Dmitry Lyalin, my co-host on the Connected Show, recently developed a Windows Phone 7 application for Leo Laporte’s This Week In Tech (TWiT) network. The application recently reached as high as #2 on the Top Rated Apps list in the marketplace!

Dmitry spoke at the January 2011 meeting of the New York City Silverlight Meetup about his experience developing this application.  Dmitry walked folks through the phone tool experience, how he developed the TWiT application, and the challenges he faced.

Revealed in his talk were several tips, tricks, and "gotchas" every Windows Phone developer will want to know about.

Luckily for you, we were able to record this presentation and make it available for your viewing pleasure here on Channel 9!

    Great subject.  Love Twit and Dmitry's work on the Twit app. However poor audio turned this presentation to useless.  Next time please use a decent microphone if you plan to record your presentation and display it on Channel 9.

    I want to thank everyone who watched this presentation and say sorry for the bad audio quality. This recording was not planned originally so once we decided to "just do it" the audio capture device options were very limited Sad.

    I and others do have access to much better microphones and plan to do more recordings on this topic in the future so stay tuned!
