What are recommended reading for developing Windows Phone apps?

Posted by admin as Microsoft, Windows Phone

 

I would definitely start with Channel 9 videos. Videos are always better than reading to start with in my opinion. 

Here are several links that can help you get started.

Videos:

Windows Phone 7 Development for Absolute Beginners: http://channel9.msdn.com/Series/Windows-Phone-7-Development-for-Absolute-Beginners

Books:

Free Book and best one to start with: “Programming Windows Phone 7” available at http://www.charlespetzold.com/phone/

Decent Book: http://www.amazon.com/Windows-Phone-7-Plain-Simple/dp/0735643423

Links:

“Learning Resources”  section from http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff402535(VS.92).aspx 

 

And then practice writing apps with

101 Windows Phone 7 Apps

Volume 1: http://www.amazon.com/101-Windows-Phone-Apps-Developing/dp/0672335522/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1309816618&sr=1-2-spell

Volume 2: http://www.amazon.com/101-Windows-Phone-Apps-Developing/dp/0672335603/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1309816618&sr=1-1-spell

Oh and do not forget the “MS Patterns and Practices Windows phone Developer guide” at http://www.amazon.com/Windows-Phone-Developer-Guide-applications/dp/0735656096/ref=sr_1_45?ie=UTF8&qid=1309816346&sr=8-45
