In this training, you will learn how to create a complete puzzle game for Windows Phone. The game is available for download in the Marketplace, so you can test the final result directly on your own phone. Even though it is a simple game, its development covers a large number of the topics specific to the phone platform. It shows how to use and work with both Visual Studio and Expression Blend, explains how to apply the MVVM pattern, teaches best practices and how to do unit testing on the phone. This training goes beyond the usual tutorials and covers a comprehensive list of surrounding topics too, for example advertising options in Windows Phone applications, profiling and analyzing performance problems, details about the submission process to the Marketplace, and more. Even better, in the end you will have the full source code to a complete application with some nice reusable components, all licensed under the Ms-PL so it can be used free of charge and without limitations in any of your own projects.
The first part of the training is based on Windows Phone "Mango" (7.1/7.5), the last part covers what's new in Windows Phone 8.
