2009 Yahoo -- Taiwan Hack Day
The application which bagged the prize
Golden Award: “Location Plus” by Happy Summer. A location-aware Java app which used many Yahoo! APIs to return a "hot topics" on places in Taiwan.
We can come up with a different idea as we already have knowledge in location based application development.

Do u guys remember..in that silicon india conference they emphasized heavily on payment methods on mobile for services offered...read this article ..it gives you how big this mobile money
transfer market is..
According to a new report from Juniper Research the international mobile money transfer market will be worth in excess of US$65 billion by 2014, based on gross transaction values - driven principally from migrant workers based in developed countries.
Juniper's new report however also identified a number of inhibiting factors such as rising global unemployment and increased immigration controls by governments which will hold back the market until the recession is over.
Howard Wilcox, Senior Analyst, commented: "Our view is very clear - in the long term this market proposition is highly attractive. Mobile remittance offers a speedy, cost effective and convenient channel for people to send money regularly to friends and family at home, who themselves may not have bank accounts".
The mobile money transfer report also revealed a new emerging sector for microcredits, saving accounts and insurance payments. Known as "sophisticated financial services" these services are entirely focused on developing countries where users do not have access to traditional banking or financial services or simply use alternative means of payment traditionally such as physically transporting cash, or storing cash savings at home. The report found that is new market for financial services on the mobile, can add to the attractiveness of mobile money services, and help to reduce mobile operator churn.
Further findings include:
· North America and Western Europe will be the main remittance sending regions in 2014
· Typically international transfers are conducted by a smaller base of users than national or domestic transfers, but transaction values are higher, payments are more regular and less frequent.
I have been working on Windows CE Platforms for quite sometime and there are some
1) Interesting techniques for Dynamically loading and unloading a library.
2) Executable formats used.
Just wondering how things are done on other OS Platforms esp. Symbian..,
Although the Concepts will be similar... I am aiming to Understand the differences,if any in
I am preparing an article on things that i know in this area ... will post it within this weekend ... lets up everything that we know in this topic...

This is my first post in this forum and i m posting this on compulsion from the moderator.. actually i m very bizzzzyyyy u c!!! :)
so this is jus an intro post and more will follow (hopefully soon!)..
i m playing with latest microsoft technologies..
(latest as of today.. but they may be outdated tomorrow.. these guys are crazy!)
to list a few:
Silverlight- a web application framework from MS to compete with adobe flash.. its really rich and can be developed with programming languages like c#, vb.net.. There are n frameworks like Prism, CAB, Caliburn, Unity, etc and m patterns like MVVM, Factory, etc that i am using now and will discuss them in detail...
Entity Framework- Finally an ORM tool from the giant which makes developers forget about the database & related stuffs.. really handy and nowadays i m searching google for writing simple queries in SQL.. thanks to Entity Framework..
WCF- is an application programming interface for building service oriented applications.
SSIS- SQL integration services is my fav topic and it has come a long way from DTS days..
Hope you guys will encourage me and help me in this new stint..
At the end of the movie you feel you were touched by your old memories of your love. I firmly believe that almost 90% of male or female were losers in their first love which is an unacceptable truth. It would have happened either proposed ones or it can be unsaid love which was felt and lost within themselves:).
Okay, lets go into this movie story. I may not be a good narrator, but some of my friends said once that i had naratted story in a such a way that made them to watch it.
In a high school, Jamie & Landon were in same class. Both of them were stuyding in the same school from childhood. But they never hardly interacted except Landon making fun on Jamie for few times on her outer appearances.
In many of the romantic- adult comedy hollywood movies, girls were portrayed as so modern that they were ready for sex during school time. But in this movie, the girl was portrayed as very traditional and loving daughter for a good father. Jamie's mother had died when she was a baby. Jamie always keeps her face smiling, a wonderful smile, you will go pleasant on seeing her smile. If that smile was with you ohh god, then i would say u are luckyyyy.... U r gonna have good sleep that day..!!!
But somehow landon is not attracted to her or he doesnt take her smile or her good behaviours so much becoz of her outer appearance. Jamie doesnt wear modren dress uor her outerlook doesnt portray her as modern outlooking girl. She always wears a 4,5 decades old sweater and a pant. Landon was a kinnda off wayward teen with his own gang who all doesnt mingle with Jamie.
