Windows phone 7 Developer Q&A: Lukas Lesko, Resco.net

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Windows Phone Developer" @ 07:00 AM

In part two of our ongoing series of Windows phone 7-focused developer articles, this is part two, with Lukas Lesco, Support Manager for resco.net. Resco has made some superb Windows Mobile applications over the years, so I was curious to get their take on what Windows phone 7 brings from a developer's perspective.

WPT: Looking at what Microsoft has announced at MIX10, what's your general impression of their development platform for the Windows phone 7?

Resco.net: On one hand we are looking forward to finding out more about the possibilities that this new platform brings. On the other hand, we are afraid of the restrictions that will be revealed. For example, the limited multi-tasking could bring more available resources, but on the other hand it can limit cooperation between applications. Also, the Marketplace could bring applications closer to users and bring better user feedback, but we are afraid that it will end up like the Apple Store; that is, filled with simple applications like games with no added value.

Windows phone 7 Developer Q&A: Alex Kac, WebIS

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Windows Phone Talk" @ 10:00 AM

We've had some intense discussions in our forums around the development story for Windows phone 7, but not being a developer myself, I don't have the insight required to understand how the radical changes Microsoft is implementing will impact the applications, and developers, that we're familiar with. This is part one of a short series of Q&A interviews I'm doing with some of the top Windows Mobile developers in this space. First up, we have Alex Kac the Founder/President of Web Information Solutions (WebIS).

WPT: Looking at what Microsoft has announced at MIX10, what's your general impression of their development platform for Windows phone 7?

WebIS: I'm pretty impressed by the development toolset and I think Microsoft has definitely made some good choices in their platform vision here. I'm really excited to see how far we can go with the tools and APIs. I understand that right now the APIs are pretty weak because you have to start somewhere and its really designed for consumer/feature phone type apps, but the foundation is really good so long term that's a good thing.
