Developing for the Windows Phone 7 - Part 2: Debugging on the Phone

Windows Phone 7

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.

Windows Phone 7

I am one of the lucky few who received Windows Phone 7 phone this week. For those who will ask, I got a phone because I am writing a book on programming for the Windows Phone 7 (Application Development for the Windows Phone 7 with Silverlight, Addison-Wesley).

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!).

Blogging...

Its been a hectic couple of months, but I am starting to see the light of day. While I am teach The Silverlight Tour in Boston this week, I am getting back on the blogging bandwagon.  In the next few weeks you'll see me delve into many of the topics you'd expect from me including:

I had the pleasure of doing four talks.  Here are the talks, the slides and the code:
