+ - Ask Slashdot: Where can I obtain resources to program for Palm OS 5?

baka_toroi (1194359) writes "I got a Tungsten E2 from a friend and I wanted to give it some life by programming for it a little bit. The main problem I'm bumping with is that HP thought it would be awesome to just shut down every single thing related to Palm OS development. After googling a lot I found out CodeWarrior was the de facto IDE for Palm OS development... but I was soon disappointed as I learned that Palm moved from the 68K architecture to ARM, and of course, CodeWarrior was just focused on Palm OS 4 development.

Now, I realize Palm OS 4 software can be run on Palm OS 5, but I'm looking to use some of the "newer" APIs. Also, I have the Wi-fi add-on card so I wanted to create something that uses it. I thought what I needed was PODS (Palm OS Development Suite) but not only I can't find it anywhere but also it seems it was deprecated during Palm OS's lifetime. It really doesn't help the fact that I'm a beginner, but I really want to give this platform some life.
Any general tip, book, working link or even anecdotes related to all this will be greatly appreciated."

Hi. When I Googled for "ironspread", Google came back with "DataNitro". Apparently, the company changed their name to DataNitro at some point in 2012.

I looked at the DataNitro website and the tool looks interesting. Thanks for mentioning this.

(I have no mod points currently, or I would mod your post up)

Hi.

I think you meant Talend, right?

I have used the ETL functions of both Pentaho and Talend, as well as Informatica (and MS SSIS a smidgen). Right now, I am using Talend Open Studio for several production integration worfklows. It works well. The only issue I have with it is that you need to know some Java syntax, at least, to create calculations and expressions. Since I am not very fluent in Java, that makes Talend a little tougher for me to use.

The BIRT suite has always sounded impressive. If I become better skilled at Java in the future, I will certainly check it out.

I have never used Jaspersoft, so I cannot comment on it.

Another option for retro-gaming hardware is Andre LaMothe's XGameStation line of DIY kits.

Looks like they now have a "Chameleon" line of kits, in both 8- and 16-bit flavors, which are similar to Arduino or BASIC Stamp systems.

I have not personally used these, but they appear to be pretty cool.

Enjoy.

At http://www.vh1classic.com/browse/video/17278/featured-playlists/index.jhtml, you can play lots of videos.

These have been available on the VH1 Classic site for quite some time now, I believe.

Since MTV and VH1/VH1 Classic share the same corporate parent, maybe they've just now added the VH1 Classic video content to MTV's site.

Numeric stability is probably not all that important when you're guessing.
