Quite a while ago when I started doing Windows Phone 7 development I was looking for a good book to start with and I bought the Beginning Windows Phone 7 Development book written by Henry Lee and Eugene Chuvyrov. This turned out to be a very good choice, the book covers the most important parts of Windows Phone 7 development, filled with good code examples and is well written.

The book consists of two parts, 19 chapters and 458 pages.

Part 1: The Essentials of Windows Phone 7 Application Development

  • Introducing Windows Phone 7 and the Windows Phone Platform
  • Building Windows Phone 7 Applications
  • Using Cloud Services As Data Stores
  • Catching and Debugging Errors
