To become familiar with the development of an application for the Windows Phone 7 we will create a simple Silverlight application: a form of tweets that are related to a particular topic.Environment and ToolsTo start, we must download and install the Windows Phone Developer Tools Beta, which allows us to develop applications using Visual Studio 2010 for Windows Phone 7. After doing this with VS 2010 we create a project using the template for Windows Phone Application. The solution generated by using the Windows Phone Application template contains a single draft Silverlight for Windows Phone, which has a similar structure to that of a Silverlight application for web or desktop.
