Something New Every Day

A record of doing a new thing every day in 2011

31 Days Of Mango (325/365) Monday November 21, 2011

Found a great website on Monday called 31 Days Of Mango, which as you’d expect from the name has one tip each day for a month on developing for Windows Phone 7.

There were lots of new things I learnt from the site (and continue to do so), and in particular it made me understand a bug I have in my Bedside Clock application in how it didn’t handle the change of power state very well. Turns out - which I should have realised - I need to make sure the UI updating code needs to be on a different thread.

If you’re doing any WP7 phone development, I definitely recommend taking a look at the site.
