You can do it using Visual Studio .Net, but you don't have to.  .Net has some great tools available to you to help you out.


If you really want to use .Net (you don't have to, but I personally would), you will need to use the compact framework

Start with this page:

Then go here (the page above is item 1 in this list):

In a nutshell, programming for Windows CE or a PDA is pretty straight forward.  You build an application using the .Net Compact Framwork, compile it, and then you download the compact framework and your new application onto your PDA (or windows CE) and away you go!
