Product Description

Microsoft's certification exam 70-599 for its new mobile platform is named "Designing and Developing Windows Phone 7 Applications" and has been published on July 14th, 2011. This ebook will try to bring you up to speed to take the exam, or can be used as a basis to plan your own, self-paced learning to prepare for the exam at a later point.
The ebook is based on SilverlightShow's 5-part article series ‘Getting ready for the Windows Phone 7 Exam 70-599'authored by Peter Kuhn. While the online article series gives references to external resources, here we have done our best to include those resources as full text, so you may enjoy the ebook while travelling, at places with no connection, on your desktop, etc. For each topic the author Peter Kuhn has picked the resource that best covers the material needed. Of 36 total selected resources, 33 have been published as full text, and the rest of the resources are still included as links due to lack of copy permissions or inability to reach the respective authors.

From the author:

Unlike with Silverlight for the desktop which had no exam available until version 4, Microsoft pushed out a beta version of the exam for Windows Phone 7 only a few months after the devices hit the market. The publish date for the final version of that exam in July means we'll see the first certification option for developers in a lot less than a year of presence in the market. This once again demonstrates the importance of the platform to Microsoft, and is the attempt to establish a standard to attest a developer's knowledge level early on. For you as a developer this opens the opportunity to demonstrate your expertise by an official certificate and be recognized by potential employers or clients as someone who has internalized and mastered the essential concepts of the platform successfully.

The structure of this ebook is based on the measured skills outline available from Microsoft to make it easy to follow along and map what you learn to the requirements of the exam. That outline, along with additional information about the exam, can be found online here: http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/exam.aspx?ID=70-599#tab2. The individual parts are:

  • Designing Data Access Strategies (19%)
  • Designing and Implementing Notification Strategies (17%)
  • Working with Platform APIs, Tasks, and Choosers (21%)
  • Designing the Application Architecture (21%)
  • Designing the User Interface and User Experience (22%)
We hope you will enjoy this e-book, and wish you good luck with taking the exam!
