Once you have completed your Windows Phone 7 application you will need to publish it to the Marketplace. In this unit you will learn how to avoid some common publishing mistakes.

Creating Private Windows Phone 7 Applications
The Windows Phone 7 marketplace does not have a concept of a private marketplace. Applications published to the marketplace are visible to everyone. When deploying an application for all the users in a large organization, using the marketplace is the most efficient way to go about it. Developers must take steps to ensure applications deployed to the public marketplace are only used by authorized employees and not the general public.
