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.
Rob leads module six and a series of valuable demonstrations covering how to leverage Windows Phone resources. In this session, you'll learn how to use Contacts and Calendars, Launchers and Choosers, then Rob will show a variety of ways to use the Windows Phone Camera, including taking still images and manipulating the video stream. Next, you'll see how to use resources such as the Windows Phone Microphone, Sensors, the Motion sensor, and video content. Finally, Rob finishes the session with some great demonstrations on how to leverage Bing Maps.
