    I think Lynda.com is a good site for e-learning, C# (main lang for developing wp apps) courses included also :)

    Microsoft offer a free download of the "Visual Studio Express for Windows 2013." For Windows phone development, there are some higher-end specs needed, such as Windows Pro running 64bit, and the CPU likewise needs certain newer features in order to operate the phone simulator software. In lieu of the required CPU, you can register and use your own hardware phone for testing purposes and just plug it into the PC.

    I would separate app development to 2 categories
    a) skills (there are some good replies here, you should take some basic courses and after that try by examples)

    b) tools
    You should also check that you have the right tools for the job. For Windows Phone 8 you need Windows 8. The good side is that Visual Studio 2013 if free to use for WP development and actually is a great programming tool - the phone emulators that come with VS2013 are great too. You also need to have a powerful computer with an enough memory ( 8 Gb is good enough), good CPU (i7) to make programming fun - when developing you don't wan't to wait for program to start or compile

    small detail, maybe obvious. windows phone 8 silverlight is different than 8.1 RT. Follow the latter. I kept trying code that didn't work because I was relying on older silverlight libraries.

    I was fan of Silverlight but in many ways RT is better. And not only that, RT provides universal type of projects.

    If you are at the beginning I advise you ti use html5+javascript. So you can publish your app also in other store such as google play or itunes, beacause it is cross-platform. You can get a lot of sample on internet, typing html5 + javascript.

    To build good quality apps, you should learn design patterns like MVVM (for XAML based apps) and MVC (for HTML/JS apps). Understand how these concepts work in relation to code and then you can start actually coding.
