In 1986, Paul Yao and David Durant co-authored the first book on Windows Programming - back before anyone had an inkling that Windows would become what it is today. And now, these two pioneering technical wizards have teamed up again to help a new generation of programmers learn about an important new technology: the .NET Compact Framework.

Paul and Dave are simultaneously writing two Compact Framework books: one with all C# samples, the other with all VB samples. (The samples are going to be made available for download to registered users.) Prior to the publication, all chapters from both books will be made available on this website for public review and comment.

Why Have a Public Review?
"We were inspired by Bruce Eckel, who pioneered the idea of open reviews for programmer books," says Paul.  "Bruce has open reviews for all his most recent books. He says his readers give him feedback as he is writing to help him create better books."

Dave adds, "We are hoping our prospective readers will do the same for us. In exchange, Paul and I are working hard to make this the best book available on .NET Compact Framework programming. With the help of reviewers around the world, we feel confident we can achieve this ambitious goal."
