    A number of Metro style apps use a hierarchical system of navigation. This is an intuitive and common pattern used by app developers. In this video tutorial, I’ll show you how to style and customize GroupStyles using Blend and VS to implement the hierarchical navigation system.

    In the blog post Diving Deep with Await and WinRT, we discussed the new async and await keywords in C# and Visual Basic and how you can use them to consume Windows Runtime (WinRT) asynchronous operations.

    With some assistance from the .NET Base Class Libraries (BCL), you can also use these keywords to develop asynchronous operations that are then exposed via WinRT for other components built in other languages to consume. In this post, we’ll explore how to do so. (For overall details on implementing WinRT components with C# or Visual Basic, see Creating Windows Runtime Components in C# and Visual Basic.)

    In this post Gill Cleeren demonstrates how to create an application that works together with the services API exposed by Bing.com.

    Bing has a very rich API that we can use to incorporate search functionalities in our applications, including Silverlight applications. It allows us to use WCF (SOAP) and REST communication, because it exposes endpoints for both these technologies. In this particular example, I’m using the SOAP interface for communication using a WCF service. To get a complete overview of the functionalities, you can download the PDF describing the entire API at http://www.bing.com/developers/s/API%20Basics.pdf . It also contains some sample code.

    Here is one great article by Bonnie Cha who explains what to expect from Windows Phone 7.

    Source: CNET

    In February 2010, Microsoft introduced Windows Phone 7 to the world. A complete overhaul of the company's mobile operating system, Microsoft got the tech world excited about it again with its fresh user interface, added features, and promises of improved performance. We've had to wait a long nine months since then to see if Windows Phone 7 actually delivers everything it promises, but we finally got a chance to find out.

    Just like the rest of the Windows Phone 7 world, particularly the development community, I’ve been eagerly anticipating the release of Mango since its announcement early this year. I installed build 7661 when it was released to registered developers in late June as well as the subsequent 7712 build released several days ago and it has certainly lived up to my expectations.

    Shimmy Weitzhandler posted a solution for those who want to have the IEventAggregator injected by the Container rather than a singleton that maintains the project's EventAggregator.

    Source: Shimmy on .NET

    In a previous blog post I spoke about a wrapper to the EventAggregator, and explained why I find the CompositePresentationEvent<TEvent> somewhat verbose.

    I provided code that will replace the need of the dependency in Dependency Injection (DI) :) where the EventAggregator is to be used in small project.

    I am now moving a little bigger project to MVVM and to do use DI and of course Prism.

    In part 18 of the continuing story of EvenTiles we will take a look at targeting additional Windows Phone devices that will shortly hit the market in several countries. A few weeks ago, the Windows Phone 7.1.1 SDK Update became available for download. This SDK contains everything you need to develop Windows Phone applications that target the new 256-MB devices. Compared to Windows Phone 7.5 devices, these devices have less memory available, but they can run almost all applications that will run on Windows Phone 7.5 devices as long as they don’t use excessive amounts of memory and as long as they don’t make use of generic background services.

    Read the original post at CNet.

    Intel is offering more specifics on the features of future Windows 8 tablet at a conference in Beijing. It's a laudable goal, but can Intel make it happen this year?

    Underneath the glass will be beat an Atom Z2760 "Clover Trail" chip: dual-core capable with "burst mode" (for quick bursts of performance when needed) and Hyperthreading -- the latter allows a dual-core chip to behave in quad-core-like fashion in some cases.

    At a time when many organizations are moving from Windows XP or 2000 to Windows 7, the last thing a lot of people want to think about is Windows 8. At the same time, it is incredibly clear that the future of client computing is undergoing a major shift thanks to the rapid growth of iPad and other tablet devices. Windows 8 is not only the next desktop operating system from Microsoft, but it is also Microsoft’s answer to this substantial shift toward low-power touch-based client devices.

    This change impacts not only the operating system, but the underlying application development model. The new Windows Runtime (WinRT) development platform represents an evolution for .NET developers, and a significant shift for non-.NET developers.

    I’m using the excellent REST library RestSharp for all my REST and OAuth calls. I’m also using the amazing data caching framework AgFx written by Shawn Burke which handles caching your web requests, something that goes from a nice to have to critical when writing high performance Windows Phone apps.

    Out of the box AgFx handles all your requests so it can do it’s caching thing, getting in the front of each request to determine if it should give you a cached version instead of hitting the web, if it should invalidate the cache, if it should give you a cached version and then make a live request, etc. [...]
