On Monday I had the opportunity to present the MIX 2010 Day 1 Keynote in Las Vegas (you can watch a video of it here).  In the keynote I announced the release of the Silverlight 4 Release Candidate (we'll ship the final release of it next month) and the VS 2010 RC tools for Silverlight 4.  I also had the chance to talk for the first time about how Silverlight and XNA can now be used to build Windows Phone 7 applications.

During my talk I did two quick Windows Phone 7 coding demos using Silverlight – a quick "Hello World" application and a "Twitter" data-snacking application.  Both applications were easy to build and only took a few minutes to create on stage.  Below are the steps you can follow yourself to build them on your own machines as well.

[Note: In addition to blogging, I am also now using Twitter for quick updates and to share links. Follow me at:]

Windows Mobile has the ability to reformat itself directly from its menu system. If you are giving your phone away or selling it, it is a good idea to format it first. Additionally, formatting is a quick way to free up storage if your phone is full on memory. Just be sure you back up your important files if you choose to do this.
