Windows 8, Windows Phone, ...


MIX10 and Windows Phone


189685-windowsmobile_slideI’ve been lucky for the second year in row to go at MIX. I was very excited to be part of the event, because one of the main topic was about Windows Phone 7. I’m a long time fan of Windows Mobile.  I often think about building some Windows Mobile application, but i had to learn the .NET Compact Framework. But i didn’t had much time to learn that framework. Since I'm focusing my development skill on Silverlight, the announcement of Windows Phone was a great relief. My installation and testing the new tools was very easy.


I’m looking forward to develop some application using Silverlight on Windows Phone. So look often at this blog because i will post often about Windows Phone.


Globally MIX10 was not as surprising as last year because most of the announcement was not exclusive. We knew most of the announcement prior to the MIX. But i can easily tell, this was my preferred MIX at this time. Because, i took advantage of the event in many ways. I’ve learned a lot from the session which where very good. Also i had a good time meeting a lot of people, from which i learned a lot.

Between me and my husband we've owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I've settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
