Learn to develop for Windows Phone 7

Do you want to start developing applications for Windows Phone 7? Good news! Microsoft together with Charles Petzold has released a Free E-book called “Programming Windows Phone 7.

This book is divided into three parts.

  • The first part discusses basic concepts of Windows Phone 7 programming using example programs that target both Silverlight and the XNA framework.
  • The second part of this book focuses entirely on Silverlight
  • The third part on XNA 2D

The book has a lot of code examples which are available for download here

This book is a gift from the Windows Phone 7 team at Microsoft to the programming community and YES, Programming Windows Phone 7 is truly a free download.
The book will also be available for sale on paper, for those who prefer to read a book the old fashion way.

I’ve personally used this book as a reference when working on applications and I would like to thank Charles and his team for a great book.
