Default Visual Basic Comes to Windows Phone 7

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://windowsteamblog.com/windows_phone/b/wpdev/archive/2010/09/23/visual-basic-comes-to-windows-phone-7.aspx' target='_blank'>http://windowsteamblog.com/windows_...ws-phone-7.aspx</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"That wait is over. You can now download the Visual Basic CTP for Windows Phone Developer Tools. Provided in this download are all the templates, designer support, emulator (and phone!) support and IntelliSense for Visual Basic. We're not formally announcing the schedule for when Visual Basic will be fully supported. We're giving VB developers early access to the Windows Phone 7 platform so that they can start thinking about what amazing apps they want to build."</em></p><p>Most programming languages aren't super difficult to learn. Visual Basic is super difficult to remain ignorant in. While often the punchline of a joke regarding programmer's abilities, VB does provide a nice atmosphere to rapidly create apps, some aren't even that bad! And now it's coming to WP7. Not a bad thing for the smaller app writer looking to jump onto a platform.</p>
