More About the Author

I'm a co-founder of Velos Mobile and have worked on mobile platforms for almost my entire career. Over the years I've written a variety of embedded and downloadable apps, including text and MMS messaging software, lifestyle apps, an app store, music-streaming apps, a video-exploration app, and other fun projects. I've developed on most mobile platforms at one time or another, but these days I focus on Android. When I'm not programming or writing, I enjoy reading, baking, cycling, and hiking around the San Francisco Bay Area.

Format: Paperback
Software engineer Chris King presents Advanced BlackBerry Development, an excellent guide to creating quality professional applications for the BlackBerry platform. Chapters cover the pros and cons of different applications and their functions, with an emphases on teaching the reader how to figure out what is most appropriate for which setting as well as the nuts and bolts of coding. Of particular interested are the chapters on ensuring security or encryption as needed, especially in today's world where electronic identity theft is more rampant than ever. Black-and-white illustrations, charts, and sections of sample code round out this superb "missing manual" highly recommended for advanced Blackberry users.

I thought this was the best so far of the BB books, there are some worthless sections but overall this is the best of the 3 BB development books so far. You could tell he actually ran through the examples.
I wish though their might be a followup with really , really hard or advanced development.
