We had 3rd Singapore Silverlight User Group meetup at hackspace yesterday. Chris from Microsoft gave amazing talk about Silverlight for Windows Phone 7. It was really fun.. Hope to see you guys next month.
As .NET compact framework never support System.Reflection.Emit, we can’t use Reflection.Emit in Windows Phone 7 development. So, it prevents us from porting the existing frameworks like Unity, Castle Dynamic Proxy, Moq and etc to Windows Phone 7 development platform. I was looking all options that helps us to use Reflection.Emit in Phone 7. The first option that I check is to port Mono code to Silverlight for Phone 7 version. The second option is to use Mono Cecil that is using in Mono Core. And the third option is to use EmitCF but I don’t see any update after beta release so I guess this project is dead already. So, I decided to give a try on Mono Cecil.
Mono Cecil supports Silverlight, Compact Framework and .NET desktop version. So, it’s very easy to make Cecil work on Phone 7. All I have to do is to create a conditional called CF in csproj file and then it will work like a charm. I submitted a patch to Mono Cecil but Jb Evain said that he doesn’t want to provide csproj officially so I will make the files downloadable here.

We are gonna have “Singapore Silverlight User Group” 3rd meetup on April 22. Chris Ismael from Microsoft Singapore will talk about Silverlight for Windows Phone 7. Game Development and Mobile Application Development are very popular in Singapore. So, I believe that Chris’s section will be very interesting for you guys. Please come. See you there..
Today, I have received MVP Award Kit from Microsoft today. I’m very happy about that. I like to say thank you so much to Microsoft, Lilian, Windy, Justin Angle, Justin Lee, Alex, Chris and everyone who are in Silverlight community.
