Did you know Windows 7 has built in multi-touch API's? Have you been wondering how to convert your current application to be touch enabled? Perhaps you want to develop the next cool slate PC app? Maybe you would like to start developing for touch but are wondering how to get started in C++, Silverlight, or WPF.

There are several resource documents available and the Windows Touch Guidance document does a great job pulling all of the information into a single document including the following:

  • Design Principles - Recommendations on application design
  • Windows 7 Touch APIs - Windows 7 Touch, Gesture, and Manipulation APIs
  • Developer Platform Choices - Windows 7 developer platform support for Windows Touch
  • Windows Touch developer resources
