Introduction to Windows Phone 7 Development

By now, you should already have heard of Microsoft's new Windows Phone 7 mobile OS. And while many developers are busy developing for Android and iPhone, Microsoft is hard at work, developing its killer mobile OS that could give the competitors a run for the money. Before you dismiss Microsoft as a serious contender in the mobile space, think again. The new OS is now a total rewrite of the older Windows Mobile platform, and sports many features that you have come to expect of a modern mobile operating system.

In this series of Windows Phone 7 articles on mobiForge, I will bring you on a development journey to explore the full capabilities of the new operating system. And in this first installment, we will explore the tools and see how you could start writing your first application quickly.

Apps published by participants of my iPhone courses

One of the greatest rewards of doing training is when you see the participants of your courses putting into use the skills you shared with them. One such participant is Ian Wen, who attended my Foundation of iPhone course earlier this year. He was recently featured in The Sunday Times (17th Oct 2010) for his work on creating a number of apps for the iPhone.

Check out Ian's app here:
Great job, Ian!
