With plenty of images and code wherever necessary, this book will take you just a few days to get up to speed, no long weekend classes, no bible to read, a few chapters and you are off. If you are a developer who wants to develop apps for the Windows Phone 7 platform, but do not know where to begin, then this book is for you.
