Default Copy and paste WP7 OS update here for developers...

Engadget is reporting that the Copy and Paste update for the WP7 OS has now been released to developers.

Hopefully that means we are <days?> away from the public release of their update.

Bring it on !

Awesome.

Developing for Windows Phone is a lot of fun. Frustrating at times, but the results are always real nice.

I am reading "Programming Windows Phone 7" by Charles Petzold. Do you think the free tools and SDK available are enough to create something interesting?

I'm a n00b dev, and have churned out some examples of what you can do:

I'm pretty sure the free tools should be enough.

Thank you. But WP7 seems as XML verbose as Android. I still do not believe that XML is really human-readable...

Visual studio does an excellent, excellent job cleaning things up for you. Just know some basic XML structure and you should be good to go (most of the stuff you can just copy and paste from the internet anyway)

I always liked MS dev tools, but the free versions used to miss the database components. I got a VB6 (Pro?) box on sale once. It was when .NET was launched; too late...
