We’ve finished all the writing for the book, and it’s now winging it’s way to the printers. This week I finished converting all my sample code to Visual Basic so that we’ll have two versions of all the sample code in the book. I have to thank all of the people behind the book, the team at MS Press and my fellow authors for making my first writing experience such a pleasant one. I’m eagerly looking forward to seeing the finished book later in May. Just when I thought it was safe to kick back and relax I’ll be off to Las Vegas for MEDC 2007 on Monday.
This years event promises to be a great one – lots of content on Visual Studio Orcas, .NETCF 3.5 and a refreshed version of the Windows Mobile 6 SDKs. I’ll be taking part in one of the panel discussion session, along with my fellow authors, members of the .NET Compact Framework team and OpenNETCF. The session is on both Wednesday and Thursday so you should find one to fit your schedule.
I look forward to seeing you in Las Vegas!

I’m really excited for the book. How much of the book is theory vs implementation? Wish I could make to MEDC – please post feedback on MEDC!
Finally, a new book about mobile development. I’ll sure buy it!
I’m also attending MEDC 2007, so maybe I’ll see you at the panel discussion session.
Joshua – The book takes a hands-on approach so we hope that the topics we cover and the way that we cover them allows you to apply them to real world code, rather than simply providing a reference to the tools and framework functionality available.
