Quite a while ago when I started doing Windows Phone 7 development I was looking for a good book to start with and I bought the Beginning Windows Phone 7 Development book written by Henry Lee and Eugene Chuvyrov. This turned out to be a very good choice, the book covers the most important parts of Windows Phone 7 development, filled with good code examples and is well written.

The book consists of two parts, 19 chapters and 458 pages.

Part 1: The Essentials of Windows Phone 7 Application Development

  • Introducing Windows Phone 7 and the Windows Phone Platform
  • Building Windows Phone 7 Applications
  • Using Cloud Services As Data Stores
  • Catching and Debugging Errors
  • Packaging, Publishing and Managing Applications

Part 2: Using Windows Phone 7 Technologies

  • Working with the Accelerometer
  • Application Bar
  • WebBrowser Control
  • Working with Controls and Themes
  • Integrating Applications with the Windows Phone OS
  • Creating Trial Applications
  • Internationalization
  • Isolated Storage
  • Using Location Services
  • Media
  • Working with the Camera and Photos
  • Push Notifications
  • Reactive Extensions for .NET
  • Security

As you can see from the chapters this book is suitable for both beginners and experienced Windows Phone 7 developers.

    Are you kidding? This book istotal garbage. Spelling and grammar errors aside, the development knowledge given in this book terrible. I don’t think a developer even wrote this, more like a teenager who’s just copying an online tutorial.

  2. Hi Derrick F.
    I’m not kidding, I found the book useful with plenty of good and working code examples.
