Microsoft WP7 Team: Free EBook ‘Programming Windows Phone 7’ now Available!

Are you the Windows Phone 7 developer or want to know how to create WP7 apps? Then this book is meant for you.

This book is a gift from the Windows Phone 7 team at Microsoft to the programming community.

Programming Windows Phone 7 is truly a free download, but for those readers who still love paper the book will also be available (for sale) divided into two fully-indexed print editions: Microsoft Silverlight Programming for Windows Phone 7 and Microsoft XNA Framework Programming for Windows Phone 7.

The book is divided into three parts.

The first part discusses basic concepts of Windows Phone 7 programming using example programs that target both Silverlight and the XNA framework.

The second part of the book focuses entirely on Silverlight, and the third part on XNA 2D.

To use this book properly you’ll need to download and install the Windows Phone Developer Tools, which includes Visual Studio 2010 Express for Windows Phone, XNA Game Studio 4.0, and an on-screen Windows Phone Emulator to test your programs in the absence of an actual device.
