Two days ago I had the pleasure to be the Speaker at ITSchool, and event organized by Aiesec for the Timisoara students.
In the classroom(because it was organized in one of the schools) I had a group of very interested students from first to third year at Politehnica Timisoara. After one of our discussions I promised that I will publish a list of resources and places from where to start learning Windows Phone 8 Apps development. You can find my slides on SlideShare.
And here are the first elements:
First step is to go to the Get Started page from MSDN and do install the software described there
If you are a C# absolute beginner and you want to start learning it start with the next videos
After you have on your computer everything installed go to Channel 9 Jump Start Videos and take some time to pass through all the features Windows Phone 8 has
3bis. You can find the videos and the slides also on Microsoft virtual academy
Start doing the demos
Play by your own and ask the Stackoverflow community if needed
Have an idea and build your own application :)
Have fun and enjoy coding :)
@ My Students: See you next week and I hope you will have the same enthusiasm and a little bit of time to start viewing the previous documentations.
