This important session covers what you as a developer need to include in your application development process in order to get your application through the marketplace certification process. It covers how applications work in the Windows Phone environment, the application lifecycle, lifecycle events and using Local Storage state object. The goal is to help developers ensure that users have a good experience with the application.

The Windows Phone 7 Jump Start video training is for all developers interested in developing applications or games for the new Windows Phone 7 Platform. The ~14 ½ hour course is based on the Microsoft Windows Phone 7 Developer Training Kit and taught by Microsoft MVP's and Microsoft Press Authors, Andy Wigley and Rob S. Miles. The Designing for Windows Phone 7 session is taught my Microsoft Design experts, Jon Harris and Bryan Agnetta.  The training is wrapped up with an audio podcast with a panel of Microsoft experts answering the questions posed throughout the training.

Watch these entertaining sessions and complete the labs found on Channel 9 (https://channel9.msdn.com/learn/courses/WP7TrainingKit/) to gain development skills using both Microsoft XNA and Microsoft Silverlight.

The Discussion

    the example in the training Kit does not work properly.
    The set Focus function will not work after reactivating, because Focus() called in 'OnNavigatedTo' method, but the site is not loaded completely at this time. I have declared the var 'focusedElement' as an instance var and set it (if it is set) in the 'Default_Loaded' event handler.

    Again bad sound quality.
