How Large Should Your Windows Phone 7 Apps Be?

Windows Phone 7

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.

HTML5, XAML and Declarative User Interfaces

Hrmph!

At the suggestion of Tim Heuer this week, I took a break from writing my Windows Phone 7 book to delve into HTML5 a bit. I wanted to see what was different and how it would possibly impact Rich Internet Applications (RIA).

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.

Should You Be Looking for Trends in Microsoft Stories?

Developers

This last week or two has seen a number of interesting stories come out of Microsoft (some official, some not official), especially as it relates to developers and writing code. While I am sure that the announcements are not meant to indicate a trend, taken in conjuction they are confusing or disheartening to developers.

I've had my phone a couple of days now and been playing with the development experience on the device.  As some of you remember, I've been creating a new Moon Phase application for the phone (called "Moon Phaser").  I'll be releasing the source and you'll be able to install it on your phone (for free) once the Marketplace launches.

What I Learned By Writing a WP7 App: Part 1 - Manipulations

Windows Phone 7

As some of you have heard, I am working on a Windows Phone 7 book. While most of my time has been spent trying to convince the publisher to let me call it "The Windows Phonebook: Writing Applications for Windows Phone 7, A-Z", I've had the chance to start writing a real application with it. The purpose of the application is to get comfortable with the programming environment but be able to ship a free app at launch that has some value (yeah, I am already signed up for a Marketplace Developer account!).
