I’m happy to announce that, last week, Syncfusion, a popular company among developers for their great suites of controls, has released my new book titled Windows Phone 8 Development Succinctly. It’s a digital free e-book and, in 243 pages, it covers most of the important concepts to develop a Windows Phone application, from the basic ones (like the XAML, the application lifecycle, etc.) to the most advanced ones (like background tasks, geolocalization and speech APIs).
Here is a quick recap of the chapters:
- The User Interface: Basic XAML Concepts
- Core Concepts
- Data Access: Storage
- Data Access: Network
- Integrating with the Hardware
- Integrating with the Operating System
- Multimedia Applications
- Live Apps: Tiles, Notifications, and Multitasking
- Distributing the Application: Localization, the Windows Phone Store, and In-App Purchases
The book is distributed by Syncfusion for free, you just have to register and then you’ll be able to download it both in PDF and Kindle format. I hope that the book can be a great resource both for new developers, that want to start learning the basic Windows Phone concepts, and for already skilled developers, that can use the book as a reference for all the APIs and features offered by the platform.
So don’t waste anymore time and head to http://www.syncfusion.com/resources/techportal/ebooks/windowsphone8 to register and download your free copy!
