I am writing a  Windows CE.Net application for CE 5.0.  Can someone give me some suggestions on how to optimize my code?  The UI and overall response time is quite slow.  This is a wireless network TCP/IP program with a lot of UI elements.  Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!!

Try not to have too many UI elements on a single form/screen.
If you break them out over tabs or separate forms that will improve some of the spped.

ozymadias is right. Other key issues involve a better understanding of the compiler and the IL , but there are some very basic things that can be done to optimise your code.
Have a look at http://codebetter.com/blogs/gregyoung/archive/2006/06/11/146343.aspx (yes, EE's very own top C# genius) on for loops as a start.
