I have never developed anything on Symbian platform and the reason for this is that I couldn’t care less about the Symbian before. I have always been more into about Qt and gadgets that run Linux rather than Symbian.
Now the things have changed a bit – it’s possible to develop Qt applications for Symbian platform which makes easier to start app development on Symbian for me as a Qt developer. The other reason is, thanks to Qt Ambassador program, that I happen to own N8, which btw is a pretty good HW. To be honest, I can’t praise much the UX on N8, but still, it’s a good hardware.
So I have spent couple of evenings to getting familiar with Symbian development. The most natural way to start it (for me) is of course trying to port QuickFlickr for N8. Before writing more stuff, here’s the video where I run the latest version of QuickFlickr with new UI on N8.
