Windows Phone SignalR Helper!

This may just be the shortest post, with the most amount of work going into it 🙂

So, if you are passionate about Windows Phone development, a little something on the .NET web stack should interest you. It is called SignalR — An async signaling library for persistent connections between server & client. The real fun begins when you consider Windows Phone applications as client, with a SignalR powered server backend .. you get real-time connectivity on Windows Phone!! And tons of possibilities, like Chat, Maps, Game Scores, Stock Tickers, Object Exchange etc.

I was quite excited by the opportunities and took a stab at writing a Helper library with a demo Windows Phone application & a SignalR backend server. Since SignalR is open-source, along with most knowledge around it, why not this? So, all of my work is on CodePlex, ready to view/download/extend. A lot more work needs to go in to improve the libraries & may be make NuGets sometime. Please give it a shot .. download & hit F5. Would appreciate any feedback!
