Volume I contains the first 50 apps and covers fully exploiting phone features such as the application bar, hardware/software keyboards, multi-touch, accelerometer, microphone, and more; using rich controls such as pivots, panoramas, and controls in free toolkits, such as date/time pickers, toggle switches, charts, and graphs; and building your own custom controls, including popular ones missing from the platform, such as a checkable list box, multi-select picker box, and color picker. Volume II is slated for release this fall.
Break Away with Intel Atom Processors: A Guide to Architecture Migration
by Lori Matassa and Max Domeika
In this book, frequent Dr. Dobb's contributors Lori Matassa and Max Domeika provide insight into architecture migration, discussing real world software migration issues and highlighting them with case studies. Pertinent topics that are at the heart of the software migration, such as techniques to port code originally written for other processor architectures, as well as capturing the benefits of Intel Atom platform technologies are discussed. The reality is that architecture migration is not a one-size-fits-all activity and developers must understand all of the decisions that comprise a successful migration. The authors deliver this information as a handbook to your software migration plan and project activities.
