    Hey

    Any books or tutorials on the horizon for beginners starting WP8 development?

    Is WP7 development similar enough to use a WP7 dev book?

    Thanks

    You can use a WP7 book, just learn the tricks of WP8. The concepts are very similar.

    Here is a great resource: Windows Phone Dev Center

    True, but a WP8 book would be a whole lot nicer. It doesn't look like there is a single one. It really feels like WP is an afterthought.

    I'm thinking of getting this book:
    Building Windows 8 Apps with C# and XAML (Microsoft Windows Development Series): Jeremy Likness: 9780321822161: Amazon.com: Books
    The reviews are great so far, and it seems like a good start for someone like me (not a whole lot of experience developing for anything)...

    Also, I started here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/wi...vs.105%29.aspx

    Seems like there are a lot of MS and user samples, tutorials, and guides on MSDN, check it out!
