Ebook gratuito sulla programmazione Windows Phone 7

Il blog di Microsoft Press mette a disposizione un ebook gratuito sulla programmazione del nuovo sistema operativo mobile di casa Microsoft.
Sul blog di Microsoft Press ho trovato questo post interessante. Mettono a disposizione di tutti un ebook sulla programmazione di Windows Phone 7.

Ci sono stati alcuni problemi con il file, che pare mancasse di alcuni font. Ora l'hanno sistemato ed è liberamente scaricabile sia in format pdf che xps. È anche presente un bello zip con i 190 esempi proposti sul libro.

L'ebook è in inglese. Per chi è pigro, metto qui i link per il download.
