C# Windows Phone 7 Foundation

5 Days


The C# for Windows Phone 7 Foundation course encompasses the use of the Visual Studio 2010 environment to develop mobile application software for the Windows Phone 7 platform using the Visual C# language. The course starts with an overview of  the dotNET platform, an exploration of the Visual Studio IDE (Integrated Development Environment), Expression Blend and Silverlight Tools, and an introduction to the Windows Phone 7 Emulator. We look at how to structure solutions and projects, the types of  project templates available and the role of the various files that comprise our solution.


Following this, we cover the language features that are needed in order to create full featured Phone applications that make best use of the .NET platform. Delegates learn about data types, variables, and operators, along with the important flow control structures. Delegates work through several practical examples which which reinforce the theory and  demonstrate the power of the .NET Framework. Other topics covered include object-orientation and creating classes and objects, working with data structures, such as arrays and collection classes, generics, handling exceptions and working with delegates and events.


This is primarily a C# training course set in the context of  Windows Phone development - thus we tend to focus on a different set of  issues than does our other C# Foundation course. Here we do focus upon the specific aspects of the Windows Phone 7 architecture and language features that are particularly relevant to the characteristics of mobile development. On completion of this course, attendees will understand the important basic concepts that enable the creation of  professional applications  using a variety of .NET technologies and be able to address the particular features and needs of mobile applications.



This C# for Windows Phone 7 Foundation training course assumes that students have some programming background. No specific

experience with Visual Studio, the .NET Framework, object-oriented programming or C# is assumed. The course is not recommended for individuals with previous C# experience as considerable focus is upon basic language features.


Who Should Attend

This course is directed at individuals with some previous exposure to programming, possibly in a non-object-oriented paradigm, who wish to master both the Visual Studio environment and a Visual, object-oriented, style of development using the C# (C Sharp) language. Particularly suitable for career-break re-entrants to the profession and to developers wishing to cross-train from other languages.


For experienced C# programmers who wish to acquire Windows Phone development skills, we are developing a more advanced and specific course, details will be available shortly.
