So, I’ve got a news from my lecturer for my Diploma program about the topics of my final project,
And the topic is “Markerless Augmented Reality for Windows Phone”.
Damn it, I have no experience at all in either augmented reality nor windows phone, and also after a bit of searching I found that almost all windows phone 7 in Indonesia cost about 4.5 Million Rupiah or more (Nokia Lumia). CMIIW
But after all, because it’s already decided, I try to google it for a little bit about the development of windows phone application, and I want to share about it a little, because at first I have difficulties at finding the correct tools (I use Visual Studio 2010, and the web installer for windows phone doesn’t work)
- Install the Visual Studio for Windows phone, you can find iso format here: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=13890
- The best tutorial I’ve found to get started on windows phone I’ve found is located here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/ff380145 just follow the tutorial and you’ll grab the basic stuff easily
- You can also download a free ebook about windows phone development here: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/microsoft_press/archive/2010/10/28/free-ebook-programming-windows-phone-7-by-charles-petzold.aspx
We can use Silverlight and XNA to develop a windows phone application, Silverlight for Rich Internet Application, while XNA excels at game application, and you can also combine both of them. More details can be found here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff402528(v=vs.92).aspx
Well, that’s all folks.
I’ll update again when I finished my first project for Silverlight J
