One of the best features of Windows Embedded operating systems is that they use the same API (Win32/MFC/.NET), the same languages (C++, Visual Basic, .NET, and C#) and even the same tools (Visual Studio) as the desktop. These similarities make it simple for desktop Windows-based developers to move to Windows Embedded. But if you try coding an embedded system the way you code on the desktop, you'll end up producing a brick! This session teaches you the strategies and techniques needed to leverage your desktop skills to develop great applications for Windows Embedded operating systems. Come learn how to "cross over to embedded" in this informative talk.
