Windows Phone 8 Development Succinctly: free ebook for developers

I’m happy to announce that, last week, Syncfusion, a popular company among developers for their great suites of controls, has released my new book titled Windows Phone 8 Development Succinctly. It’s a digital free e-book and, in 243 pages, it covers most of the important concepts to develop a Windows Phone application, from the basic ones (like the XAML, the application lifecycle, etc.) to the most advanced ones (like background tasks, geolocalization and speech APIs).

Here is a quick recap of the chapters:

  1. Introduction
  2. The User Interface: Basic XAML Concepts
  3. Core Concepts
  4. Data Access: Storage
  5. Data Access: Network
  6. Integrating with the Hardware
  7. Integrating with the Operating System
  8. Multimedia Applications
  9. Live Apps: Tiles, Notifications, and Multitasking
  10. Distributing the Application: Localization, the Windows Phone Store, and In-App Purchases

The book is distributed by Syncfusion for free, you just have to register and then you’ll be able to download it both in PDF and Kindle format. I hope that the book can be a great resource both for new developers, that want to start learning the basic Windows Phone concepts, and for already skilled developers, that can use the book as a reference for all the APIs and features offered by the platform.

So don’t waste anymore time and head to to register and download your free copy!
