UIQ wants YOU to deliver applications!

December 3, 2007

uiqwants.jpgUIQ wants YOU to start developing tomorrows killer applications using their platform and they want to help you do that. In order to do so, they’ll published a book called ‘UIQ 3: The Complete Guide’ early in 2008. Having some experience myself with Symbian development (I had problems even compiling the hello world code!) I realize this is great news! Not only will they publish the book, but the full content will be put online as a wiki. Users will be able to contribute with new material and corrections for further editions of the book. The book will also be published in Chinese in the future and the Symbian people told me Carbide.C++ v1.2 will make life easier.

The book/wiki is aimed to help both experienced and inexperienced C++ programmers to get started with and port their applications to the UIQ platform.

You’ll find the wiki at books.uiq.com
(make sure you put it in your bookmarks if you’re planning to start with UIQ development)

Here’s some of the topics to be covered:
