MCObjects Offers Perst for Windows Phone 7
Posted by Jon Westfall in "Windows Phone Developer" @ 07:30 AM
"In a classic example of the market driving the direction of a software product, McObject® announced it is offering support for its PerstTM object-oriented, open source embedded database on Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 (WP7) smartphone platform, after Windows mobile software experts in the UK ported Perst (along with McObject's related Silverlight demo) to WP7, and a Microsoft executive guiding WP7 developer relations described the port as "epic.""
I don't know how classic of an example of market driving the direction of a software product this is, but it is kinda interesting and does mean that developers should have a low-cost database solution for developing apps. And how can you go wrong with something described as "epic"?
