Getting ready for Windows Phone 7


Published on

These slides were originally presented at the .NET User Group October 2010 meeting.

Come spend some time with Windows Phone 7, Visual Studio 2010, Expression Blend and learn everything you’ll need to know to get started writing your killer application for the Windows Phone. We’ll skip the fluff and dive right into writing a Silverlight-based application for Windows Phone 7. Topics will include application architecture, navigation, application bars and menus, application icons and live tiles, isolated storage, web service consumption, and tombstoning best practices.
