Free ebook: Programming Windows Phone 7, by Charles Petzold – Microsoft Press – Site Home – MSDN Blogs

Posted by jpluimers on 2010/11/10

If you want to do Windows Phone 7 development, then get this book: Programming Windows Phone 7 by Charles Petzod.
The eBook and source code are free:

This book is a gift from the Windows Phone 7 team at Microsoft to the programming community, and I am proud to have been a part of it. Within the pages that follow, I show you the basics of writing applications for Windows Phone 7 using the C# programming language with the Silverlight and XNA 2D frameworks.

Yes, Programming Windows Phone 7 is truly a free download, but for those readers who still love paper—as I certainly do—this book will also be available (for sale)

In addition to C# and VB.NET, you can also do this in Delphi Prism.

Cool times ahead, because now there are 4 major competitors (in no particular order):

  • iPhone
  • Android
  • Windows Phone 7
  • Symbian

I left out the competitors of the past, as they soon will be deprecated.
