    Welcome to the Windows 7 for Developers Blog!

    Posted: 30 Mar 2009
    Hello everyone and welcome to the first post of the updated Windows 7 for Developers blog. My name is Yochay Kiriaty and I am a Technical Evangelist on the Developer and Platform Evangelism Team, mainly focusing on the developer story for Windows 7. As Technical Evangelist, I get to work a lot with the product group as well as with our partners - that is, you developers. This enables me to become very familiar with the product, its engineering and APIs, and at the same time gain an understanding of the needs of the Windows 7 application developer community.

    This blog will focus mainly on the developer aspects of Windows 7 and provide valuable content for developers. We want to make this blog a “one stop shop” on the road to getting yourself familiar with what Windows 7 has to offer for developers and how you can “Light-Up” your application by using Windows 7 features.

    With your help, this blog should evolve to become a sort of Windows 7 developer content index. Down the road, if you want to write some code using one of Windows 7 new features and APIs, we hope that you will be able to find some reference to that topic in this blog. If you don’t find it, please feel free to comment and we’ll pick up that subject as quickly as possible. In case you have content you want to share, ping us so we can write a post and reference your content.

    You can also expect this blog to have lots of code samples, and cool demos showcasing some of the new Window 7 features. You can also expect this blog to include webcasts with the Windows development group. For examples here are some links to already existing Channel 9 webcasts on Programming Windows 7 Taskbar and Ribbon, and other Windows 7 webcasts on Channel 9

    Finally, this blog is part of an effort to highlight the Windows 7 developer story, a story that for some reason got lost with Windows Vista. The Windows 7 Developer and Platform Evangelism Team hope that together with you and the rest of the developers in the development community, we will be able to create an open and direct conversation about developing for Windows 7. 

    You can read more about Windows 7-related entries posted on our previous site.
