Palm Pre Development Workshop
Join us on Saturday the 5th for the Portland Pre Development Workshop. Everyone is welcome to attend, no prior programming experience is needed.
What is a Pre? The Pre refers to the Palm Pre, a new competitor in the Smartphone market. Why develop for the Pre? The pre offers a simple but comprehensive SDK that is easy to build on but is also powerful. The Pre has a flourishing open source community. Why is the Pre so good? There are many reasons why the Pre is a good development platform. The big reason is potential. While the SDK only allows web coding with additional API's, the core of the system is Linux, which already has a large community. What do I need for a Pre Development Workshop? Please bring a laptop with the SDK already installed. The SDK can be downloaded from http://developer.palm.com I also recommend installing the eclipse platform with the Mojo plug-in.
