Demo code from my session about Live Tiles & Push Notification for Windows Phone on Microsoft TechDays Canada TV

I’d like to thank all of you who attended my session about Live Tiles & Push Notifications on Windows Phone on the Microsoft TechDays Canada TV!

Live tiles, channeled with Push Notifications, are important for your application’s user experience, and are very easily created in either Silverlight or XNA, and with a notification service residing anywhere on the cloud, with Azure being the better solution.

To make it even easier- you can find and download all of the code samples and demos from the session directly from my SkyDrive here.

I’ll gladly answer any of your questions posted here or at the Canadian Developer Connection LinkedIn group.

If you missed the session, you may find it on the TechDays TV site or directly on YouTube for your convinience.

“Push Notifications and Live Tiles in Windows Phone” lecture for the TechDays Canada TV on April 24th.

I’m preparing a lecture about “Push Notifications and Live Tiles in Windows Phone” for the TechDays Canada TV ( @techdays_ca ), which is due April 24th.

Here’s summary of the lecture:

In Windows Phone, an application does not have to run in order to communicate with the user, rather the Push Notifications and Live Tiles features can be used in order to present live and dynamic information to the user over the pinned applications’ tiles and by prompting pop-up notifications over the phone screen.

In this session we will go through the concepts of Push Notifications and Live Tiles in Windows Phone applications and see how easy it is to create and use them from your own code.
