Preface

Mobile applications are one of the fastest growing markets. There are hundred billion dollar businesses on the stage looking for employees as well as individual developers to create bestseller applications.

The Windows Phone market is growing fast, but there are still not as many applications as there should be. This means that there is a lot of room for improvement. XAML and C# are a well-conceived pair that indulges most developers. New features in the latest version of Silverlight provide mechanisms that accelerate and simplify ordinary tasks.

C# 4.5 features such as dynamic programming, asynchronous methods, and optional parameters are just some of the topics described here that developers find useful.
