Alright, I just got me a whiff of the new features of the new Windows Phone 7. They are all awesome! And I can’t wait to develop apps for that phone!
Downloaded my SDK from here:
And will be trying it out.
Why? hmm.. here’s why:
1. I will be using Silverlight. I already know silverlight! Isn’t that cool? Only a few things to learn and off I go! No need to study an entirely new language. That’s real important for me.
2. I will just slap on the SDK to me already existing installation of Visual Studio. NO NEED TO DOWNLOAD A SEPARATE IDE. hehe.. I already know how to get around the IDE and I don’t need to install and support another one.
3. The SDK comes with an emulator. Of course I want to test my app, but how? I don’t have a windows phone. Well the SDK will come with an emulator and you won’t need to buy a phone to develop apps for it.
4. My app will be deployed to real phones through the Windows Phone Applications Market. How cool is that?! If I want to show my friends what the app looks like on a real phone, “dude, it’s in the app market”
Will be giving it a spin later.. stay tuned!
