In an increasingly mobile world, millions of developers with Windows programming experience need to quickly transfer their skills to creating compact, asynchronous CE applications. This book presents a roadmap to guide developers through the intricate tasks of porting and reworking Win32 applications to enable them to run efficiently and usefully on Windows CE-based mobile devices.
* Presents a set of metrics for developers to determine when and how best to proceed in porting Win32 applications
* Shows developers how to understand the embedded-system bias inherent in Windows CE and how to write applications that use this as a strength
* Covers Unicode, which is mandatory for Windows CE, and explains how to consider the effect of various screen resolutions
