I have uploaded the content from my Introduction to Windows Phone 7 Development with Silverlight talk at the New England Visual Basic Professionals meeting in Waltham on December 2. There content can be found here, and includes:
- Presentation slides, which include the reference and event 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 and 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.
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