Jamie is also a singer in church. Her voice is so sweet that she had many fans on sunday to listen her sweet voice. Now both of them came to last year of high school.
To say about landon's family, her mother was divorced and he & his mother were living alone, with his father sending money every month to them. His father is a cardiologist.Lets see how they cross each others in theirs life.
Jamie's dressings is very simple,always she wears a big skirt with a old sweater on it. When the movie starts , landon and his friends were trying to do some prank activities, and its becoz of landon one of his friend takes a challenge and jumps from a 100 feet high swimming board into a pond.Unfortunately his friend was hurt seriously and put in a hospital. Landon regrets for that and school administration has put him rehab kinda off activity to do social community services. Like, every week end he needs to tutor his juniors in maths, & take up a lead role in schools spring play that year. Landon take it seriously and tries to some useful activity as he felt bad for his friend.But he has never done acting in school or in drama, he finds it difficult to do. Interestingly Jamie was also supposed to do lead role in that years spring play.
Dont know how to proceed, landon hesitantly ask jamie to help him for his act in that play.But his father was more reluctant to accept this help. He doesnt like his daughter to be in more close friendship with a boy. But then jamie says she is now grown old and nothing she will break her promise to his father.
Before jamie accepts to help she says to landon " I can help you only with the agreement that you should never fall in love with me ".. Landon takes a big laugh and say he will never ever be...
They both now started rehearsing for the play.Jamie explaining how to deliver a dialogue, be enacted with the play, dressings and everything.
Due to this daily evening rehearsal Landon couldnt spend his usual time with his friends. And one day in school, when landon was with this friends gang, jamie comes to landon & tells her ' when can we meet in the evening, as today i have prayer church at 4'. To disguise from friends he replies in such a way that landon knows nothing about it .. ' It can happen only in your dream'. Jamie feels insulted and runs away..
later that evening landon goes to jamies home for apology.But then jamie refuses to let him in and says ' i thought you had some good in you but my faith was broken'.
Landon was helpless and goes away with frustration. Landon slowly develops strong feelings for her and likes being with her. He started getting help from his mom to act in the play and when the final day comes for springs play,both Landon & Jamie were dressed up so elegantly and appeared for the play.
Landon was speechless on seeing Jamie in angels dress...!!!! He was completely broken into pieces. THe play was supposed to end with jamie singing a song and she dies for him. Jamie too sang a song beautifully as she was a regular singer. Once the song was completed jamie comes near landon sitting in a chair, but then landon gives a smooch, which jamie couldnt refuse at stage and everyone was so exited to see a live play and appreciated landon for the play. Tremendous change in landon.
But jamie's father doesnt liked it.

check abt this on its official site. http://www.codersatwork.com/
Planning to get one ,from any of my US return Frenz...
But a soft copy helping me out now :)
Though discouraged by my many of my Frenz words( Why not simple RoR? Why not MS' WCF) decided to explore on this mission providing Restful service using Java Web framework/containers (as it aligns with my work @ my office :) )
Starting up today ,with my first question - Osgi(Spring DM Server) vs non Osgi frameworks?
Shall post my learnings in this assignment from now on....
But Still I do use few hints from this during my leisure code play (not great but just like that for fun)

Wireless Telephony Applications Interface (WTAI) public library - S60 browser - few examples.for calling, saving to contacts..
Making a phone call The MakeCall function is used to make a phone call directly from an XHTML page. A typical example of the usage of MakeCall is when the user selects that initiates a phone call. In XHTML, the MakeCall function is defined following string:
Call 123456 789
When a MakeCall function is executed, the user is asked to confirm that the dial-up is to be made. If the phone number about to be called does not exist in the phone book, a confirmation query with the phone number is displayed. If the number exists in the phone book, a confirmation query is displayed with the name fetched from the phone book.
Sending a DTMF tone The user can send DTMF tones through the network by executing a WTAI function called SendDTMF. Just like MakeCall, a typical way of using SendDTMF is to assign the SendDTMF function to a link. The user must have a voice call active. When the DTMF tone has been sent, the user returns to the active page where s/he initiated the sending. The voice call remains active.
