Windows Phone 8: Compile in the Cloud Installing the Windows Phone 8 SDK

Windows Phone 8 Article Series Started

It's now two years, almost to the day, since I have received my first Windows Phone device - a shiny Samsung Omnia 7 that allowed me to develop and test applications outside the emulator for the first time. The device is still around and serves well, even though I personally have moved on to a Lumia. I may have switched devices, but I never considered switching to a different platform. I still love Windows Phone, both as a user and as a developer. So naturally, now that the Windows Phone 8 platform and tools have been officially launched and are available publically to everyone, I want to pick up writing articles again to "bring the joy" of all the new features to the developer community :).

The first part of an open-ended series of articles on Windows Phone 8 talks about the platform itself, and what dramatic changes have been introduced to it under the hood. You can find the article over at SilverlightShow:

Windows Phone 8: Introduction to the Platform

As always, feedback and comments are very welcome. Let me know if you have anything to say on what I write, or if you want to see some particular details covered in an upcoming part. Have fun!
