Written By The Ones on Tuesday, April 28, 2009 | 4:54 AM

With the advent of Windows 7, developers will look to tailor their applications to the next iteration of the Windows client. And in the context in which it delivers enhancements for end users, Windows 7 also poses new challenges for developers, challenges by no means limited only to compatibility and support. In fact, existing Windows programs will have to evolve in order to take full advantage of the improvements brought to the table by
the operating system. And with Windows 7 Release Candidate just around the corner, the best time to start is now, and Microsoft has the right developer-centric resources available.

“Ok Development Partners, it’s time to rock with Windows 7. With RC1 coming soon to a download center near you, what better way is there to begin thinking hard about Windows 7 development than a series of 10 online courses to get you pumped up on new ideas for solving real-world business problems,” revealed John McClelland, partner evangelist, D&PE East Region Team.

The MSDev website is a location where developers can access a variety of training resources. Under the title “A Developer's First Look at Windows 7” Microsoft is offering solution providers no less than 10 videos designed to permit them to adapt their programs to the successor of Windows Vista. The content is focused on Windows 7-specific enhancements including the new graphical user interface, the Superbar, Federated Search, the Ribbon/Fluent GUI, etc.

“A Developer's First Look at Windows 7 - This series introduces Windows 7 with an emphasis on those new features that will be of most interest and use to developers. It consists of: two introductory sessions, one focusing on the new user interface, and one on behind-the-scenes features, two hour-long sessions that cover compatibility and security issues, six shorter sessions which focus on coding for a single new feature,” McClelland added.
