O'Reilly Releases First Palm Computing Platform Programming Guide

SEBASTOPOL, CA--O'Reilly and Associates, publishers of David Pogue's bestselling PalmPilot: The Ultimate Guide, have followed-up their successful entry into the Palm Pilot arena by publishing the first Palm Computing platform programmers' Palm Programming: The Developer's Guide by Neil Rhodes and Julie McKeehan.

Palm Computing will be using Palm Programming: The Developer's Guide as their official developer's guide. The authors worked closely with Palm Computing, Inc., a 3Com Company, to ensure that the book is tailored exactly to the needs of an ever-growing group of Palm developers, and Palm will be using it as a key part of their training materials for developers. Palm Programming shows intermediate to experienced C programmers how to build a Palm application from the ground up. With a clear, concise tutorial approach, this book gives readers everything necessary to create a wide range of Palm applications and HotSync( conduits, from simple scripts through full-blown applications. It includes a CD-ROM (Macintosh and Windows compatible) with the full source code to the examples in the book, a trial version of Palm's Software Development Kit, and third-party developer tools, including Metrowerks' CodeWarrior Lite programming kit. This is the book to get if you're developing for the Palm Pilot.
