Microsoft has announced that it will now offer more free online training for building Windows Phone 7 applications and games. The new training content is available on Channel 9 and on Zune.net, or by subscribing to Zune Marketplace or iTunes. The training includes a total of 19 video sessions, plus digital course materials to match and expand upon that video content. Please check the Microsoft Born to Learn blog “More Free Training…” for more information and a description of each of the new sessions.
In addition to these new training courses, Microsoft also offers a free ebook titled, Programming Windows Phone 7, which teaches readers the basics of writing applications for Windows Phone 7. Famed long-time programming author Charles Petzold wrote this book, in complete cahoots with the Microsoft Windows Phone 7 development team. It promises to be a worthwhile read, and the price is right, too!
