    When: Wednesday, March 21st, 2012 from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM (GMT)

    Where: The Vibe Bar (91 Brick Lane, E1 6QL), London, United Kingdom

    Topic: A touch of mono

    Register for this FREE event here!

    Event Details:

    Continuing with our theme from last month, we'll be continuing to look beyond Windows Phone and the lessons we can learn from other platforms and the lessons, knowledge and experiences we can take with us if we take Windows Phone apps to other platforms too.

    Some WPUG regulars will be sharing their experiences:
    Stuart will be talking about his experiences with creating an MVVM solution that also works with MonoTouch & MonoDroid

    Paul will be talking about his experiences of porting applications between iPhone and Windows Phone and vice versa.

    Dominique and Dean will be talking about MonoGame and bringing the joys of XNA to other platforms too.

    As ever, we're also providing the opportunity for people to demonstrate the apps they've made and share some of their experiences and lessons learnt. We have a couple lined up, but if you have an app you want to show or an experience you want to share then please get in touch.

    In this post we want to talk about the new Internet Explorer 10 browsing experience. We have considerably improved the underlying browsing engine with performance, standards, and features as we have previously blogged about. IE10 designed for a Metro style experience is a new and improved way of browsing, where you can truly focus on the information you want to browse rather than the task of browsing – a fully immersive experience. At the same time it provides all of the safety and controls you are used to – tabs, keyboard shortcuts, InPrivate browsing, and more.

    I’m building a sample application for a friend in order to see if it is possible to have a completely OOB and offline Silverlight application running on a Mac using a document database (RavenDB in this case, a special version) as backend.

    On the other side I’m using the same spike to start the Radical Presentation Silverlight 5 implementation, if you recall the first time we spoke about it we state that the main pillar should be simplicity.

    [...] Yesterday, Tim Heuer revealed how to build a deployable custom control for XAML Metro style apps with the Consumer Preview of Windows 8. I discovered that the current beta of Visual Studio 11 comes with a template for a Templated Control. I happily noticed the return of the themes/generic.xaml file that we know from all the other XAML platforms. So I decided to have another go on the radial gauge custom control.

    Microsoft late last week released two community technology previews (CTPs) of System Center 2012 solutions specifically designed for use with the new Windows Server 8 beta.

    The CTPs of Virtual Machine Manager and Data Protection Manager, which are part of the System Center 2012 suite, can be downloaded here. Testing the CTPs requires that a computing environment also have SQL Server 2008 R2 with Service Pack 1 (64-bit editions), .NET 3.5 and Microsoft Hyper-V hypervisor installed.

    This is Part 3 of the translation of the performance chapter of the Windows Phone developer book I co-authored with many of my Hungarian peers. Other parts of this series can be found here.

    There are a number of ways to create animation on Windows Phone. Let’s start with the one that is used the less frequently – procedural animation.

    In the last marketing and monetization interview I’ve interviewed Elbert Perez who has been very successful on Windows Phone with 15 great games. This time I’m talking to guys from 4Bros Studio who managed to become comparably successful with only one game. The game is called Taptitude and it gets a new mini-game on a weekly basis.

    A while ago I wrote an article describing how the Portable Class Library can enable us to write Unit Tests for our Windows Phone apps using the tools and frameworks we’re already familiar with. By adding an abstraction layer and using types common to the Base Class Library, Portable Class Library and Windows Phone we can write unit tests using tools like MSTest and Moq.

    I was recently interviewed by Dane Morgridge and G. Andrew Duthie for their podcast titled “Community MegaPhone”. We talked for about an hour and a half on all things Silverlight, Windows Phone 7 and Windows 8. Dane and Andrew asked a lot of great questions and I thoroughly enjoyed chatting with them. Check out the interview and let me know what you think.
