WP7 Guide

It’s finally here – I’ve just received my copy of “Windows Phone 7 Developer Guide – Building connected mobile applications with Microsoft Silverlight,”  a book that I worked on last year.

The book describes a scenario that uses Windows Phone 7 as a client platform for the Tailspin Surveys application that runs in Windows Azure (this cloud-based application is described in the previous book in the series “Developing Applications for the Cloud”), and focuses on building a Windows Phone 7 app that integrates with a range of cloud-hosted services.

The book will help you get started with Windows Phone 7 development, providing practical, real-world examples, and detailed discussions of the trade-offs and design decisions you may have to make. The sample application uses the MVVM design pattern, so if you want to learn more about that, then this book is a great place to start. To download the source code and read more, look here on MSDN.

We’ve now started work on the next project – extending the the “Guide to Claims-based Identity and Access Control” to include Windows Azure AppFabric Access Control Services and SharePoint in some of the scenarios.
