This fall Microsoft will be releasing a new phone in the market ? Windows Phone 7. This release opens up the platform to a large number of developers that already have experience with the .NET platform and Silverlight. During this session, we will discuss the approach Microsoft has taken to make sure this is a viable platform for application developers. Additionally we will explore the things that will differentiate this platform from the others from an end user perspective. Finally, we will go through the lifecycle of application development and how to get started.
