Migrating From WP7 To Mango–Getting Started

A Windows Phone Mini-Series

There are hundreds of great new features in Mango, and Windows Phonemango with a leaf and a slice programmers will want that transition to be as smooth as possible.  Margaret Parsons and I have been busily collecting links to articles, videos and blog posts that will help with the transition. We’ll be presenting them here as a mini-series on Migrating From Windows Phone 7 To Mango.

We start with links to postings that will help you get setup with the new SDK.  Once you have the new SDK, be sure to check this article on Installing the new Windows Phone SDK.

If you want to upgrade an existing Windows 7 application, this article will show you how to upgrade your application.

Finally, here is the announcement of the new SDK, complete with links for cross-submitting your applications.
