About this product
- DescriptionWindows Phone 7 provides an exciting new opportunity for companies and developers to build applications that travel with the user, are interactive and attractive, and are available whenever and wherever that users wishes to work with the application. By combining Windows Phone 7 applications with on-premises services and applications, or remote services and applications that run in the cloud (such as those using the Windows Azure(TM) platform), developers can create highly scalable, reliable, and powerful applications that extend the functionality beyond the traditional desktop or laptop; and into a truly portable and much more accessible environment. This book describes a scenario around a fictitious company named Tailspin that has decided to encompass Windows Phone 7 as a client device for their existing cloud-based application. Their Windows Azure based Surveys application is described in detail in a previous book in this series: Developing Applications for the Cloud on the Microsoft Windows Azure Platform . As well as describing the client application, its integration with the remote services, and the decisions made during its design and implementation, this book discusses related factors such as the design patterns used, the capabilities and use of Windows Phone 7, and the ways that the application could be extended or modified for other scenarios. The result is that, after reading this book, you will be familiar with how to design and implement applications for Windows Phone 7 that take advantage of remote services to obtain and upload data, while providing a great user experience on the device.
- Author BiographyDominic Betts is an expert with the patterns & practices team & other Microsoft(R) groups. Federico Boerr is a consultant with Southworks SRL. Scott Densmore is an expert with the patterns & practices team & other Microsoft(R) groups. Jose Gallardo Salazar is a consultant with Clarius Consulting. Alex Homer is a technical writer assigned to the Microsoft patterns & practices division in Redmond. Following a career within and outside of the IT world, including an eclectic range of jobs from tractor driver to double-glazing salesman, he spent many years as a software and training specialist before tiring of the conference circuit and joining Microsoft. However, he has so far resisted the dubious attractions of Seattle weather in favor of working from home in the idyllic rural surroundings of the Derbyshire Dales in the heart of England. Now he spends his days knee-deep in design patterns and architectural literature; writing books, documentation, sample code, and producing technical guidance in its myriad other forms-most of which is helpfully co-authored by two over-inquisitive cats. His weekly semi-coherent ramblings on the IT industry, and life in general, can be found at http://blogs.msdn.com/alexhomer/.
