I have uploaded the content from my Introduction to Windows Phone 7 Development with Silverlight talk at the New Hampshire (Concord) .Net User Group meeting last night in Concord. The content can be found here, and includes:
· Presentation slides, which include the reference links I mentioned during the talk.
· The sample code, broken into 2 projects. Because the Notification Services portion of the talk adds extra projects to the solution ad is a little more complex to build and launch, that portion has been broken out into its own separate zip file.
For the Notification Services portion of the demo, the web project should be launched first, followed by the phone project (since the phone app calls the web site to register its URL for receiving notifications.) If the solution is run with the web project set as the default start project, the application bits do get deployed to the phone, but the debugger is not hooked up (unless multiple startup projects are used.) If debugging of the phone app is desired, it can be achieved by right clicking on the phone project and selecting Debug / Start New Instance. Also, this time the Notification Services demo includes the Push Notification Server-Side Helper recipe.
As usual, I have “sanitized” the uploaded code content by removing my personal Bing Maps application key. For information on how to obtain your own map key, please check out the Bing Maps Developer Portal.
Many thanks to Patty Tomkins for organizing the user group and the event, the folks at NHTI for providing a great venue, Jim O’Neil from Microsoft for providing the Windows Phone swag, as well as to all of the attendees. We had some “minor technical issues” to overcome with getting the projectors set up (I need to remember to add a 10’ VGA cable to my standard presentation traveling kit), but once we hijacked another cable and got past that problem, everything went great.
