Great SQLCE Resource

This book is a great overview for someone starting SQL Ce development. It is also a great reference book for those familiar with CE development. The book starts by going over some of the basics of SQL CE. Examples are easy to follow and a good foundation for starting development. I found the chapters on Remote Data Access and Merge Replication the most useful. Detailed setup and installation instruction on what is needed to use either of these technologies. Overall book was an easy read and the examples were very useful providing a great starting point to extend on.

Only for Programmers who can read Book Titles

I usually do not write reviews about technical books, however after buying this book at the book store and using it for several weeks on a real commercial project, I find this childish prattling more than I can stand. This book is about using and developing applications using SQL CE for the Compact Framework as the title says. So get over the fact that it does not cover something else or your particular section just how you would like it. This book is clear and well though out and delivers actually what it says it does. Frankly, I am lucky that I brought the book before I read these reviews, because I find them to be unwarranted at the very least.

A Perfect Book for SQLCE and NETCF

I am pretty new to the all of .NET, and this book was an amzing learning experience for the budding programmer in me.This book covered the subject very well and provided examples constantly, a very big plus is that all the examples are done in both C# and VB.NET (though the 2 languages arent that hard to convert to the other).Overall a really good book and one that belongs in your collection of Mobile Development books if you are serious about the NETCF and SQL CE.


Well, I had pretty high expectations on this book. I never did any PDA development before the Compact Framework, and I was browsing PDA books one day. I came across Rob's last book and bought it just because it was so interesting. Dan Fergus had told me about Rob's new book (and if you haven't bought Dan's new book, the Definitive Guide to the Compact Framework, but it with this one b/c they are both MUST haves) and I figured it'd be really cool.i was right. Why? Well, Rob is, if nothing else, informed and interesting. He makes you want to read more. he covers all of the normal Pitfalls and Gotcha's that you normally encounter with CE development (and yes, there are a few).His discussion on Security alone justifies buying this book. Everything else is icing on the cake. And very good icing it is.Of the few people that truly understand a complex subject, even fewer know how to teach others. Rob is unquestionably one of these individuals, and his book is a bargain at any price!Bill ...


A book that focuses on database programming using SQL Server CE. More importantly (and let me say "finally!"), this book uses Visual Studio .NET 2003 and the .NET Compact Framework instead of still using the stand alone Mobile Information Toolkit and the older Visual Studio .NET product. VS .NET 2003 makes developing applications soooo easy that a developer that has created a Windows form application can whip out a Pocket PC application in a matter of minutes. Building an application that is robust and corporate ready; however, requires a more robust database. It also makes the application a bit more complex. SQL Server CE is the database I choose for my applications. This book addresses all of the questions I've run into up to this point. Since answering questions is what I am using the book for, what more can I say!
