Windows Phone 7 for Absolute Beginners

Windows Phone 7 for Absolute Beginners is a fantastic video series from Bob Tabor, posted on Channel 9. Below is the course description:

“This video series will help aspiring Windows Phone 7 developers get started. We’ll start off with the basics and work our way up, so in a few hours you will know enough to build simple WP7 applications, such as a GPS aware note taking application. We’ll walk you through getting the tools, knowing what an if statement is, to using the GPS built into the phone and much more!”

The videos are just my speed, slow, well thought out, and Bob does a great job of explaining WHY to do something rather than just dropping in 200 lines of code from a snippet and telling you, “it’s just basic stuff, we won’t cover this”.

If you are new to programming, particularly C#, XAML, and Windows Phone, I think you’ll find this series of videos very helpful. He starts you off with the very basics and works up to developing a note application.
