most likely not the target audience for this document.“It’s ruined! It’s all gone terribly terribly wrong!”
