Windows Phone 8 Development

In this session, we will explore the realm of Windows Phone 8 development. We will walkthrough the basics of building a simple data-driven application using XAML for UI layout, the WP8 user controls and the MVVM pattern for data-binding.

Users wishing to participate will need to download the Windows Phone 8 SDK from The SDK download will install both Visual Studio 2012 Express and the Windows Phone 8 SDK.

The following system requirements are needed to run the Windows Phone Emulator:

Supported Operating System
Windows 8, Windows 8 Pro

Operating system type:
Windows 8 64-bit (x64) client versions
6.5 GB of free hard disk space
64-bit (x64) CPU
Windows Phone 8 Emulator:
Windows 8 Pro edition or greater
Requires a processor that supports Second Level Address Translation (SLAT)
If your computer meets the hardware and operating system requirements, but does not meet the requirements for the Windows Phone 8 Emulator, the Windows Phone SDK 8.0 will install and run. However, the Windows Phone 8 Emulator will not function and you will not be able to deploy or test apps on the Windows Phone 8 Emulator.

About Jeremy:

I am a resident of Wheeling, WV and a Web Engineering Specialist II at Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe, LLP. I primarily work with .NET/SharePoint[masked] development during the work day and dive into Windows Phone development as a hobby in my free time. Known as “snickler” on the XDA-Developers forum, I have contributed to Windows Phone homebrew development since 2010 and currently have a Google Music Player on the Windows Phone marketplace titled CloudMuzik.

Meeting Sponsor:

I also want to thank CEI for sponsoring our April meeting. I know they have some developer positions available that are directly relevant to our .NET user group. CEI will be in attendance if you have any further questions before or after the meeting. There is also a write up about their solutions team openings and environment on

      I don't think I'll be able to do after, but Jeremy (speaker) and I are grabbing something before (assuming we're on time). Just not sure where yet.
