This chapter explains the essential idioms and programming styles used by the Tizen native APIs that you should follow in your own code. Time spent becoming familiar with these concepts now will pay off later in your development efforts; so while these may not be the most glamorous topics, they’re arguably the most important.
If you design your code with proper error handling, log information to help with debugging, and understand the object ownership rules, your code will be easier to maintain and debug. By becoming familiar with manipulating Tizen’s core data types, such as strings, collections, and date and time, you can spend more of your development time on the details of your applications. This chapter will help you start to master these Tizen development essentials.
In this section, you’ll learn how the Tizen approach to error handling compares with standard C++ exceptions ...
