After TechEd, various internal events and some pretty nifty demos from the guys at Readify, its about time I stopped playing with emulators and wrote something. This post contains a bunch of developer readiness resources to help me and perhaps you, get started. First off some of the pre and post TechEd AU press
- Microsoft Tech.Ed 2010: all about Phone 7 (ZDnet)
- Microsoft goes Willy Wonka for Windows Phone 7 giveaways at Tech.Ed Australia 2010 (Long Zheng, istartedsomething.com)
- Microsoft aims to gain ground with Windows Phone 7 (International Business Times)
- Hands on with Windows Phone 7 down under (Gizmodo)
Thanks to Andy Reay for sending me some early developer book links:
- Charles Petzold's book on Windows Phone 7 is available as a free download. See the MS Press blog entry
2. Also see this sampler of Laurence Moroney’s forthcoming book, Silverlight 4 Step by Step.
3. Another excerpt specifically around Silverlight 4 for Windows Phone 7 might also be of interest
