Abstract

The Windows Phone 8 platform pulls upon previous Microsoft technologies. If you’ve ever used .Net before, you can build a Windows Phone app. If you are an iOS or Android developer, you will find that developing for Windows Phone to be an easy transition for your existing mobile skills. I will guide you through creating a very basic app, and will also show you, in code, how to leverage Windows Phone’s unique features and hardware.
