    At a time when many organizations are moving from Windows XP or 2000 to Windows 7, the last thing a lot of people want to think about is Windows 8. At the same time, it is incredibly clear that the future of client computing is undergoing a major shift thanks to the rapid growth of iPad and other tablet devices. Windows 8 is not only the next desktop operating system from Microsoft, but it is also Microsoft’s answer to this substantial shift toward low-power touch-based client devices.

    This change impacts not only the operating system, but the underlying application development model. The new Windows Runtime (WinRT) development platform represents an evolution for .NET developers, and a significant shift for non-.NET developers.

    Peter Torr published the first of several posts about the new multitasking features in Windows Phone Mango.

    Alarms and Notifications is a good place to start because it is the simplest of the new multitasking features (outside of Fast App Switching, but that's not really an API) and it doesn't require running code in the background; it just leverages a system service to notify the user when a specific time is met.

    I will present how it was written and then how to use it. At the end of this post you can find a sample application that contains all the code.

    In this post, Andre Vrignaud focuses on how you log into Xbox Live on Windows Phone 7, and how Windows LIVE ID is integrated into the system.

    One of the most important things to understand about Windows Phone 7 is that access to all of your information centers around a Windows LIVE ID (WLID for short, also once known as a Passport or Hotmail ID). When you use Windows Phone, you log in once with your WLID. That, in turn, gives you access to a variety of linked data services including Hotmail, Windows Live Photos, Find My Phone, and yes, your Xbox LIVE account. Many people have a Windows LIVE ID (WLID for short) associated with their own personal email address, and if you have a Hotmail account you also already have a WLID.

    Here is one great article by Bonnie Cha who explains what to expect from Windows Phone 7.

    In February 2010, Microsoft introduced Windows Phone 7 to the world. A complete overhaul of the company's mobile operating system, Microsoft got the tech world excited about it again with its fresh user interface, added features, and promises of improved performance. We've had to wait a long nine months since then to see if Windows Phone 7 actually delivers everything it promises, but we finally got a chance to find out.

    Damian Schenkelman announces that the Prism Training Kit he and Matias Bonaventura created has been released.

    Over the last week, Matias and I took some time to work on something a Prism Training Kit. We figured out that was one of the things that would be useful to learn Prism. Therefore, we decided to create a set of Hands on Labs that cover the basic topics addressed by Prism (if you can’t wait to download the TK, go here).

    Bob Bartholomay has posted a quick video showing how he used NineGrids.

    My last post spoke of Peter Blois’ NineGrid.dll and how it can be used to do Nine Scale in Silverlight.

    SilverlightShow Page for all Silverlight and Windows Phone 7 (WP7) things on TwitterPeter Qian has prepared some general guidelines on making your serialization experience better.

    With the release of Windows Phone 7, developers using WCF Data Service Client often find themselves needing to preserve the state their data context is in, and be able to continue from a previously saved state. This is called “Tombstoning” an app – the process which the phone framework notifies the app for shutting down, and later on coming back online. As a result we have been looking at designing a set of APIs to make saving and restore the client state an easy process. The already released CTP contains a “preview” to what we think the API should look like. Since then we’ve had a number of iterations on the design while incorporating feedbacks from the community.

    I'm a Windows Phone 7 user and I really like it so far, I like the Metro UI. What a introduction sentence for a mainly negatively post about the differentiation of Apps, isn't it? I write this here, because it starts to get boring, nearly all apps that using Pivot are black & white? Not that I don't like the simplicity but I think that doesn't mean to only use mainly 2 colors and these color on nearly every app in the Marketplace.
