Last summer we told you boys and girls about this really great video series up on Channel 9. The series was called ‘Windows Phone 8 Development for Absolute Beginners’. It was an 11+ hour series that taught absolute beginners how to develop for Windows Phone 8. Now there’s a sequel up on Channel 9 that will do the same for Windows Phone 8.1.
Bob Tabor, Larry Lieberman and Matthias Shapiro are back to teach you all about developing for Windows Phone 8.1. The series is again aimed at beginners and will teach you the basics of things like:
- Windows Phone UI with XAML layout and events
- Navigation model
- Application lifecycle
- Working with the Windows Phone Emulator
- Understanding MVVM (Model-View-ViewModel)
- HTML apps in the WebView
- Media (Video/Audio with the MediaElement control)
The series will walk you through building five different apps and covers a range of scenarios. You’ll even learn how to make that Windows Phone app a universal Windows app to target Windows 8.1.
Anyone at all interested in developing apps for Windows Phone 8.1 is encouraged to check out the free videos. We’re excited to see a host of new developers on Windows Phone get started through Channel 9 and we can’t wait to see what you build.
