New Windows Phone SDK and BUILD videos

Microsoft have release the new Windows Phone  SDK for developers to use to develop apps for Windows Phone Mango.  The SDK includes:

  • Visual Studio 2010 Express for Windows Phone
  • Expression Blend 4
  • Simulator and Deployment tools
  • Extensions for XNA Game Studio
  • SDK’s for Silverlight 4, WCF (Windows Communication Foundation) Data Services Client and Microsoft Advertising.

You can download it from the Microsoft Download Center.

Once downloaded you might want some help with using the tools.  One area to get help could be the videos at Channel9, which is microsofts video library.  The recent Microsoft BUILD conference was mostly focussed on the coming WIndows 8 platform but there were several session on Windows Phone development too.

Click here to see the Windows Phone session videos from BUILD.

The list of session I found is:

  • Windows Phone XAML apps
  • Windows Phone multitasking
  • Windows Phone: how to build a game
  • Windows Phone app performance and optimization
  • Windows Phone user experience design
  • Windows Phone: building apps that customers love, end to end
  • Windows Phone: building optimized websites and using the web browser control with IE9
  • It’s not a great phone app without ASP.NET services and push notifications
  • Progressively enable the mobile web with ASP.NET MVC 4, HTML5, and jQuery Mobile
  • Building device & cloud apps

About bluechrism

I am a software developer with most professional experience in the Windows .Net realm and I'm currently a WPF developer with Starkey Labs. However, I have wanted for some time to start the mobile developer journey properly and being an N900 owner, this was to be in the realm of QT. Job hunting, moving to Minnesota and changing jobs put my plans on hold 6-12 months but things are starting to settle now, just as I'm getting sorted to start some things, Microsoft and Nokia merge. This blog is about my novice mobile development experiences and hopefully will end up complete with links to download some apps on various platforms, but obviously by the name, Sybian, Maemo/Meego and Windows Mobile. In other stuff, I am English, I support Everton FC, I have visited Glastonbury music festival 5 times and recommend it to anyone. I am married and my wife and i have a dog called Friday.
