On Monday this week I just started a new job on the planning and strategy team in the Windows Phone division at Microsoft. I’ll be working on the developer platform for the team and the work will likely be a lot of research, analysis and coding. Right now, I’m brand new to phone development so I’m trying to learn as much about writing phone apps ASAP. I am also very much looking forward to all the new stuff I have to learn.
I have really enjoyed my time working in the SharePoint team. It’s a great team with really good people and a fantastic product. I hope a lot more people will get good value from all of the technical content that I’ve been involved in for SharePoint. Thank you to all the people I’ve worked with in the SharePoint community. The SharePoint MVPs have been really great to work with especially and I’ve made lots of friends from this group.
This will be somewhat of a reset for me. This is not SharePoint, and it’s not Windows Workflow Foundation that I worked on before that. So, I’m looking to collect pointers to guides for trying out all the things available to developers of Windows Phone apps. I’ll publish what I learn and some Windows Phone developer getting started references as I go. If you have a favourite code sample on Windows Phone, please send me a link!!
