“FOREWORD

All the praises and gratitude to Allah SWT for the chance and the strength to compile and finish this e-book titled “Silverlight for Windows Phone: LEARN & PRACTICE”. It has been a enjoyable journey because Windows Phone is Microsoft’s latest mobile platform that is fascinating for end users, and for developers as well. I also like to express my gratitude to Ronald Rajagukguk, for his introduction to the community, and for being an inspiration to keep learning, and always look for opportunities of self-improvement.

WHAT WE CAN LEARN

  • Windows Phone Overview
  • Using Windows Phone Development Tools
  • Silverlight on Windows Phone
  • Specific Features on Windows Phone
  • Developing a Simple Windows Phone Application

TARGET READER

This e-book is written for those who want to get to know, use, and develop applications for Windows Phone, Microsoft’s latest mobile platform. Of course, it would be naive to consider that this e-book covers the topic about Windows Phone entirely, but it can undoubtedly give you a good basic to learn. In this e-book you will not find topics that require advanced hardware supports such as multi-touch or FM, because this e-book is written based on the available emulator.

The readers are assumed to at least understand the C# programming language. Readers are also expected to have used Visual Studio. An understanding in Silverlight is also advisable.
Wise men say, “you bind knowledge by writing them”; therefore this e-book is dedicated to community members, and hopefully will be of use for us all.

Enjoy! :)

As someone who makes spelling mistakes all the time, I shouldn't laugh...

But once I saw what you meant, I had to laugh (in the shared pain/sympathetic sort of way... ;)
