    Creating SilverlightShow Windows Phone App: Ebook

    Product Description

    This e-book collects the 4 parts of SilverlightShow article series 'Creating the SilverlightShow Windows Phone Application' authored by Peter Kuhn.

    From the author: At the end of February, the official SilverlightShow Windows Phone app has been accepted into the Marketplace. The app gives you access to some of the content of this website, including news, articles and events, and is completely free for use (also ad-free!). Some of the convenience features include the possibility to create reminders for upcoming events and webinars directly on your phone, to get notifications about new content in the form of live tiles, and to maintain a local list of favorites that allows you to permanently store items for later reading. If you haven’t checked out the app yet, you can find more details and a quick intro video here, or visit its Marketplace page here.

    The creation of the app was an interesting experience, because unlike other phone projects I had worked on in the past, this one wasn’t a greenfield development. Obviously the SilverlightShow portal already existed, had a long-established production infrastructure and already a lot of existing content available.

    This e-book collects all 3 parts of SilverlightShow article series on using OData and Azure in Windows Phone, together with source code.

    From the author: 

    Windows Azure & Windows Phone seem to be two very popular technologies out of Redmond right now.

    There is obviously a lot of buzz around cloud infrastructure involving Azure solutions and the wonderful developer story that we have for Windows Phone development. But, should these two platforms work together & if so, can they? How can you as a Mobile/Windows Phone developer utilize the cloud?

    In the first chapter, we talk about how to leverage Windows Azure to supplement our Windows Phone application. In particular, we will see how SQL Azure can be rather beneficial in providing globally accessible & scalable backend for mobile solutions on Windows Phone & other disparate platforms. The key link we shall leverage is OData Services for providing cross-platform read/write access to a central data repository...

    Coming soon...

    Product Description

    This book offers everything you'll need to upgrade your existing programming knowledge and begin to develop applications for the Windows Phone 7. 

    It focuses on the 75 percent of the material that you will need 95 percent of the time.
