The new Palm webOS running on the upcoming Palm Pre is impressive and everyone hopes that it will live up to its promises.
Today Palm started attracting developers to code Apps for webOS to fill the phone with useful applications and games and of course Fart simulators.

O'Reilly Media and Palm today announced that they're collaborating to create the first official resource for programming the new webOS platform.
Written by Palm Vice President and Software Chief Technology Officer Mitch Allen and members of the webOS development team, "Palm webOS: Developing Applications in JavaScript Using the Palm Mojo Framework" is being edited and distributed by O'Reilly Media, a leading publisher of technology resources.
"Palm webOS is unlike any mobile platform available today," said Mitch Allen, vice president and software chief technology officer, Palm, Inc. "Because it leverages several industry-standard web technologies, including CSS, HTML and JavaScript, it enables them to build native JavaScript applications and provides a rich open development environment that's familiar to tens of millions of web developers. I'm excited to be working with O'Reilly to show the developer community just how easy and satisfying it is to develop applications for webOS."

Palm already had a huge developer following for the Palm OS. The company knows how important it is to support and have a vibrant developer community.
The first chapter of the Rough Cuts Version of the book is currently available online for free from the Palm Developer Network site.
