MEDC 2007 Singapore Slides Uploaded

You can now download my slide decks for the two sessions I presented at MEDC 2007 Singapore on 8th June 2007. Enjoy! Download all decks here.

[Updates] You can find the source code for the two presentations at here (SideShow) and here (Windows Mobile). These two are temporary locations until I find a permanent home for them. :-)

In addition, the application forms for the MCTS Prep Classes and the Windows Mobile 5.0 Programming Course can be downloaded here.

Hi Wei Meng,

Cool and refreshing presentations!. Btw, I couldn't find all the sample files promised during the MEDC presentation on your website.

Anyway,.. really refreshing presentations!.
And I guess the crowd love the jokes!

Thanks, Jon!
Absolutely, I am going to post my source code for the presentation. Just give me a few more hours and all these will be uploaded!

It is uploaded now. May I also know what is the tools you used to display the screen of your pocket pc on the screen for the session of network programming?.

Can I also type using keyboard on the pc (which will reflect typing on the pocket pc's screen)?. or it will only act as a remote viewer only (not a remote control).

After I tried looking around the code,.. somehow I could not find the bluetooth sample.

Is it missing somewhere?.

Wei-Meng Lee said...

Hi Jon:
The app I used was Remote Display Control. This is a free utility from Microsoft. You can control your Pocket PC either from your PC, or directly on your Pocket PC.
The Bluetooth example is inside the GPS folder. It is using the SerialPort class for communication ;-)

great samples. But I don't see anywhere in your sample in writing to serial port, so that windows mobile mapping application can translate/locate that NMEA string to pinpoint to an exact location.

Well, I tried using your sample by changing .read to .write

If serialPort.IsOpen Then
End If
With serialPort
.PortName = "COM3"
.BaudRate = 9600
.Parity = IO.Ports.Parity.None
.DataBits = 8
.StopBits = IO.Ports.StopBits.One
End With

Catch ex As Exception
End Try
