Given how long Microsoft has been using XAML in one shape or another across a range of technologies (WPF, Silverlight, Windows Phone, XBox, Windows 8) it still surprises me how often I get asked about data binding. In this series we’re going to go back to basics and take a look at how to use data binding within you Window 8 and Windows Phone application. For the most part I’ll focus on Windows Phone but data binding across these platforms is relatively similar, so a lot of the concepts will carry across without me having to give multiple examples. Additionally, most of these concepts will apply equally well to data binding in Silverlight or WPF.
