The Official Palm Developer Site

3Com’s official Palm developer page is:

http://www.palm.com/devzone

It is the place you should go to check for the most recent versions of the SDK, CDK, and information on updates to the operating system. There are also a lot of other resources at this site—everything from white papers on various topics to Palm’s FAQ for developers.

Getting Your Application Creator ID

Palm’s developer site is also where you go to register your application and obtain your application’s unique creator ID. A creator ID is a four-ASCII-character ID that each application needs to distinguish itself from all other applications. This is an essential part of application development and you shouldn’t leave it until the last minute. For registration instructions, check:
