Mobidogs.com getting real time with Mike Hall
Posted on 2-Dec-2004 00:23 | Filed under: News



Mobidogs.com features a summary of a recent one hour interview with Mike Hall of Microsoft. Mike is a Technical Product Manager with the Mobile and Embedded Group in Redmond and he shares his views and some upcoming news about the mobile and embedded space.

"... the two most important things that he saw coming in the near future where Visual Studio 2005 and version 2.0 of the .NET Compact Framework. This next version of the development environment is important because it merges native and managed code development into one tool and into a single IDE, however, he finds the next release of the Compact Framework exciting because of the new functionality that it will provide developers."

"The introduction of DirectX Mobile is the next most significant thing for that [game developers] crowd. The game api (GAPI) has been the Windows Mobile game developer's tool of choice for a while, but Mike points out that GAPI-based code is not very portable. Windows CE 5.0 will have a new core technology called DirectX Mobile which will allow developers to create game code that will be portable across both the desktop and the mobile environments."
