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.
