My friends and me were having a casual chat on WP7 development and Android Development and slowly that became a hands-on session of ‘getting started’ on both the platforms.
A quick comparison on getting started on Android and WP7.
After preparing the development environment coding the ‘Hello World’ was relatively easier in Windows Phone 7.
All you need to do to code the ‘Hello World’ in WP7 was
1. Create a new WP7 project
and that takes you to the screen with lot of pre-populated XAML code to make the developer’s life easier. Also the VS 2010 with WP7 dev tools lets you design the front end directly on a WP7 GUI. That’s converted into the respective XAML with formatting automatically.
Edit the ‘page name’ in the XAML code and there you go. Our first ‘Hello World’ program is all done.
Please note that all the above are my personal views (especially from the Development perspective).
