.NET Compact Framework Programming

for Non-Geniuses Lacking Infinite Cash

This is a book-in-progress licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 2.0 license. I'll be writing it over the next few months as I work toward completing a .NET Compact Framework project.

I started writing this out of frustration with the existing .NET Compact Framework books, all of which seemed to assume I was already an experienced .NET Framework programmer. I'm not, so I thought that writing this might let me relieve some frustrations, make sure I knew what I was doing as I moved from step to step, and share the information with other people in a similar situation.

I work for O'Reilly Media, Inc., but you definitely should not assume this book has been through their process or received any kind of blessing. It's a first draft, with no copyediting except what I do as I find mistakes.
