Surface Namespace?

Many thanks for sharing your work, I am keen on developing on WP7 and have a quick question.

Is it possible to start work on WP7 development now with VS2010 ( I have this installed)

If so can I use you libararies as I can't seem to build them at the moment... (Error 3 The type or namespace name 'Surface' does not exist in the namespace 'Microsoft' ) 

Any help would be much appreciated. Look forward to the book release.

This library is not designed for Windows Phone 7. It is for Windows client or Surface applications using WPF 4.

The Surface library is referring to the Microsoft Surface SDK in Blake.NUI.WPF.Surface or Surface Toolkit in Blake.NUI.WPF.SurfaceToolkit. You can change the project configuration to disable compilation of those projects. You can download Surface Toolkit beta from:

Hi Josh, Thanks for the reply, I will investigate the toolkit anyway but I'm specifically interested in WP7. Many Thanks, Andy
