Time is the most valuable commodity to all developers. This books objective is to help developers become familiar with the Windows Embedded CE development environment quickly and efficiently. This book is written to provide the much needed information resources to help developer save time and gain critical knowledge quickly to take advantage of the Rapid-Application-Development environment provided by Windows Embedded CE. With todays current fast paced, unforgiving technology market, rapid application development, fast time-to-market, manageable development risk and cost are key factors contributing to the success of any project. With its long successful track record as the leading software development tool of choice for many developers, Visual Studio has a huge existing user base and growing. By using the Visual Studio 2008 development environment, programmers can accomplish development tasks for Windows CE 6.0 projects rapidly. Existing Visual Studio developers can leverage the skills they already have and adapt them to develop applications for Windows Embedded CE in a short amount of time. Windows Embedded CE provides one of the best embedded development environments from the overall cost, risk, and time-to-market perspectives. As key companies adapt and use Windows Embedded CE as their choice of platform for product development, the need for developers with Windows Embedded CE knowledge will rapidly increase. The primary objective for this book is to provide how-to information with working examples so developers can learn the overall Windows Embedded CE development environment quickly and effectively. This book will show how different pieces of Windows Embedded CE components come together to help programmers develop and build devices.
