Windows Phone 7 Goes Back To Basic

Visual Basic is one of the most popular, and arguable easiest to learn, programming languages on the planet, and it’s going to plug in very nicely to Windows Phone 7. This is a CTP (community technical preview) of Visual Basic for Windows Phone 7, and should lower the barrier for developing a WP7 app even further. The other cool thing, is that older versions of Windows Mobile used VB, so it may be possible for developers to port the core of apps into the new OS.

The build of VB isn’t final yet, so it might be a little while before we see a torrent of apps from the language, but the more the merrier, either way.
