The Old WIP Connector Site

So – what happened to the resources we had on the old WIP Connector site? Good question! We used the Steve Jobs approach on this new site – start with a blank piece of paper and add back the most important bits. Our old site was, well, old – a mix of databases and information sources we gathered over 7 years when we started the first mobile developer portal (remember what a portal was). Well times have changed, and new sites have cropped up. We are still contemplating Version 2 of this site, deciding what we should include that would be most valuable to you.

Help us out.
Got an idea of what we should include?
Missing something from the old site – App Store Catalog, API Catalog, Developer Program and tools listings, regional hubs?
Let us know.
Thanks.

Mobile Developer’s Guide to the Galaxy

The Developer’s Guide to the Galaxy is a great little book on navigating the basics of mobile development put together in conjunction with our friends over at Enough Software. Over the past few years, it has swelled to more than 200 pages covering a wide variety of topics and platforms.

It’s well worth having a copy around as a reference guide, particularly to give you an overview of new platforms you haven’t used before, and to give you an idea of what they require and how their development environments and technologies differ.

And remember the point of the whole thing — Don’t Panic!
