I recently came across this site 31 Days of Mango, a series of articles which will focus on development for Windows Phone 7.5. This is a continuation of the original series, 31 Days of Windows Phone, which was published in the fall of 2010.

I will be publishing a detailed tutorial on Windows Phone development each day this month, specifically focusing on the new additions that were introduced with the Mango update.

For every one of these articles, you will need to use the Windows Phone SDK 7.1 and Visual Studio 2010. You can download both, for free, from the link below:


Also can  make you aware of the incentives programme. There are great prizes, including Bose earphones, Ferrari drives, BluRay players, Sony camcorders, XBOX consoles, TVs, etc., and I expect lots of students would like these prizes (full list here). In addition to the main incentives programme, we’re also offering hoodies just for students – the closing date for the first draw is this coming Sunday, 27th November.
