New MultiPlatform Handheld Dev Kit
MobileWizardry had announced SHARK, a new development kit primarily focused on building applications for handheld computing. It allows any programmer to build and target a number of handheld devices and platforms with a single code base.
Shark allows any programmer to build, with elementary C/C++ programming knowledge to a number of handheld devices - namely, PalmOS®, Pocket PC, Smartphone 2002, Symbian Series 60 and Windows™ Platform (additional platforms can be provided on request).
The kit is solely based on abstraction, with the creation of new API's specifically optimized for handheld computing; allows the development of a single source code base to be easily and quickly recompiled/distributed on multiple platforms at the same time.
Aaron Ardiri, co-founder of MobileWizardry says "SHARK allows the developer to work solely under the Windows™ development environment (using Visual Studio) to develop the concept application using well established development kits without the need to get into the specialities of each handheld platform they need to target. The development of a simple abstraction layer has made it possible to build the basic building blocks required for multi-platform development, in addition to providing opportunities to have higher level libraries written on top of the abstraction layer function on more than one platform."
