Microsoft MVPs Rob Miles and Andy Wigley are back! The "Building Applications for Windows Phone "Mango" Jump Start" was hosted by Microsoft Learning as a follow-up to last year's Windows Phone 7 Jump Start sessions. Mobile application developers rave about the fast-paced, demo-rich, real-world and often-times humorous approach Rob and Andy use to deliver this timely content. Now that "Mango" has made such a huge splash in the industry, we've asked them to put together another great course.

This course is specially tailored for developers looking to build cool applications and games for the new Windows Phone Mango Platform.

Andy takes the lead in module three and gets a bit deeper into using Silverlight to build Windows Phone applications. This demo-rich segment covers Silverlight Project Templates, the ApplicationBar, the best methods for Page Navigation, Data Binding and finishes with the powerful Silverlight Toolkit.
