Today I Shall Mostly Be Reading…


9780735643352x…Programming Windows Phone 7 by Charles Petzold.

Given it runs to over 1000 pages I may overrun into tomorrow as well.

In case you didn’t see the announcement, Charles Petzold’s latest book on Windows Phone 7 is available as a free (yes free) eBook. That’s the whole book, not an abridged version or some sample chapters.

You can download it as PDF or XPS and you can also download the sample code.

If you’ve not yet looked at WP7 development, and this gives you the incentive, don’t forget you can download all you need to get started in the form of the Windows Phone Developer Tools.

    Why not go Meta and actually read it on your phone? 🙂

    I was just wondering about the best way I might be able to do that 🙂

    Acrobat Reader, and phone on landscape isn't too bad.

    Yes, that's exactly what I did. Agreed, it's pretty good. Mike
