The MyExperience tool is open source software under the BSD license and is hosted on
hosting the MyExperience source code, SourceForge also provides a variety of project
organization features such as
feature request forms
We encourage you to utilize these forums to provide feedback to us.
The MyExperience source code is hosted via the Subversion
(SVN) code repository on SourceForge. I strongly recommend using
if you're using Windows as a front-end client to SVN.
This project's SourceForge.net Subversion repository can be checked out through SVN with the following command:
svn co https://myexperience.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/myexperience/Trunk myexperience
Note that as of February 29th, 2008, the Trunk itself is 186.12 megabytes. This is because the Trunk contains documentation, images,
mockups, and the website in addition to the source code. If you would like to check out only
the source code, you can do
so with this command:
svn co https://myexperience.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/myexperience/Trunk/Source myexperience
Finally, if you would like to check out the entire MyExperience source tree (including branches), use this URL instead:
svn co https://myexperience.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/myexperience/ myexperience
third party code
MyExperience relies on code / resources from the following projects:
Roam provides an extensive set of user interface widgets, collection classes, and
device related utility functions (e.g., idle state notifications) not currently found in the .NET Compact Framework.
Smart Device Framework 2.1 Community Edition
OpenNETCF's Smart Device Framework 2.1 improves the development experience for Smart Device
developers using the Microsoft .NET Compact Framework. Functionality from previous versions
of the Smart Device Framework has often been implemented into the actual .NET CF library.
log4net is a tool to help the programmer output log statements to a variety of output targets.
log4net is a port of the excellent log4j framework to the .NET runtime.
The framework is similar in spirit to the original log4j but takes advantage of
new features in the .NET runtime.
32feet.NET is a shared-source project to make personal area networking technologies such as
Bluetooth, Infrared (IrDA) and more, easily accessible from .NET code. It supports desktop,
mobile or embedded systems.
Intel POLS is a Privacy-Observant Location System that provides an easy to use, on-device
localization solution for mobile application developers. The goal of POLS is to lower
the barrier of entry for location-based applications on mobile devices.
