Welcome to the 31 Days of Windows Phone. This is a journey through a ton of different topics in development for the Windows Phone platform.

This series has also been translated to Russian by Sergey Pugachev, but he’s taken it a step further.
He’s adding additional content to my original posts, taking it to 45 Days of Windows Phone
.

The 31 Days of Windows Phone has also becoming the “31 dias de Windows Phone,” thanks to David Mora.
His Spanish translation will be completed by the end of December 2010.

  9. First of all, thank you for all your examples, they have been a great help. I was wondering, do you have a sample of code to produce the listing like the people list, where the list is sorted alphabetically were you can click on the letter and it takes you to a screen that has all the letters so you can go directly to that letter in the list.

    I have created an app using the Databound application template and I have a long list of items. I thought it would be nice to allow the customer to go directly to a point in that list.

  11. Self-sacrifice enables us to sacrifice other people without blushing.

  12. When a stupid man is doing something he is ashamed of, he always declares that it is his duty.

  17. I am an end-user, not a developer. Is there a simple app that I can buy to increase the font sizes in the Windows Phone SMS application? The font sizes are not friendly to folks who are past 40.
