Welcome to the 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.
If you would like to have an application on your Windows Phone that provides direct access to each of the articles on this site, there’s now a 31 Days of Mango application in the Windows Phone Marketplace. I am selling it for $1 USD to offset the costs of hosting this site. Thank you for your support.
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:
This page will be "home base" for each of the articles that I publish here, and the list will grow each day. Tomorrow's article will appear on this when it is posted, but you have several options to participate in this series, with RSS and Email subscriptions, as well as an active Twitter discussion using the hashtag #mango31.
This series is also being translated to several different languages.
A Chinese translation can be found at http://bit.ly/mango31-chinese.
A German translation can be found at http://bit.ly/mango31-german
Spanish can be found at http://bit.ly/mango31-spanish
It will also be available in Portuguese and Polish later this year.
