New to smart phones
Posted on 2011-03-12
I am a C# ASP.NET developer with distant roots in developing for DOS and Windows, and lately some web. I have a background in C++, OOP, OOD, and in the last 6 years moved into C#, then SQL Server, LINQ, Entity Framework (4.0) andf Dynamic Data.
I want to make a major new effort to get into smart phones but have only experience with Java applets on a Motolora phone, as a developer not as the architect.
What OS platforms are there to choose from?
What dev. environments?
I assume I'd become a member of the IOS Developer Program to develop for the iPhone. I assume I must to post/sell my app. But is their tool the only way to go? What language is it?
Any way for me to use C#/LINQ/EF4 on smart phone applications?
