Symbian Qt Quick Components Competition 2012Q1

From Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

We're having a competition to encourage developers to share their experiences of migrating to the new Symbian (Belle) platform style using the Symbian Qt Quick Components.

In order to compete you need to have a "real" application that uses Symbian Qt Quick Components to provide the application framework and standard controls, and which does so in a way that is consistent with the Symbian Design Guidelines.

We then need an article which describes your experience of using or migrating to the Symbian Qt Quick Components. This article might include:

  • how you used the components
  • where did the components make things easier or harder, and why
  • any cases where you needed to roll out your own behaviour, and why
  • advice and guidance for other users - for example how to implement branding while still meeting the guidelines
  • your suggestions for improving particular components

The three winners will get their choice of the following devices: Nokia C7-00, Nokia 700, or Nokia 701. If that's not enough, then consider that as winner of a Nokia Developer competition your app will be featured in our Community, Wiki, and Project home pages, as well as in our developer newsletters - giving your app immediate visibility with hundreds of thousands of your peers and potential employers!

The Symbian Qt Quick Components are available in the Qt SDK v1.1.4. Read the Read the Symbian Design Guidelines and off you go!


How to participate

Write an article on the wiki about your experience of using the Qt Quick Components. Provide a link to the real application so we can try it out and see how well it matches the Symbian Style Guidelines.

Here are the competition rules:

  • The application and associated article must be original work. A link must be provided to the application (on Nokia Store or elsewhere).
  • The article must have the category Category:Qt Quick and include the text: This is an entry in the [[Symbian Qt Quick Components Competition 2012Q1]]
  • The article must be submitted by 28th February 2012
  • Nokia must have permission to publish a link to your app and screenshots on the wiki, discussion boards, newsletters, and any other mechanisms while promoting this competition and its results. Note that these are automatically granted when you upload them to the wiki by the site Terms and Conditions.
  • Only apps that we can test will be accepted.

See the fine print for more information.

Evaluation of entries

As this is a wiki competition we will be evaluating the entries based on its article - the winner will be the article that provides the most useful feedback and best tips for other developers who are considering using the components. The article will however be reviewed in the context of its associated app.

The results are expected to be announced in March.


Generic questions or comments concerning this competition can be addressed as comments to this wiki page.
