    If you aim for the N8, and do not have prior Symbian C++ experience, you may want to start with Qt, since the N8 is the first device which comes with built-in support for it. It is Nokia's favorite technology, you can start with visiting its page via "Develop" above. There you will find getting started guides, documentation, examples, including games.
    Note that Qt has a different set of discussion boards, if you click back to Development Platforms above, you will find them listed after the Symbian C++ category.

    thanks much, qt looks very interesting.
    i am only a little bit confused about licencing. can free version be used for commercial work? or i need to buy it? and what about this: http://shop.qt.nokia.com/en/support.html ? it means it is fully GPL, but I can buy support? Or I need it if I will deciede for commercial use?

    Yes, those particular ones are licenses for different levels of paid technical support. Check the product licensing categories on http://qt.nokia.com/products/licensing - the LGPL/GPL licenses are enough for most individual developers. I guess you will not start doing modifications to Qt (it is open source) at the beginning, etc.
    And the FN Discussion Boards, Wiki, and other materials are free to use (nota bene: you are using them already), so you unlikely need any support license just for starting.

    unfortunately, if you want to make an game, you do need to posses some programming skills.

    I would suggest you QtQuick, it is easy and you do not need much efforts to learn. it is the part of Qt4.7 check the link for examples.

    Yes, that might be easier one. I would also suggets checking online tutorials. For example the samegame example shows nicely how javascript game can be made with QML.

    Re: making symbian game

    Hi,
    I was going through this thread. Actually I find gaming bit tough. even I tried to learn Java Script for WRT but could not get the syntex, Is there any way I could understand the Java script and make games?

    I have found Tutorials very good starting point, at least the ones that go explaining things in easy step-by-step manner. Though anything takes a while for learning, but luckily internet is full of good stuff to study from..

    If you have qt4.7 then check qmlviewer.exe in bin folder.

    to run your qml app your can use command like : promot;\> qmlviewer.exe "filepath\filename.qml"

    Qt Quick is basically QML + tools needed for QML.
