Microsoft is trying to encourage a new group of app developers with its new Channel 9 Absolute Beginner series designed to provide all the basic information needed to create apps for Windows Phone.

The program features over 10 hours of tutorials as the Windows Dev Team walks users through all the fundamental building blocks of a Windows Phone app, with the goal of ultimately producing apps for publication in the Windows Phone Store.

The programs training’s style and pace are definitely targeted at the beginner. For participants who have never done any programming before, it's highly recommended to start with a course on C# Fundamentals.

For developers with past programming experience, the Building Apps for Windows Phone 8.1 Jumpstart program is driven from the perspective of existing developers who are targeting Windows Phone first, with an eye towards building universal Windows apps that can be targeted for delivery on Windows tablets, laptops and PCs as well.

This is a 16 hour, 23 module set of training resources, designed to provide current developers everything needed to build apps leveraging all of the most important developer scenarios on Windows Phone. The program is available here.
