Windows Phone 7 is the Mobile OS from Microsoft that was launched last year .
The Windows Phone 7 Marketplace has more than 25000 App and still going strong . Now with the announcement of the WIndows Phone Mango ( Beta ) and SDK . Looks like Developers need to know a bit more about the API and get the complete use of the SDK .
There are quite a lot of Resources that can help the Developers ( preferably the startup developers ) to kick start the Windows Phone Development .
Here comes the list of 8 websites that i feel are really worth checking out .
It cant get better for Developers when the Developers have the proper developer / API guide . Yes its the MSDN which contains lot of valuable resources like How To , Class Library Reference . Code Samples .
Simply put together , an MSDN for developer is more than enough for a developer to kick start WP7 Development .
A book in the online format that helps the developers to get familiar on how to develop , design and implement Applications for Windows Phone 7 .
Although the Book talks about Windows Phone 7 ,lot of concepts still hold good for Windows Phone 7.5 / 7.1 too . Hopefullt Microsoft updates it for the newer version .
Although targetted at the Intermediate Developers , this one is a great resource with some sample App / Hands on lab that showcase Local Database support and Alerts and Reminders
