Welcome aboard! Are you wanting to develop for IOs, Andriod, or WP7?

How do you know that you're interested in mobile apps and game development if you have no experience?

It is my experience that a lot of people come here and say they like game development while what they MEAN to say is that they like games and want an easy career, which game development is not.

Just my two cents! Welcome to Dream.In.Code, don't promote stereotypes!

Well, actually, i did some minor development on both platform before (a simple snake app), and of course i know that game development is not an easy task, but i DO know that i am interested in what those platforms are capable of, and i am interested in being able to do that myself,
what i mean is i dont really have real experience on developing an actual marketable application in general, and thats why im here to be better...

If you're interested in WP7 development, you'll definitely want to check out the XNA section, and it might be a good idea to check out all the articles that Core has posted on the site in the past couple of months. Core has posted tons of invaluable information for WP7 development and I think we might even have some WP7 tutorials in the Game Programming Tutorials section of this site.

EDIT: This link would perhaps be better than what I suggested earlier. An entire section about Windows Phone development.
