With this device I have a new found desire to learn Windows Phone 7 programming and embarked on the endeavour by reading “Programming Windows Phone 7” by Charles Petzold (ISBN 978-0-7356-4335-2).

Silverlight Service Basics on Shared Hosting – my first service end to end…
So today I finally got around to playing a bit more with Silverlight. F# has been taking most of my spare time and I felt I needed to branch out into something different for a day or two… Now, before I go into this post… my disclaimer… I am a Silverlight noob – in fact I have focussed most of my development time at normal applications so the whole internet is a bit of a mystery to me… that being said I had some very definite goals for this posting… Setup my server so that it would work with the services ......
