Bring Your iPhone Apps and Skills to Windows Phone 7-or Build Apps for Both Mobile Platforms at Once

If you've been developing for the crowded iPhone marketplace, this book will help you leverage your iOS skills on a fast-growing new platform: Windows Phone 7 (WP7). If you're a .NET programmer, it will help you build advanced WP7 mobile solutions that reflect valuable lessons learned by iPhone developers. If you're a mobile development manager, it offers indispensable insights for planning cross-platform projects.

Kevin Hoffman guides you through the entire WP7 SDK, showing how it resembles Apple's iOS SDK, where it differs, and how to build production-quality WP7 apps that sell. Step by step, you'll master each technology you'll need, including C#, Silverlight and XAML. Every new concept is introduced along with all the tools and background needed to apply it.

Hoffman's practical insights extend into every facet of WP7 development: building user interfaces; hardware and device services; WP7's unique Application Tiles; Push Notifications; the Phone Execution Model, local storage, smart clients, MVVM design, security, social gaming, testing, debugging, deployment, and more. A pleasure to read and packed with realistic examples, this is the most useful Windows Phone 7 development book you can find.

Review quote

"Now, armed with results of the CSI, advisors can know their advisees much better than before. A rather casual approach to advisement has been bolstered by more careful measures of students' motivation levels, academic aptitude, and receptivity to support services."

--Virginia Zank, Associate Prof of English at Missouri Valley College
