.NET Compact Framework presentation links

A big thank you for all those that turned out for my presentation at the Christchurch branch of the New Zealand .NET User Group. There was quite a large turnout, and I hope that you all found some value in my presentation.

This was my first presentation of any form, and it was a very useful learning experience. I have defiantly learnt some things which will help improve future presentations I may present. I would be interested in hearing any feedback you may have on my presentation (good or bad), both in content and the way it was presented.

For those that could not make it (I know there were a few), I have uploaded the powerpoint presentation to www.slideshare.net. During the presentation I mentioned that I would provide a list of related website references for the various topics and products discussed, these have been attached to the bottom of this posting.

If anyone would like to discuss Windows Mobile development topics (native or managed), please feel free to get in contact with me. For development problems I would suggest trying the MSDN Forums website, as there are a number of active participants found there (including myself).

Development Environments

.NET CF – Platform Support

Screen Differences

Image Capture
Remember that these classes can be used in both .NET CF 1.0 and .NET CF 2.0 applications. They are however only present on Windows Mobile 5.0 or higher devices.

Network Communications
Disconnected Service Agent – a way to “cache” web service method calls when disconnected from the network and to automatically execute them when the connection comes back. See Smart Client Software Factory links below for the full documentation, or see the following post on MSDN forums for a brief overview.

    Hi Chris,

    I thought you did a great job of the presentation, everyone else I’ve spoken to enjoyed it as well. I’m looking forward to the next series where you dig into memory management and performance optomization on the compact framework (hint,hint)!

    Keep up the good work.


  2. Thanks for the positive feedback David, I really appreciate it.

    I have not had a chance to view them yet, but there hav been a couple of recent MSDN Webcasts which look interesting:

    Building High-Performance Applications Using the .NET Compact Framework
    Improving Application Performance Using Diagnostic Tools in the .NET Compact Framework

  3. I found your blog on google and read a few of your other posts. I just added you to my Google News Reader. Keep up the good work. Look forward to reading more from you in the future.
