March 2012 Meeting

Real world Windows Phone Development

This talk complements an in-depth blog series titled RealWorldWPDev, currently consisting of six parts. The series walks through building a functioning, polished app (with full source code available), which will eventually be submitted to the marketplace.

The Series Introduction and Outline can be seen here.

Each of the parts will be discussed during the presentation, including topics ranging from:

  1. MVVM with Caliburn.Micro
  2. Solution Structure
  3. Creating a great panorama experience
  4. Creating and consuming web services
  5. Page navigation and passing complex state

Since this is probably a 200-300 level talk, you may need a basic understanding of MVVM and Silverlight (or basic windows phone development experience) to get the most out of the content.
