Windows Phone 7 Development

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.
