PDX Code Camp Session: WP7 Tips & Tricks

Posted on May 23, 2010

I presented the Windows Phone 7 Tips & Tricks session with Allen Newton yesterday at Portland Code Camp.  Good times.  In our talk we showed a sample application “PDX Chow” that demonstrates a number of phone development concepts:

  • MVVMwinphone architecture with Laurent Bugnion’s MVVM Light
  • Panorama control
  • Inversion of Control / Dependency Injection
  • Navigation using commanding and context
  • Page orientation events
  • Accessing phone features with tasks
  • ApplicationBar wrapper class that is fully Blendable and supports attached behaviors
  • Application life-cycle events
  • Accessing WCF services

The slide deck and code for the sample app are available on the downloads page.  Enjoy!
