With the release of Windows Phone 7 Mango, a lot of extra features were added to the platform. One of the most anticipated ones is the possibility to create code that runs in the background. This way, applications can perform tasks such as polling a service, updating a live tile and much more. It's also possible to create audio agents that allow you to build media players that can play audio without the app on the foreground.

In this webinar, we'll do a deep dive on all options we get to do background processing in WP7 Mango.

Presenter: Gill Cleeren
