    Hello guys,
    I'm new to this forum and to WP 8. I used to be iPhone user for more than three years , but now I want start to develop apps for mobile and I chose WP8 because I studied C#. But doesnt really made apps before.

    So I have some questions before I begin:
    1.What is XAML?
    2. I know the basics of C#. Is it will be enough?
    3. Additionally I want to order a book of WP8. I saw 3 .
    *Windows Phone 8 Development Internals

    *Essential Windows Phone 8 (2nd Edition) (Microsoft Windows

    Development Series
    *Windows Phone 8 unleashed.
    What will be better for beginner?

    Also is there something else I need to know about WP8?

    Thanks in advance!

    Think of C# as the back-end (events that occur on a tap of a button, things that load up when the app opens)

    Think of XAML as the designer, but made into code. There's really no need for it up until runtime, because you can just use the drag-n-drop editor, much easier and less error prone.


    What type of app are you making?

    I asked because if your making a calculator or something, yes the basics are enough. If you're using APIs, speech, etc then no.
