While MIX10 is taking place, it is expected that Microsoft anounces a Silverlight beta release along with developer tools for Symbian (running on Nokia S60 5th Edition platform, source) and also for Windows Phone 7 series.
I’ve been developing web app’s since I’ve started my career but I had the chance to develop some mobile app’s as well, and I gotta tell you, for me developing for mobile devices is very challenging and much more interesting than web app’s.
I really enjoy .NET Compact Framework but when you want to do some cool UX stuff it’s a pain in the butt.
Last couple of years I’ve been working mostly with Silverlight/WPF and I’ve been waiting for a Silverlight release for Windows Mobile 7 (now called Windows Phone 7 series) for a long time.
I can’t wait until I start developing for mobile devices with Silverlight, and now being able to target Symbian devices as well it feels like the cherry on top of the cake.
On a side note, I’ll be attending Microsoft’s technology event in Portugal, Techdays 2010 on 20th,21st,22nd of April, and I’ll be most interested on Architecture, Web/UX, Mobility and Cloud sessions. I hope everyone has a chance to participate!
