I’m also poking around with how to write apps for it. It was easy to download C# Express and WP7 tools and get started with the emulator.
- I started with ScottGu’s blog announcing the release of WP7 Dev tools. You can download the tools here.
- I did the “My first WP7 app” tutorial, which shows hosting a web browser control. It worked flawlessly in the emulator.
- I also looked at Scott’s blog on writing a Twitter app.
- This is a nice MSDN summary of basic tasks.
WP7 user apps are written in WPF (or XNA). I never really needed WPF when writing debugging stacks, so I’m feeling the pain from the learning curve here.
