Windows Phone


- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Michael Lehman, and welcome to Windows Phone SDK Essential Training. In this course, I'll be walking you through app development, and showing you how to make the most of the Windows Phone OS and Microsoft's Toolkit. We'll start with a units converter with algorithms for temperature and volume. We'll build an audio recorder featuring a live VU meter that might be the basis for your own billion dollar idea. And, finally, what mobile app course would be complete without a monitor for Twitterfeeds? Ours features live tile support and a background agent to keep you up-to-date. Along the way, you'll see how to create compelling user experiences using metro design principles, construct multipage navigation schemes, use the built-in database engine, and access web-based data in both active apps and background agents.

Windows Phone is a unique and exciting platform with unlimited potential. So, let's get started with Windows Phone SDK Essential Training.
