Hey Telerik Developer Community! If you are in the northeastern US (or even further, if you look at the speakers!), then you probably spent this past Saturday afternoon at New England Code Camp 14 for a day jam packed with great topics and conversations.
I was able to present Building a Unified Experience - Developing with Silverlight 4 and Windows Phone 7 at NECC and had a great time of it- the audience seemed to get into the talk as well with tons of questions regarding the framework, the future of WP7, and the launch that we all know is coming very soon.
You can find the slides and sample code right here:

Just keep in mind, if you plan on testing out the Windows Phone 7 project, the service reference is based off of the Silverlight 4 project. So to get everything running right, be sure to at least run the SL4 project (or just the service to get it active) and then update the service configuration in the WP7 project as needed.
Also, I promised people some links and here they are:

Happy reading, and thanks again to Chris Bowen, Chris Pels, and Jim O'Neil (as well as the rest of the speakers) for putting together an awesome day!
