    Talking Webinar - Qt for S60

    Repeating myself to ensure that everyone here noticec this

    Hello everyone,
    as already announced Nokia is porting Qt to S60 and the first release was already published in October.

    On 17.12 there will be a *webinar* about the next Qt for S60 releases including tools and services that will be offered for you to develop your S60 applications with Qt. The webinar details including registration instructions will be in http://www.forum.nokia.com/Events/Webinars.xhtml

    You can register to the webinar from the following links:

    Wednesday December 17th, 2008
    Session 1 : 09:00 AM Helsinki, 15:00 PM Beijing, 16:00 PM Tokyo
    Register: http://forumnokia.emea.acrobat.com/e...istration.html

    Session 2 : 11:00 AM New York, 16:00 PM London, 18:00 PM Helsinki
    Register: http://forumnokia.emea.acrobat.com/e...istration.html

    The webinar will cover Qt overview, details about the Qt for S60 port and what tools will be offered and hands-on demonstration about developing your first Qt application for S60.

    We're hoping for you to be very active on commenting your findings about the Qt port and development environment on this discussion forum!

    Stay tuned!

    Cheers,
    Jack

    Re: Webinar - Qt for S60

    Hi,

    Got email reminder about the websinar, with a link to here to ask questions in advance. Here you are, just in case I miss the live webinar:

    1) Please tell everything about licensing If I have undertood correctly, Qt has currently two licenses: a) one for open source non-commercial projects, which require releasing full source code for free? No Qt license fees in this case?

    b) Another one for commercial projects, where source code can be kept confidential, with quite a big-corporate-sized license fee? I saw 3500 EUR quoted in one blog?

    So how will it be for S60, is there any sense thinking about doing small apps or not? Games and utilities, either in AppStorish "0.99 USD" or "5 Pound" apps categories? Or even freeware without releasing source code?

    I've been thinking that maybe Carbide.c++ was made available for free partly because of expected (similar size) Qt license fees

    2) Qt already runs on maemo, does it? Now you're planning for S60? Howabout S40? Windows Mobile? BREW? iPhone? Android? LiMo? What kind of multi-platform support can you promise for the (near) future?

    3) Tell about tools, will all Carbide.c++ tools work as expected? Debugging on emulator and hw, profiling, static source code analysis? Code coverage, class browser, graphical UI design tools?

    Cheers,

    --jouni

    Re: Webinar - Qt for S60

    Jack, the links to the webinar registrations don't seem to work for, they include the "..." in the URL. The Qt webinars are still not on on the overview page at Forum Nokia, so I'm not sure if there's currently a way to sign up except through the links that were sent in the newsletter.

    I hope it's fine if I post the correct links here:
    Session 1 :
    09:00 AM Helsinki, 15:00 PM Beijing, 16:00 PM Tokyo
    http://forumnokia.emea.acrobat.com/e...istration.html (-> http://forumnokia.emea.acrobat.com/e41263420/event/registration.html )

    Session 2 :
    11:00 AM New York, 16:00 PM London, 18:00 PM Helsinki
    http://forumnokia.emea.acrobat.com/e...istration.html (-> http://forumnokia.emea.acrobat.com/e78439001/event/registration.html )

    Re: Webinar - Qt for S60

    Hi Andreas, thanks for fixing the links, don't know what went wrong...

    Regarding the questions:

    1) Please tell everything about licensing

    We will, S60 licensing is open still though.

    2) Qt already runs on maemo, does it? Now you're planning for S60? Howabout S40? Windows Mobile? BREW? iPhone? Android? LiMo? What kind of multi-platform support can you promise for the (near) future?

    yes, in maemo there's community port done as open source by Forum Nokia and external developers:
    http://www.gnuton.org/blog/2008/07/q...ew-experience/

    3) Tell about tools, will all Carbide.c++ tools work as expected? Debugging on emulator and hw, profiling, static source code analysis? Code coverage, class browser, graphical UI design tools?

    Carbide work as expected? I hope not but better!

    Cheers,
    Jack

    There's also official maemo support on the way. Windows Mobile is already officially supported by Qt. BREW seems very unlikely (although not impossible). iPhone is technically doable (with a MacOS X port already available) but I think there are legal issues and not that many devices yet. Android and LiMo are running Linux so very possible, but Android is still Java only for devs and there isn't a proper SDK for LiMo yet last time I checked, nor any real commitment for the phones to be open.

    I kind of half expect Android and LiMo to merge at some future point, and for the resulting platform to be open to native apps and a Qt port to appear very quickly after that.
