From SilverlightCream.com:

WCF RIA Services Part 4 - Integrating with the Model-View-ViewModel Pattern
Brian Noyes has part 4 of his tutorial series on WCF RIA Services up at SilverlightShow. This one is touching on MVVM ... what it is and why you might want to use it, and oh yeah... using it with RIA Services.
A Really Long Post About the Windows Phone 7 Push Notification System
Jeff Fansler has a big ol' long post about Push Notifications ... sort of an "All you wanted to know but didn't know how to ask" post :)
Navigating between Pages in Different Xaps (by using MEF)
Pencho Popadiyn has a nice tutorial up at SilverlightShow describing how to do Navigation between pages in different XAP files using MEF... plus the project he uses in the tutorial.
Tic Tac Toe game for Windows Phone 7
Eugene Chaikin has a Tic-Tac-Toe game for WP7 up in a set of tutorials you should probably check out. This is the first I've seen Eugene's blog, but I've got it on my list.
A high performance ProgressBar for Windows Phone
Jeff Wilcox has a great replacement ProgressBar for WP7 that pretty much everyone has already seen, but wanted to list it here for reference.
Exiting a Windows Phone Application
Peter Torr responds to some forun questions about how to exit an app in WP7, with multiple ways and what's all involved in each.
Making a MenuEntry in XNA 4.0’s GSM Sample Look Like a Button
XNA you say? ... well yeah, plust WP7 ... Michael B. McLaughlin is showing some XNA goodness. You probably should pay close attention to the first paragraph and decide if you want to continue reading.
Silverlight PivotViewer app from start to finish
Tim Greenfield has a nice post up describing how to get started with the PivotControl. I'm thinking we're going to be seeing a lot of this, so dig in.


Stay in the 'Light!
