Windows Phone 7 Development

Written in


So I started writing a few apps for Windows Phone 7 in Silverlight.  As most my readers know (some regrettably, I’m sure), I’m a fan of Silverlight.  I don’t believe it’s the end-all of development platforms, but for the purposes it serves, I really enjoy writing software in Silverlight.  I was recently appointed as a Windows Phone Champion at Microsoft, and that means I’m going to be spending a good amount of time here talking about software development related to Silverlight, web services, and the Windows Phone tools.

So, having said that, I also want to announce that I’m bringing back my “post-a-day” series later this year.  September will have a brand-new 30 Days of Silverlight, updated for Silverlight 4.  November will be all about the 30 Days of Windows Phone 7. (Yes, I just committed to 60 posts before the end of the year.  I’m an idiot.)

If you haven’t already, go over to http://developer.windowsphone.com to download the tools for Windows Phone 7.  I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised how easy creating an app can be.

    The new development for Windows 7 looks really interesting; however I am unable to install the tools as I run Windows Server2008 r2 on my workstation. I’m sure I’m not the only one who does this. Do you know if the tools will support Server OS development environments in the future?
