There is a special program for talented high schoolers in PA called the "PA Governor's Sch of Info Technlgy" (PGSIT).
Pretty strong line-up of classes. (Visual Studio programming, distributed computing and networking, HCI, Information Ethics, S/W project management).
Tour of the TabletSDK
>>> C# is the language of choice.
>>> Lots of good examples to work with in the SDK (Freely available from MSFT)
>>> Very light code for these simple applications.
>>> e.g. Its so easy - a simple ToString methods converts ink to text!
Where did the inspiration come from? From the author's trip to TechEd conference.
