WP7 Windows Phone 7 Application Development - Now is the Time - Catto Code Crackin #30

WP7 Windows Phone 7 Application Development Catto Code Crackin #30

Hey Now Everybody,

WP7! Windows Phone 7 App Dev! The place is here & the time is now. We always here ‘Timing is everything’ & right now is the time to develop apps for WP7 ‘DubP7’. The tools are all free, the windows marketplace will accept WP7 apps soon & the phone/device will be available to the public soon. Therefore since we can be in the first group of apps in the marketplace there is a nice potential for generating revenue. All this combined with developing in cutting edge technology including Silverlight, VS10, Blend, XNA are the reasons I’m really enjoying WP7Dev. Here is what I’ve been focusing on including some references & my current project.

Windows Phone Development
may be the latest smart phone platform, but it has already taken significant market share and poses a big aggressive threat to iPhone, Android, and BlackBerry.
