    Do any of you know of any game engines for WP7 that are free and require little coding?

    Microsoft has some realy good guides in both XNA and silverlight to get developers started.
    I was never into C# and infact i was never in anything Windows realted but taking a quick look at those guides realy amazed me how simple and effective they are.
    I've said it a thousand times and I'm gona say it once more.
    Microsoft did a realy good job regarding the developers.

    If your more of a visual man then you can also watch youtube videos on tutorials.
    There is a guy that has a channel for WP7 development starting from instalation to creating a complex app.

    P.S.
    All it needs is time, your brain capacity is never the issue.

    Edit:
    I forgot to give credit to the IDE (Visual Studio). The experience is just flawless.
    I've had hard linux gurus gazing at it and wished it was cross platform and supported more languages.

    I recommend flatredball (FlatRedBall | flatredball game engine xna managed directx game development) Its Glue tool is pretty good. Their tools really help in minimising the code you need to do, but you wont get away with 0 code. However its possible for you to create a game without tonnes.

    Good luck!

    This won't necessarily get you right where you may want to be ASAP, but the whole free online courses initiatives these high-tier universities are starting are super exciting to me. And as it turns out, many of them are computer science related. You won't get real college credit, but you will surely learn a lot. These courses are given by universities such as Stanford, Princeton, UC Berkeley, etc. I think a lot of people here (and everywhere) could benefit.

    Udacity doesn't have a huge selection of courses, but you can start them at any time.
    Udacity - Free Classes. Awesome Instructors. Inspiring Community.

    Coursera has a lot more courses, and they cover a wider range of topics. They have start/end dates just like a regular online college course, however.
    https://www.coursera.org/

    I'm sure there are more, but these are the two that I am using now. There is plenty of info at these two sites to get you learning to program and more.
