An Overview of the Windows Phone 8 SDK Article

  • submit to reddit

I have a new in-depth article published in print and online for CODE Magazine called, “An Overview of the Windows Phone 8 SDK”. If you're looking to get up to speed quickly with Windows Phone 8, then this is an article that you don’t want to miss.

See below for more information and a link to the online article.

Article Introduction

It didn’t take long after the introduction of Windows Runtime (WinRT, the set of APIs that allow Windows Store apps to communicate with the Windows 8 operating system), for Microsoft to unveil the next generation of its mobile operating system, Windows Phone 8, which conveniently includes some of the APIs coming directly from WinRT. It’s easy to imagine the APIs merging together at some point, as that would make writing applications for on-the-go devices such as tablets and mobile phones much easier.

This article discusses the improvements in the new Windows Phone 8 SDK, walks through the requirements to build an app on this new platform, and explores several great new features in this platform.
