PalmSource Exhibiting ALP at LinuxWorld SF
PalmSource will be exhibiting the Access Linux Platform at LinuxWorld San Francisco, August 14-17th. There will also be a special PalmSource Developer Day, which includes a number of sessions on ALP and will give Palm OS developers a first chance to try out existing Palm OS applications on ALP.
The PalmSource Developer Day will take place on Wednesday, August 16th, and is targeted towards Linux Application Developers who are interested in taking their applications mobile. Attendees will get an overview of the components of the new leading platform for mobile devices--the ACCESS Linux Platform (ALP) and will receive early access and hands-on experience building applications for this new platform. Topics for this one-day event will be presented by Tom Chavez, Sr. Product Manager for PalmSource and Keithen Hayenga, Licensee Services Engineer for PalmSource.
The programs and topics include:
“Introduction to ACCESS Linux Platform (ALP).” This is a hands-on session that will describe the ACCESS Linux Platform (ALP) and details its open source architecture. PalmSource will also demonstrate ALP and transform a typical Hello World application into an ALP application ready for mobile device deployment. Attendees will run sample applications as well as have the opportunity to build one together as a group.
“Deep Dive into ACCESS Linux Platform (ALP).” In this session PalmSource and attendees will take the ALP application from the Hands-On intro and add GUI controls with Glade, introduce special mobile device event handlers and show debugging an ALP application via Eclipse on the Simulator.
Compatibility Station. A unique and special experience for attendees, PalmSource will invite Palm OS developers to try their existing applications on ALP and discuss compatibility strategies with onsite PalmSource engineers.
“Extending an ALP Application.” In this final session PalmSource will add more features to the application from the Deep Dive Session, including accessing a SQLite database for information storage and retrieval. PalmSource will provide go-forward advice and guidance to help you plan and prepare your projects to support ALP.
LinuxWorld San Francisco takes place August 14-17 at the Moscone Center in downtown SF. The one-day PalmSource Developer Day conference is free to attendees who purchase a conference package. Single day tickets can also be purchased separately for $95.