Adding a phone book entry The AddPBEntry function offers an easy way to store a phone number and corresponding name onto the phone book application from an XHTML page. In XHTML, the AddPBEntry function is defined with the following string:
When the user activates an AddPBEntry function and the content author has declared a name and number, the device displays a confirmation query with the text "Save name?" When the user accepts the confirmation query, another confirmation query with the text "With number +123456789" is displayed and the number is stored in the phone book application. When saving is complete, the currently active page is displayed again. The user does not have to be online or have any voice calls active in order to use the AddPBEntry function.
* Get interested in programming, and do some because it is fun. Make sure that it keeps being enough fun so that you will be willing to put in ten years.
* Talk to other programmers; read other programs. This is more important than any book or training course.
* Program. The best kind of learning is learning by doing. To put it more technically, "the maximal level of performance for individuals in a given domain is not attained automatically as a function of extended experience, but the level of performance can be increased even by highly experienced individuals as a result of deliberate efforts to improve." (p. 366) and "the most effective learning requires a well-defined task with an appropriate difficulty level for the particular individual, informative feedback, and opportunities for repetition and corrections of errors." (p. 20-21) The book Cognition in Practice: Mind, Mathematics, and Culture in Everyday Life is an interesting reference for this viewpoint.
* If you want, put in four years at a college (or more at a graduate school). This will give you access to some jobs that require credentials, and it will give you a deeper understanding of the field, but if you don't enjoy school, you can (with some dedication) get similar experience on the job. In any case, book learning alone won't be enough. "Computer science education cannot make anybody an expert programmer any more than studying brushes and pigment can make somebody an expert painter" says Eric Raymond, author of The New Hacker's Dictionary. One of the best programmers I ever hired had only a High School degree; he's produced a lot of great software, has his own news group, and made enough in stock options to buy his own nightclub.
* Work on projects with other programmers. Be the best programmer on some projects; be the worst on some others. When you're the best, you get to test your abilities to lead a project, and to inspire others with your vision. When you're the worst, you learn what the masters do, and you learn what they don't like to do (because they make you do it for them).
* Work on projects after other programmers. Be involved in understanding a program written by someone else. See what it takes to understand and fix it when the original programmers are not around. Think about how to design your programs to make it easier for those who will maintain it after you.
* Learn at least a half dozen programming languages. Include one language that supports class abstractions (like Java or C++), one that supports functional abstraction (like Lisp or ML), one that supports syntactic abstraction (like Lisp), one that supports declarative specifications (like Prolog or C++ templates), one that supports coroutines (like Icon or Scheme), and one that supports parallelism (like Sisal).
* Remember that there is a "computer" in "computer science". Know how long it takes your computer to execute an instruction, fetch a word from memory (with and without a cache miss), read consecutive words from disk, and seek to a new location on disk. (Answers here.)
* Get involved in a language standardization effort. It could be the ANSI C++ committee, or it could be deciding if your local coding style will have 2 or 4 space indentation levels. Either way, you learn about what other people like in a language, how deeply they feel so, and perhaps even a little about why they feel so.
* Have the good sense to get off the language standardization effort as quickly as possible.
With all that in mind, its questionable how far you can get just by book learning. Before my first child was born, I read all the How To books, and still felt like a clueless novice. 30 Months later, when my second child was due, did I go back to the books for a refresher? No. Instead, I relied on my personal experience, which turned out to be far more useful and reassuring to me than the thousands of pages written by experts.
"Everyone can be taught to sculpt: Michelangelo would have had to be taught how not to. So it is with the great programmers".
So go ahead and buy that Java book; you'll probably get some use out of it. But you won't change your life, or your real overall expertise as a programmer in 24 hours, days, or even months.

Have you ever noticed __cdecl and __stdcall in your code.
The major difference between them is
1) In __cdecl , the Calling function pops the arguments from the stack.So functions declared
using __cdecl can support varargs as the called function knows how many arguments it needs to pass(push to stack) and how many arguments it needs to pop from the stack .Assume funcA,funcB,funC call "funcZ" ,then each of the functions that call funcZ should have the code to pop the stack .So the code size becomes more here.
