The Visual Studio for Devices team has been posting a very interesting and informative series on the CoreCon API.  I highly encourage anyone interested in writing remote tools to read the series.  In fact, I recommend everyone interested in developing applications and/or tools for devices to subscribe to their RSS feed.

As of this posting, there are five installments to the series:
Part I
Part II
Part III
Part IV
Part V

Enjoy!
