Last Two Stops of the Silverlight Tour 2010!

Confused...

The last two stops of the Silverlight Tour are headed to Atlanta and Portland (OR) in the next two months. The Silverlight Tour Workshop is a three-day course on Silverlight 4. It divides the content into three distinct areas: Design, Development and the Server-Side. Students should be able to develop Silverlight 4 applications once attending the workshop. The Workshop is structured with a mix of didactic lessons, demonstrations and hands-on labs. Each student will leave the workshop having created several small Silverlight applications. This variety of learning techniques will ensure that all students become proficient in the technology quickly and in an exciting way.

A Week with WP7 from an Android User's Perspective

My WP7 Phone

I spent most of the last week with my early demo Windows Phone 7 (e.g. WP7) phone as my primary phone.  See I am a Verizon customer currently and therefore I couldn't use Verizon on the demo phone (as it takes SIM cards and Verizon can't spell SIM). So I took the opportunity while in Europe to get a pre-paid SIM card and use it as my main phone (since my Droid was useless there). You're probably wondering what my impressions were?  Well, two caveats to start with...I have bet pretty heavily on the phone so I am not exactly a neutral party, but I'll try to be. Also, I've never owned an iPhone (AT&T is true evil incarnate) so take that for what its worth.

Architecting WP7 - Part 7 of 10: Data on the Wire(less)

In this (somewhat belated) part 6 of my Architecture for the Windows Phone 7, I want to talk about dealing with data across the wire (or lack of wire I guess). If you've missed the past parts of the series, you you can visit them here:

Review of my Windows Phone 7 (HTC HD7)

HTC HD7

I am pretty invested in the Windows Phone 7 and in that light I went ahead and got a phone at launch. I had a LG developer device that Microsoft got me to help me work on the book. While having an early device is really helpful, I was ready for an up-to-spec device. To get a device early, I left Verizon and moved to T-Mobile (for what its worth, AT&T is just more evil than the rest so I my hand was forced to T-Mobile). I went with the HTC HD7.  I took a leap of faith and actually pre-ordered the phone without getting my hands on it. But because this phone hardware was used for the Sprint Android Phone and the HD2 WinMo phone, I'd had a chance to see the other devices and liked the overall size and heft of the device.

Navigating with the WebBrowser Control on WP7

GooNews

I am writing a new Windows Phone 7 application called GooNews to show Google News in an application for the phone.  I am writing this application because I needed an app like this. Being able to keep up with news (and create news categories based on keywords) is key to what I wanted to get on my phone. I tried a lot of the other apps out there and when I didn't find what I wanted, I decide to build it myself.

What I learned about Windows Phone 7 from Android

Windows Phone 7

While I have been exceptionally fortunate to get a Windows Phone 7 device, I still am using my Motorola Droid as my primary phone. The primary reason is that I use Verizon and my WP7 phone uses a SIM chip (Verizon doesn't use SIM chips). I expect you're reading this post to gleam some information about the WP7 phone, but let's start with the Android.

I was having a conversation with Chris Tavares of the Patterns and Practices group (the Prism guys). We were talking about the future of Prism (et al.) and the topic of the Windows Phone 7 came up. While MEF, Prism and Unity might make an appearance on the device, the real question to us was why.

Now that the Windows Phone 7 Tools are fully released, I sit here waiting for the phones to be released. In the time between the tool release and the phones being released, I have some precious time to get my applications ready for release as well. While I am not building any mass-market applications (nope, no fart apps here); I am building a number of small applications that should show off some features of the phone.
