5.0 out of 5 stars Finally ... excellent reference for native code developers 14 Aug 2010
By Nomad - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Extremely useful for C programmers with at least a little experience with Windows programming (event-based GUI programming at any rate). Written for native code (C, C++) programmers. Covers common controls, networking, device-to-device communication, multithreading, the registry, device driver programming ... fairly comprehensive list of topics. Does not cover direct X, audio, telephony. Up to date. Lots of complete code listings in the book. Downloadable resources from Microsoft Press website are excellent, more than just the source code for the examples in the book -- includes CE SDK for Visual Studio and an emulator. Highly recommended introduction to Win Mobile programming and exactly what I was looking for.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful reference 14 July 2010
By André Lehmann - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book fulfils almost everything I was expecting.
It covers a broad scope of programming tasks for Windows CE.
I would recommend it.

Missing: some sort of media or link for source code samples.
(Retype the contents of a 15 pages project?)

4.0 out of 5 stars Native Windows CE programming essentials 25 Jun 2008
By Vyacheslav Lanovets - Published on Amazon.com
Douglas Boling knows much more than is written in this book. You can say that from reading his MSDN articles and from other people mentioning him in the blogs. Unfortunately, this book tries to cover too much topics without any advanced details.

But I've read through this book in spite of the fact that I initially read this book in 2nd edition and skimmed through 3rd edition in the past. I cannot really like the book because I was expecting that it would split in two parts: user-mode/UI development and kernel mode/system programming.

Still I recommend it to any developer (even working with .Net Compact Framework) to become familiar with Windows CE programming. In fact, there is no other option, this is the only such book and it's quite good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book for beginners and experienced programmers 7 July 2008
By PV - Published on Amazon.com
This book is a good book for programmers working on Windows CE based devices. The reason I did not give it 5 stars is because I think the section on drivers is a little thin.
5.0 out of 5 stars The standard for Windows CE programming 16 Jun 2013
By M. Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've had several editions of this book, and it just keeps getting better. As an introductory guide, this is simple and clear. Boling has kept up with the new features in subsequent Windows Mobile versions, and the examples are very clear. Of all the CE books I've used, this is the best.
