MSDN Magazine - to read online or offline
MSDN Magazine - to read online or offline
Saturday, 11 December 2010

The focus for the December Issue of MSDN Magazine is Windows Phone 7 with some very nice example including an MVVM Sudoku. But even if you are not into Windows Phone 7 there is plenty to read in this issue.

You don't have to have a subscription to MSDN to read the MSDN Magazine. Read it online or download the pdfs to read offline - and the code is downloadable too!

The focus for the December Issue of MSDN Magazine is Windows Phone 7.

The first article is a Silverlight-based game tutorial, Sudoku for Windows Phone 7, that demonstrates the Model-View-ViewModel design pattern, serialization, user storage and multiple orientations. Then comes Build Data-Driven Apps with Windows Azure and Windows Phone 7.

Charles Petzold's regular column shows how to code the Silverlight Thumb control for both the mouse and multi-touch input for both the Web and Windows Phone 7, while David Platt considers The Secrets to a Successful Windows Phone App. 

Even if you are not into Windows Phone 7 there is plenty to read in this issue.

There a BDD Primer explaining how the Behavior-Driven-Development cycle wraps Test-Driven Development (TDD) techniques and walks through an example ASP.NET application. An article on Event Tracing for Windows (ETW) provides performance diagnostics for .NET applications and one of Windows Azure AppFabric shows how to authenticate and authorise users of Windows Live ID, Facebook, Yahoo and Google within your Web sites and services.

But rather than read our summary of the contents see the entire list at:

A print version of MSDN magazine is available on subscription in the US, but isn't it about time it was also available in a range of ebook formats? It would be nice to have it delivered automatically to your Kindle, or whatever eReader is your favorite, on a regular basis.
