The Windows 8 Launch Event
The Windows Phone 8 launch takes place later today. At 1 p.m. Eastern (10 a.m. Pacific), Microsoft will unveil the latest version of Windows Phone, whose SDK has been unavailable to most developers in a bid to “build up excitement”. You’ll be able to watch the stream of the event at the Windows Phone News Center, and TechHive, PC World, and Engadget will be live-blogging it.

iOS 5 By Tutorials Updated
The excellent ebook iOS 5 by Tutorials has been updated for Xcode 4.5 and iOS 6. Created by the team at the indispensable iOS developer site RayWenderlich.com, this book is for intermediate to advanced iOS developers who want to know about ARC, storyboards, iCloud, Game Center, Core Image, JSON parsing support, Twitter support, the APIs for the address book, location, calendar and more. It’s been updated to cover the new language features in Objective-C (which I talked about in an earlier article) as well as some new enhancements that came with iOS 6.
