This book is excellent. I would recommend it to anyone doing PDA development.
Rating: 5 out of 5
Well, I had pretty high expectations on this book. I never did any PDA development before the Compact Framework, and I was browsing PDA books one day. I came across Rob's last book and bought it just because it was so interesting. Dan Fergus had told me about Rob's new book (and if you haven't bought Dan's new book, the Definitive Guide to the Compact Framework, but it with this one b/c they are both MUST haves) and I figured it'd be really cool.
i was right. Why? Well, Rob is, if nothing else, informed and interesting. He makes you want to read more. he covers all of the normal Pitfalls and Gotcha's that you normally encounter with CE development (and yes, there are a few).
His discussion on Security alone justifies buying this book. Everything else is icing on the cake. And very good icing it is.
Of the few people that truly understand a complex subject, even fewer know how to teach others. Rob is unquestionably one of these individuals, and his book is a bargain at any price!

A book that focuses on database programming using SQL Server CE. More importantly (and let me say "finally!"), this book uses Visual Studio .NET 2003 and the .NET Compact Framework instead of still using the stand alone Mobile Information Toolkit and the older Visual Studio .NET product.
VS .NET 2003 makes developing applications soooo easy that a developer that has created a Windows form application can whip out a Pocket PC application in a matter of minutes.
Building an application that is robust and corporate ready; however, requires a more robust database. It also makes the application a bit more complex.
SQL Server CE is the database I choose for my applications. This book addresses all of the questions I've run into up to this point. Since answering questions is what I am using the book for, what more can I say!
