Developer Resources

As promised, I’ve created a section to share developer resources regarding Windows Phone 7 development.This post will be updated every so often. I will tweet whenever a new batch of links are added. Of course, there are many more links available out there, but everything has to start somewhere :). The latest links will be at the top of each section (latest = when I come across them, not necessarily date of them being published ;)). If you would like to send me any links you come across, that would be much appreciated. You can either comment on the post or message me on Twitter (@keyboardP). You can see when this section was last updated in the right hand column, under the aptly named “Developer Resource Last Update” section.
