Congratulations, you made it to the end of another video series. That's no small task—it took a lot of commitment to do that, not to mention time and attention, but hopefully you enjoyed the series and were compiling ideas for building your own apps and gaining confidence—not to mention the knowledge of the API, the techniques for working in the Visual Studio IDE and the Phone Emulator, and so on.
Moving forward, I recommend a few things ...
I want to sincerely thank Randy Arnold, who is a Nokia Developer Ambassador in my area, for taking me under his wing and explaining Nokia's strategy, showing me how DVLUP works and why it's a great opportunity for developers as well as how it supports the Windows Phone 8 platform.
I want to thank Larry Lieberman and Desiree Lockwood for their support in getting me the assets I needed for this series.
As always, thanks to Golnaz and Dan Fernandez because they're always awesome.
And most of all, thanks to Clint Rutkas who is "the man". Not only did he do most of the heavy lifting up front by building these great apps, which we had the pleasure of learning from, he also patiently answered over a hundred emails from me asking for help and guidance as I was learning the new features of the Windows Phone 8 as well as his approach and thought process as he set out to build these apps. It was a valuable learning experience for me, and hopefully for you, too.
If you like what we did here and want more like it, make sure you let Channel 9 and Microsoft know. They will get you the resources you want.
And if you liked this series, there's plenty more where this came from. Please take 3 minutes to check out my website:
... where I have tons of video training just like this on a wide variety of .NET topics.
Finally, thank you for your kind attention and as we part ways I sincerely wish you the best. Let me know what you've built—I'd love to check it out. If I can ever help, email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
