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.
