Description - Symbian OS Internals by Jane Sales

Take a look inside Symbian OS with an under-the-hood view of Symbian's revolutionary new real-time smart phone kernel. This book describes the functioning of the new real-time kernel, which will become ubiquitous on Symbian OS phones in the next 5-10 years. It will benefit the base-porting engineer by providing a more solid understanding of the OS being ported. It contains an in-depth explanation of how Symbian OS drivers work. Device drivers have changed considerably with the introduction of a single code - this book helps those converting them to the new kernel. The book has broad appeal and is relevant to all who work with Symbian OS at a low level, whatever Symbian OS they are targeting. This book is written by the engineers who actually designed and built the real-time kernel.

Since then, Jane has taken on variety of roles within Symbian, Including product management, systems architecture and setting up a small product -focused research group in Japan. Jane Studied at Jesus college, Oxford, where she gained an NA in mathematics in 1982. After that, she became part of a small team building a microcomputer to which they ported CCPIM, It was he start of a long-lasting love of systems programming. In 2003, Jane Moved to the South of France and Began work on this book She would like to thank her husband, Roger, for his moral and financial support over the Succeeding 18 months. Corinne Dive-Reclus Corinne joined Symbian in 2001 after several years at Baltimore Ltd, where she designed the embedded software of ACCE ( Advanced Configurable Crypto Environment), a cryptographic hardware module certified FIPS 140-1 Level 4. In 1987, her first job was as a presales engineer at Sun Microsystems France where she was exposed to the concept of Network Computing & Internet and to its very first remote attacks - at a time when this was still confidential. Being more interested in development than presales, she subsequently worked as a software engineer for Concepts and Implicit, developing an RAD )Rapid Application Development) Programming Language for the creation of distributed data-oriented applications. Since joining Symbian, Corinne has been the Platform Security System Architect, and has worked on the platform security architecture from its initial design to its implementation in Symbain V9. To ensure that all layers of the operating system will contribute to its overall security, she worked extensively with Andrew Thoelke and Dennis May to validate the security features of EKA2, design new services such as Publish & Subscribe and Capability Model, as well as defining the new behavior of the file server, known as Data Caging. For this work, Corinne received the Symbian Technical Innovation award in 2003.