2) In __stdcall ,the Called function pops its own arguments from the stack.
Argument-passing order --> Right to left
Stack-maintenance responsibility --> Calling function pops the arguments from the stack Name-decoration convention --> Underscore character (_) is prefixed to names
Case-translation convention --> No case translation performed
Argument-passing order --> Right to left.
Argument-passing convention --> By value, unless a pointer or reference type is passed.
Stack-maintenance responsibility --> Called function pops its own arguments from the stack.
Name-decoration convention --> An underscore (_) is prefixed to the name. The name is followed by the at sign (@) followed by the number of bytes (in decimal) in the argument list. Therefore, the function declared as int func( int a, double b ) is decorated as follows:
will update with a small example for the above in next blog.
Nokia's Maemo-based future has begun: the N900 is shipping. According to Nokia CEO, Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo, the eagerly awaited handset is now en route to at least some pre-order customers. We'll soon see if this new generation of Nokia smartphones will be enough to generate the type of mass-market / high-margin appeal that Nokia needs at the top end of its product portfolio or if it's just a tentative first step on a potentially wobbly new platform.
Update: Nokia's official blog says to expect the Maemo 5 device to land in "Europe, the Middle-East, Russia and North America" shortly. However, it won't be compatible with the new 3G SIM cards from 3 in the UK, Ireland, Sweden, Denmark and Austria until a software update hits sometime later this year.
Good to b a part of this group. All of us here are "Potential Contributors".
But to make this really work..we need "Consistent contributions"...I wish to see
atleast one post a day in this group...Even when there is very little activity in the group...let's keep blogging or give comments...
"we never know when the magic strikes"...Let's Make this Work... :-)
"The sign of life is strength and growth. The sign of death is weakness. Whatever is weak, avoid! It is death. If it is strength, go down into hell and get hold of it! There is salvation only for the brave. "None but the brave deserves the fair." None but the bravest deserves salvation."
"Do not hate anybody, because that hatred which comes out from you must, in the long run, come back to you. If you love, that love will come back to you, completing the circle."
"Even the greatest fool can accomplish a task if it were after his or her heart. But the intelligent ones are those who can convert every work into one that suits their taste."
"If superstition enters, the brain is gone."
"If you want to have life, you have to die every moment for it. Life and death are only different expressions of the same thing looked at from different standpoints; they are the falling and the rising of the same wave, and the two form one whole."
"Live for an ideal, and that one ideal alone. Let it be so great, so strong, that there may be nothing else left in the mind; no place for anything else, no time for anything else."
"Put God behind everything—people, animals, food, work. Make this a habit."
"Stand up, be bold, and take the blame on your own shoulders. Do not go about throwing mud at others; for all the faults you suffer from, you are the sole and only cause."
"Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life—think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success, and this is the way great spiritual giants are produced. Others are mere talking machines."
"Tell the truth boldly, whether it hurts or not. Never pander to weakness. If truth is too much for intelligent people and sweeps them away, let them go; the sooner the better."
"The great secret of true success, of true happiness, is this: the man or woman who asks for no return, the perfectly unselfish person, is the most successful."
"The moment you fear, you are nobody. It is fear that is the great cause of misery in the world. It is fear that is the greatest of all superstitions. It is the fear that is the cause of our woes, and it is fearlessness that brings heaven in a moment."
"We must have friendship for all; we must be merciful toward those that are in misery; when people are happy, we ought to be happy; and to the wicked we must be indifferent. These attitudes will make the mind peaceful."
With expertise on our current doings , we do have great passion to learn things & apply those to our applications.Thereby wished to acknowledge our efforts(ourselves :) ) and share among others. Wishing to be recognisable figures among developer community.
Thats all about our Collective Force now.
This is just our start on Blogger to do share few of our learnings and developed applications/scripts .
Two guyz from mobile application/system development domain.
One guy with dirted hands in Microsoft's product development technologies .(currently with silverlight).
One from Embedded domain and another blessed(??) with mediocrity and desire to emerge in par with these folks.
We assure you that we start now to make a positive note among developer community with our few contributions now on.
