    Last November Microsoft released its brand new Windows Phone 7 operating system, and many of you may have already bought one of the many models it can be found on the market. If you are, like me, passionate of tech-toys, probably you have already started to play with it, downloading tons of applications from the marketplace and you have permeated your life with the beautiful features of this phone. Now, since if you are reading this pages probably you are also passionate about programming with Silverlight, it is the right moment to get deeply in touch with your phone discovering how you can write your own applications, test them on your device and finally publish them to the marketplace to possibly start earn some money, I'm pretty sure you will use to buy your next toy.

    This article is Part 0 of the series “XNA for Silverlight developers”:


    Around the time the first Windows Phone 7 devices were released to the market, one popular sentence you heard was "every Silverlight developer is a Windows Phone 7 developer" – and that's true. Silverlight is Microsoft's main platform to do Windows Phone 7 development, and every desktop Silverlight programmer will feel comfortable in the new mobile programming environment instantly. Sure there are differences and libraries specific to the devices, but you won't have to learn a new programming language or new ways to define your UI, and you can use the same development environment you've been using for normal Silverlight development all the time.

          2. Beginners Guide to Visual Studio LightSwitch (Part – 2) – Working with Search Screen

      Visual Studio LightSwitch is a new tool for building data-driven Silverlight Application using Visual Studio IDE. It automatically generates the User Interface for a DataSource without writing any code. You can write a small amount of code also to meet your requirement.

      Recently, I got some time to explore Visual Studio LightSwitch. I created a small DB application with proper data inserting UI within a small amount of time (without any XAML or C# code).

      Here in this article, I will guide you to understand it with the help of a small application.

      Sharepoint 2010 is a powerful platform for organisations that want to manage their data in a more efficient way. Some of the key features include document management and collaboration tools, content management and social networking and so on. Since it is essentially a browser-based web platform, why not use Silverlight to offer the users a better experience? The same question probably came up to the Microsoft engineers’ mind when they deliberated the new features of Sharepoint 2010; in fact, with this release a new Client Object Model has been included to allow client applications like Silverlight to interact with Sharepoint data.

      In my previous post “Introduction to Shapes in Silverlight 4” I introduced you with various types of Shapes available in Silverlight 4 and informed you that, I will post an article describing each one of them and here it is.

      In this article, I am going to describe you about each shapes and the process to add them in our application (whenever you need). This article is for the Beginners, who don’t know much about the shape controls. If you have any suggestions/concerns please use the feedback section to let me know.

      This article is Part 2 of the series Sketchflow from a developer point of view:

      1. SketchFlow from a developer point of view - Part I - Basics 
      2. SketchFlow from a developer point of view - Part II - Dev Stuff


      Sketchflow is a great tool for prototyping, that’s great for designers, but… for developers? of course !!!

      In this article we are going to step through Sketchflow functionality from the point of view of a developer.

      To check how Sketchflow works we will:

      • Simulate the startup of simple project: a  local community web site, that will hold news / events / members plus and admin area.
      • Insert video snippets in between the article to show how to perform certain operations using Sketchflow.

      If you haven’t developed Windows Phone applications yet, Brian has posted some resources for getting started.

      I’ve gotten the Windows Phone App fever. The past few days I’ve been creating my first Silverlight applications for Windows Phone and I have to say I’m impressed with the development environment and the emulator.  I’ve done a lot a work with Windows CE and Windows Mobile in the past, so I've seen my fair share of device emulators, and the Windows Phone emulator is very nice and easy to use.

      To MEF or not to MEF?

      Did you ever wanted to build a modular application? You know when you program against interfaces rather than actual implementation, and the implementation is likely to change anytime? The implementation resides in building blocks and you can just replace these building blocks whenever you want. Or maybe you wanted to build an extensible application that can work nicely with plug-ins. I could go on and on with examples but in general, we can say that we have an application and a couple of modules, extensions, building blocks, whatever, and we just want to ”plug” them into our application, without writing any more plumbing code or applying any modification.
