Very great book. I would suggest it to anyone with a minimum software developer background. It could be a little bit hard for new developer

Excellent book for all developers. Does not even make sense to develop for iOS after reading this book! It makes developing for BlackBerry so simple!

I've never before seen a book that so quickly demystified a programming topic as this on does. If you have held off developing native/Cascades BB10 apps because you felt overwhelmed by learning Qt, wait longer!

You can honestly begin cranking out a good app after a few hours of reading this book. There are many niches left to be filled in BlackBerry World and this book has allowed me to start doing so!

More About the Author

Welcome to my personal author's page! I am a freelance software engineer located in Geneva, Switzerland. I studied Electrical Engineering at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL). After having fried a chip too many, I decided to switch to software engineering and never looked back.

I have also spent a decade in IT in the financial services sector where I tried to figure out the meaning of life amongst men in gray suits. I started my "IT career" during the good old days of the Internet craze in 1998-99. Back then developers were paid a fortune for building ugly web apps. Over the years I took part in different IT projects and assumed the following tasks:

- Launched an unsuccessful startup in Switzerland, somewhere where VCs and banks only invest in startups once they are successful.

- Wrote Eclipse plugins and developer tools to accelerate JEE development (back then it was called J2EE and developing an Enterprise App was a painful experience akin to building a pyramid for the Pharos)

- Worked over a period of 5 years on a mammoth IT project for replacing a legacy banking system

- Implemented integration components and service-oriented architectures using web services

- Integrated access rights and identity management solutions within IT infrastructures

- Wore a tie so that I would not be reprimanded by the Chief Information Officer when I bumped into him in the elevator, the restrooms and the cafeteria

Some of my current interests include:

- Monte Carlo methods for computational finance

- High performance C++

- Derivatives pricing using multicore processors and GPUs

- Building decent cross-platform toolings for the F# functional programming language (see project FSharpener at http://aludin.com)

- Mobile application design (iOS, Android & BlackBerry 10)

I also thoroughly enjoy sharing my knowledge about technical topics that I find particularly cool. I've therefore written a book about BlackBerry 10 Cascades programming, which is published by Apress. One of my next projects is to write about Information Technology inefficiencies, which I will initially publish as blog posts.
