Develop a Qt Quick application and win an E7!



  • EDIT: this is a citation from forum.nokia; Link to the original source is at the end, Volker

    The "Qt SDK 1.1 Tech Preview is now available":http://labs.qt.nokia.com/2011/01/20/qt-sdk-1-1-technology-preview-released/, and comes with cool new features like Design for visually creating QML UIs, and seamless deployment support for both Symbian and Maemo. To encourage you to play with it, we're having a "Quick Competition" - you have roughly 6 weeks to either:

    • create an amazing app in Forum Nokia Projects that will catch the eye and please the "inner nerd", or
    • write a great Qt Quick article, tutorial or guide (with code) on the Wiki

    h2. How to participate

    These are the rules if you want to create a project:

    • download and install the Qt SDK 1.1 Tech Preview
    • launch the Qt Creator and fire up Design to create a nice UI, views and transitions
    • implement the logic in JavaScript or Qt C++
    • use Forum Nokia Projects to host your source code
    • describe how and why you created your application, library, tool, etc. using your project space's wiki engine
    • you app MUST work on a Symbian^3 device
      ** working on Symbian S60 5th Edition and Maemo are bonus
    • associate at least the "Qt Quick" category to the project (check that it appears here)
    • finish by March 6th, 2011 23:59 GMT

    These are the rules to create wiki articles:

    • download and install the Qt SDK 1.1 Tech Preview
    • check out what's new or changed
    • write some great tutorial, guide or an article with code, in order to
      ** help fellow developers get started with the new SDK
      ** highlight useful features of the new Design tool
      ** guide new comers to the wonders of QML, JavaScript and Qt hooks
      ** provide tips & best practices
      ** use your imagination to think of more
    • create one or many articles in the Forum Nokia Wiki
    • add the "Qt Quick" category to your Wiki article (check that it appears here)
    • finish by March 6, 2011 23:59 GMT

    All content made public and tagged with "Qt Quick" category (either in projects or in wiki Jan 20 - Mar 6) will be considered valid entries for the competition. All submissions should be original work, should be publicly visible and licensed so that the community can reuse it.

  • "you app MUST work on a Symbian^3 device"

    If we do not own a Symbian^3 device and only test it on the simulator will the entry be valid?

    You can make use of Forum Nokia RDA service in case you don't have a device.



  • Cool I'l use it



  • Awesome, I have a few projects I can touch up and release to public. Maybe even a wiki article on some new stuff. Why ForumNokia instead of DevNet? Two competing siblings with the same parent?

    Not quite. While we deal with all things Qt, ForumNokia focusses on development for Nokia devices.



  • Still, you have to admit that there is a... certain overlap there.



  • I'll try to participate. May I try to do both article and app? If I have some spare time since it is exam time :-p



  • Just decided it isn't worth the effort. Forum Nokia is quite large and there's only 3 (possible more, I know) winners. Better off selling the app.

    The competition rules DO NOT say that you are not allowed to also sell your application, so why not build the hottest application, make the source available for others to learn from the best, get the E7 and sell it on Ovi store and make money?

    Sounds like a perfect plan to me.

    Also if more number of participants are there the number of devices given will also be increased. And I am quiet confident if you submit it you would win for sure.

    Also people can form teams and contribute to the projects. I am a bit engaged with some project, so will wait till QDN comes up with similar contest.:)
