San Francisco Windows Phone Study Group: next meetup is Thursday, November 17, 2011
Due to travel, I haven't been able to have a Windows Phone study group meetup in San Francisco for a few weeks, but that's about to change. On Thursday, 17-Nov-2011, I'll present Chapter 3 from Adam Nathan's book 101 Windows Phone 7 Apps. The app we'll build stores vital information about yourself that can be used in an emergency. For example, you can list your allergies. It's a simple app, but building it will explore:
- Page orientation
- Dealing with both the on-screen and hardware keyboards
- Input scopes
- Scroll viewer
- Size properties
- Margins and padding
- Emulator-specific code
Be sure to download the free Windows Phone development tools beforehand.
You don't need Adam's book in order to get something out of the presentation, but I recommend it. If you have an app you'd like to show the group, please let me know.
