by Curtis Lee Fulton

UBM Tech, the publisher of venerable programmer’s journal Dr. Dobbs, says its going with the new Windows mobile app written by loyal reader Mr. Abdalla Massani. Dr. Dobb’s editor in chief Andrew Binstock said “Abdalla designed and implemented the app entirely by himself and shepherded it through the Microsoft approval process. He plans to add new features in the future and expects to post the source code as soon as he has it fully commented the way he wants.”

The new app offers readers a way to customize menu topics based on their interests.

UBM Tech says Massani plans to publish the app’s source code on GitHub.

Massani, a senior engineer and architect at MedAvail Technologies in Mississauga, Canada. has been programming in C# for 12 years.
