    In this Mango development tutorial we are going to explore a new SDK feature; local database storage. This was not available to us in the pre-mango SDK hence the tutorial on how to use Isolated StorageIsolated Storage worked for storage purposes when we had no local database and using web services were out of the question. Now that this sweet Mango treat has come our way, it is time to dive in. This will be a different approach for most new developers as we are going to use LINQ to SQL but you can learn as we go.

    When working with the C# development language, individual developers often find a process that works for them and stick to it. After all, if the code passes all our tests, we can ship it, right? Well, no. Releasing products in today’s complex programming landscape isn’t that simple. We think developers need to revisit some of the standard decisions we make about Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML) concepts such as dependency properties, LINQ and the layout system. When we examine these aspects from a performance perspective, various approaches can prove questionable.

    Don't miss this awesome interview of Pete Brown with Jeff Handley, Deepesh Mohnani, and Dinesh Kulkarni.

    While on campus in May, I met with the WCF RIA Services team at Microsoft. We discussed both the awesome parts and the difficult parts of the recent product release.

    Microsoft WCF RIA Services simplifies the traditional n-tier application pattern by bringing together the ASP.NET and Silverlight platforms. RIA Services provides a pattern to write application logic that runs on the mid-tier and controls access to data for queries, changes, and custom operations. It also provides end-to-end support for common tasks such as data validation, authentication, and roles by integrating with Silverlight components on the client and ASP.NET on the mid-tier.

    One of the intrinsic capabilities of Windows 8 is the ability to use multiple accounts on any PC. This makes it much easier for parents to use tools that can help protect their children from content on the Internet as they see fit. It is also a great way for each family member to maintain their own unique online identity while still sharing a single PC. Microsoft has been a leader in creating tools to help maintain a safe computing environment for all users as well as for parents in particular. With Windows 8 we have substantially improved the family safety features and services available. Phil Sohn, the senior program manager lead for Family Safety, describes how Family Safety features will work in Windows 8.

    Currently I am working on a Windows Phone 7 application using the Telerik controls and learning a little more bit about the controls present in their library. So, I thought to share the same in my blog for next few days. If you are using these controls, it will help you to learn very quickly.

    As a WP7Dev, you might want to build a stunning application with an animation to the page navigation or orientation changes. This article will help you to do so by using the Telerik RadControls for Windows Phone 7. Continue reading to learn more about the APIs and the implementation steps.

    Microsoft recently released the consumer preview of Visual Studio 11, which contains the next version of LightSwitch, Microsoft’s youngest technology. In this article, I’ll explore a key feature of LightSwitch added in the beta release: the ability to easily create and consume Open Data Protocol (OData) services, which can in turn be consumed from any client, including custom Windows Phone applications.

    Microsoft has failed in the mobile market. Could Windows Phone 8 be the salvation it is seeking?
    “If at first you don’t succeed try, try, and try again.”
    It has been two years since Windows Phone launched, yet today it sits as a distant last place competitor in the smartphone market. Despite two years of effort, Microsoft now holds a lower market share than it did in 2010. Things couldn’t be much worse for Windows Phone. Later this month, we will see Microsoft’s third major push to gain momentum with its Android and iPhone alternative. No one can accuse Microsoft of not trying, but will its persistence and self-belief pay off with Windows Phone 8? Let’s take a closer look.

    The IDC’s quarterly Appcelerator survey has found that in Q4 2014 Windows Phone developer interest has hit an all-time high of 37%. The number is near double the 2012 low of 22% brought on by the transition to Windows Phone 8.

    Developer interest in the iPhone, iPad and HTML5 all saw a drop, as developers look to expand beyond iOS and HTML5 becomes increasingly fragmented.
