I am just getting started in windows mobile programming and this will be my first foray into C# also. I want some good resources on how to begin. I have a pda with windows mobile 2003 SE and visual studio.net (2003 if I remember correctly). any help would be appreciated. A tutorial would be wonderful.

Hello
I recommend to use Visual Studio 2005  and .Net Compact Framework 2.0 to develop for Pocket PC.
There are more features and controls supported

You will need the Professional version of Visual Studio.
Visual Studio 2003 is too old, I suggest to use at least Visual Studio 2005 Professional.
A good source of examples of Pocket PC applications and source code is The Code Project:

I do not want to upgrade right now, it can be rather expensive. Mikal, the site you recommended is nice, I would like some more though. Or if anyone can just point me in the direction of where to start. I am not sure how to compile a program I have written for one thing, do I simply write the code and run it through the windows mobile 2003 sdk?
Forced accept.
