From Intro to the Article

PhoneGap is an open source framework that allows the building of applications across major mobile platforms using languages you are already familiar and comfortable with, like HTML5, JavaScript, and CSS. It can be compiled using platform-native tools. The JavaScript API is defined to facilitate access to device features for supported platforms.
To familiarize myself with PhoneGap functionality, I decided to start small by building a simple application for an iPhone. Before diving into development of the application, please make sure that the following software tools are installed on your development machine.

WCF: From a Beginner's perspective & a Tutorial - CodeProject

Architecture of WPF

 From the Intro to the article:

Well, WCF stands for Windows Communication Foundation, it was first shipped with .NET 3.0 framework along with WPF, Windows CardSpace and WorkFlow Foundation.
From a beginner's perspective, what does actually WCF mean? Let's break the abbreviation into single entities and try to debug. It consists of 3 words, a)Windows b)Communication c)Foundation.
A beginner would glance at the words and would think, well it is something which deals with Windows platform, which is used to communicate and connect applications. Hmm, well he/she ain't wrong on the first strike...
A definition which comes to mind may be summed up as: WCF is a kind of technology, which is used to develop and deploy services on Windows platform. Different books have different set of words to describe WCF, but the gist is almost the same which points to development and deployment of services on Windows Platform.
MSDN says, WCF is a framework to build service-oriented applications. So basically WCF revolves around developing applications which are greatly dependent upon services.

Face Detection with 10 lines of code - VB.NET - CodeProject

 introduction to article

 Finding faces in an image can be quite a challenging issue. There are some commercial and Open Source frameworks available to developers in order to make the task of finding faces easier. A commercially available library that I can recommend is Neurotechnology VeryLook. Probably the most famous Open Source framework for face detection is Intel's OpenCV (Open Computer Vision) which is capable of a whole lot more than just detecting faces. As it is based on the C++ programming language it is not easy to use in .NET environment. EmguCV solves this issue by providing a .NET interface to OpenCV functions. While these frameworks are powerful, they are not so easy to use.

Writing an Android GUI using C++: Introduction - CodeProject

Intro

The article is an introduction to write Android GUI applications using CLE and Wrapandroid. CLE is a middleware for programming using multiple languages, which supports Java, Python, C/C++, Lua, etc., and can be extended to support other languages. Objects, for example, instances of classes, will be maintained in the kernel. And then, CLE provides a common interface to multiple languages. We can call an object’s function, get or set object’s attributes, capture object’s events, etc.
