  • Windows Phone 7 with Expression Blend

    0 comments  /  posted by  Silverlight Show  on  Nov 16, 2010 (1 week ago)

    Chris Koenig has a 30 minute video that walks you step-by-step through the process of using Expression Blend 4 to create a Silverlight application for Windows Phone 7.

    During Windows Phone 7 Developer Launch events, I hosted a 1/2 day Hands-on-Lab where we walked through building a Windows Phone 7 application in Silverlight from the ground-up using Expression Blend and Visual Studio 2010. I got lot of great comments about the session, and several requests for video recordings of the session so that people could watch it over and over again to learn the basics of building applications. I have now tried to faithfully recreate that session over on a new video I posted this morning to Channel 9.

  • OData v2 and Windows Phone 7

    0 comments  /  posted by  Silverlight Show  on  Nov 01, 2010 (4 weeks ago)
    In this post, Chris Koenig explains some of the changes made to the new OData stack which includes an update to the library for Windows Phone 7, and also shows you how to adapt your application to use the new library.

    Yesterday at PDC10, Scott Guthrie demonstrated a Windows Phone 7 application that he was building using Silverlight. During this time, he mentioned that a new OData stack had been released for .NET which included an update to the library for Windows Phone 7. Now you might think that this was just a regular old upgrade – you know… bug fixes, optimizations, etc. It was, but it also signaled a rewrite of the existing CTP that had been available for Windows Phone 7.

    Chris Koenig has created a new improved version of Shawn Oster’s excellent InputScopes demo.

    I have used Shawn Oster’s excellent InputScopes blog post and accompanying demo in the past when talking about Silverlight and the first revisions of the Windows Phone 7 dev tools, but noticed today when I was prepping for a talk that it no longer seems to work right with the Beta bits.

    After a little code spelunking, some dusting and even a little vacuuming, I seem to have arrived at a really nice V2 demo.

    Chris Koenig has published part 3 of 3 from his series on Windows Phone 7 and this last post is all about navigation.

    Out of the box, the Windows Phone 7 tools give you a pretty good starting place for your application. The List template is based on the MVVM pattern, includes some sample code to help you better visualize your solution, and two pages to get you started: main page (list of items) and details page (details for an item). In this post we’ll explore the page navigation options available to the WP7 developer, starting with the OOB experience.

    But first you may want to take a look at the previous two parts from the series:
    • Developing for Windows Phone 7
    • WP7 Part 2 – Working with Data

    This is the second part of Chris Koenig's series on Windows Phone 7 where he work towards building his first full-featured WP7 application. Part 1 was a “getting started” type of post, where Chris discussed installation of the tools and stuff you need to get started.

    For my first WP7 app, I have chosen to build a NerdDinner mobile client – NerdDinner ToGo. The application will allow us to find events that we’re interested in attending, and submit an RSVP for those we want to attend. We’ll also look into adding some social networking integration, perhaps with Twitter, or FourSquare, or similar. Eventually, the final application will use almost, if not all of the most compelling WP7 features such as notification, accelerometer & location sensors as well as all the “normal” stuff you’d expect to find in an application like this.

    Chris Koenig has published the first in a series of posts all about developing applications for Windows Phone 7 using Silverlight.

    I’m going to share with you my learning as I go through them, so that hopefully you can grow in experience along with me as you wait patiently for this Christmas when the WP7 devices will become available. My goal is to become an expert WP7 developer right in front of your very eyes!
