Why we're boycotted by Nokia?



  • As you know downloading Qt SDK is forbidden for IPs from Iran. I just want to announce my discomfiture of this.
    You may know almost all social sites (facebook, youtube, blogspot, wordpress, ....) are prohibited by Iranian Government and I can't watch training videos. On the other side Nokia is applying embargo on my country, so I can't see download page of Qt :-|

    I hope you're happy now.





  • [quote author="task_struct" date="1325435492"]Hello,

    try with FTP - ftp://ftp.trolltech.no/videos/ and ftp://ftp.trolltech.no/qtsdk/[/quote]

    Thank you but videos of 2011 are not there.



  • Patience is a virtue. Not only for waiting for answers in the forums, but as well for downloading videos. This will come for 2011 DevDays videos too.

    We're subject to law and regulations, and while I perfectly understand that they make your life difficult, there is unfortunately nothing we can do.

    Ok. Thank you.

    I'll wait (and hope videos were not inaccessible in my country :) )

    I don't know how strong firewalling in Iran is, but you might try using proxy servers/ tor network to get around "questionable regulations". Although, I have to admit, that is not a convenient way.



  • In Cuba we have the same problem, unfortunately Governments and Companies are not who really suffer this laws and regulations, people indeed. But well, life isn't fair. Coming back to the purpose of my post here, I can tell you that we usually use the "TOR":https://www.torproject.org/ network for that kind of thing, it works the 99% of the time, because there is some sites that some way detected us, even using this technique.



  • u can easily download whatever u want by using free antifilters like proxifire or freegate



  • Ironically it is Iran that is being terrorized in numerous ways - N1 target for cyber terrorism, N1 target for financial terrorism, N1 target for political terrorism, N1 target for economic terrorism...

    On the bright side - soroush - you are not losing that much, the dev talks are more informative in direction rather than educational. Those videos won't teach you Qt programming, a good book on the other hand will. There is a free online book on Qt - "an introduction to design patterns in c++ with qt", and I'd also recommend "Foundations of Qt Development" which is not free but you'll probably be able to get it even in Iran.

    mahsa_106l - proxies are usually hellishly slow, especially free ones, good for opening a web page or downloading a torrent file and getting the actual content p2p, but not really an option for downloading huge files. Not to mention that "censorship done right" blocks entire IP ranges, not just some domain, so you don't even get p2p. At any rate, downloading big stuff like the SDK or dev talk videos through a proxy is not really a viable solution.
