Palm webOS by Mitch Allen

By Mitch Allen

A be aware from the writer and from O'Reilly Media approximately what this bookdoes--and doesn't--do:

Palm webOS is a new platform and represents a really assorted style ofoperating approach the place the net runtime is used because the foundation for the UI andApplication version. Palm and O'Reilly felt that it used to be very important to have abook on hand to aid builders get a uncomplicated realizing of the recent Palmplatform on the time that the SDK was once published; this timing performed a majorrole within the content material and constitution of the book.

Ideally this publication could were an entire reference of the hot platformbut that wasn't attainable because the content material was once written even as asthe software program SDK was once being constructed by way of the Palm engineering crew. The bookdoes offer a whole evaluate of Palm webOS, a radical description ofthe software version and provides info on many key layout techniques. Thereare descriptions and examples of UI widgets, prone, storage,notifications, dashboards and heritage purposes, serving as a greatintroduction yet now not as a definitive source.

The publication makes use of an easy information reader software to demonstrate the technicaldescriptions however the examples will not be meant to function a cookbooktutorial. skilled builders might be capable of use the examples to buildup a operating program bankruptcy by way of bankruptcy yet others would possibly not locate theloose descriptions enough for recreating the applying unaided. additional time, those diversified wishes might be crammed by means of different books, yet in themeantime we are hoping that this e-book will serve a worthy position introducingdevelopers to webOS and giving them a fashion of having begun with webOSapplication development.

A moment printing of the publication will replace any unique assurance obsoleted bysubsequent Mojo SDK builds. For vendors of the unique printing of the book,all of those updates are published at the "View/Submit Errata" hyperlink (please seeleft-hand column of this internet page).

Thanks for figuring out that ebook publishing and assurance of speedily movingtechnologies can occasionally be an inexact technology; we knew there'd be a needfor a booklet comparable to Palm webOS: The Insider's advisor to DevelopingApplications in JavaScript utilizing the Palm MojoT Framework, and there'scertainly no greater individual to put in writing that publication that Mitch Allen; that said,we needless to say since it is this kind of new working procedure and SDK, therewould (and will remain) adjustments that at most sensible cannot be documented andexplored till new printings of the books are published. meanwhile wewill be diligent in posting updates to this book's O'Reilly Media catalogpage.


This is the reliable advisor to development local JavaScript functions for Palm's new cellular working procedure, Palm® webOS™. Written via Palm's software program leader know-how officer in addition to the Palm webOS improvement group, Palm webOS presents an entire educational at the layout rules, structure, UI, instruments, and prone essential to increase webOS applications-including the Mojo JavaScript framework and Palm's SDK.

Palm webOS is designed to help a quick and excellent consumer event utilizing proven internet criteria, so in case you are acquainted with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, you are prepared to construct purposes for any webOS-based machine, together with the Palm Pre. you will achieve services, bankruptcy through bankruptcy, as you construct a operating cellular software in the course of the process the publication. you are going to additionally tips on how to expand present internet apps to paintings with the hot iteration of cell phones.

  • Get a radical assessment of the webOS platform and architecture
  • Understand the severe ideas for program layout: what separates webOS from different net and cellular platforms
  • Learn the main points of Mojo's improvement instruments and SDK for development and trying out cellular applications
  • Examine top practices, vital concerns, and guiding rules for constructing with webOS and the Mojo framework

Handbook of Science and Technology Convergence by William Sims Bainbridge, Mihail C. Roco

By William Sims Bainbridge, Mihail C. Roco

Scientists and engineers have lengthy been conscious of the stress among slender specialization and multidisciplinary cooperation, yet now a huge transformation is in approach that may require technical fields to mix way more successfully than previously within the provider of human gain. This instruction manual will catalog the entire methods this is often comprehensive and the explanations it needs to be. Nature is a unmarried coherent process and numerous tools of clinical and engineering investigations may still mirror this interlinked and dynamic solidarity. consequently, normal innovations and concepts might be built systematically in interdependence, with cause-and-effect pathways, for superior results in wisdom, know-how and purposes. whilst, commercial and social functions depend upon integration of disciplines and unification of information. hence, convergence is either a primary precept of nature and a well timed chance for human growth. This guide will signify the fruits of fifteen years of workshops, meetings and guides that at the beginning explored the connections among nanotechnology, biotechnology, details know-how and new applied sciences in response to cognitive technological know-how. a continuing emphasis on human profit then drew within the social sciences, at the same time shared medical and moral ideas introduced in sustainability of the Earth setting and the problem of equitable monetary development. The highbrow contributions of actually thousands of scientists and engineers verified a couple of examine equipment and analytical ideas which could unite disparate fields. The end result has been referred to as Convergence of data and know-how for the advantage of Society (CKTS), outlined because the escalating and transformative interactions between probably diverse disciplines, applied sciences, groups and domain names of human job to accomplish mutual compatibility, synergism and integration.
