Nokia has partnered with Integrated Computer Solutions (ICS) to provide a 2 day Free Qt hands on training to teach programmers ‘how to use Qt to develop mobile applications for Symbian^3’. Many of you might already know that Nokia has a new line of mobile phones (N8, E7, C6-01, C7) that is running on their new Symbian^3 OS. The link encourages attendees to have prior experience in developing applications for mobile devices and be proficient in C++, prior experience with Qt is not necessary. Developers can download the Qt SDK for free. Another interesting fact is that ‘Attendees will learn how to create mobile applications with Qt by using an actual Nokia N8 or other Symbian^3 device.’ This will be an excellent opportunity for a developer to see how apps run on the new mobile platform and see the phones in person.
I have added the link to the regional (North American) Qt training schedule and on the bottom of the page where you can register by simply clicking on the ‘Register Today’ button. NokiaInnovation has learned that due to unforeseen circumstances the NYC Qt training that was scheduled for next week has been canceled.
Another reminder is that registered attendee must bring their own PC/Mac laptop and must have installed the following programs:
OS: Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7.
Nokia Qt SDK 1.0.1 with all updates (must be updated from the SDK)
Nokia OVI Suite. (must be updated from the software, it contains the necessary drivers). http://bit.ly/4DcRBZ
Qt 4.7 SDK release candidate (for running QML)
Qt SDK for Mac OS will work fine for creating a S^ 3 application.
Qt SDK Apple Mac version is beta and needs remote compiler to create .sis packages.
