Adam Nathan is a principal software development engineer for Microsoft, a best-selling technical author, and arguably the most prolific developer for Windows Phone. Adam previously cofounded Popfly, Microsoft’s first product built on Silverlight, named one of the 25 most innovative products of 2007 by PCWorld magazine. He is also the founder of PINVOKE.NET, the online resource for .NET developers who need to access Win32.

Adam has created several top apps in the Windows Phone Marketplace that have been featured on Lifehacker, Gizmodo, ZDNet, ParentMap, and various Windows Phone enthusiast sites. Many of them are identical to or based on apps in this book. Chapter 36’s Sound Recorder app was featured on MSDN’s first Channel 9 “Hot Apps” show. With the purchase of this book, the same app is now yours to tweak and sell!

Adam’s books have been considered required reading by many inside Microsoft and throughout the industry. Adam is the author of Silverlight 1.0 Unleashed (Sams, 2008), WPF Unleashed (Sams, 2006), WPF 4 Unleashed (Sams, 2010), and .NET and COM: The Complete Interoperability Guide (Sams, 2002); a coauthor of ASP.NET: Tips, Tutorials, and Code (Sams, 2001); and a contributor to books including .NET Framework Standard Library Annotated Reference, Volume 2 (Addison-Wesley, 2005), and Windows Developer Power Tools (O’Reilly, 2006). You can find Adam online at www.adamnathan.net or @adamnathan on Twitter.
