All about Pys60 & PyS60 Applications

Developing apps with Python on Symbian platform may be useful for research, prototyping and study purposes. This blog has been archived and would be mantained for the benefit of researchers, students and teachers who still use Python on Symbian.

Python apps look like "native" Symbian apps and can be distributed in the same way. They can access the same platform services but, without the need to dive deep into Symbian C++, they are quick and easy to create. You can write fully functional apps after only a few hours of study. Python is a fun, fast and completely free alternative to native C++ development.

Book: Python on Symbian: Mobile app development made easy
During 2009-2010, I wrote this book together with Bogdan Galiceanu for Python enuthusiasts. If you don't yet know Python, this book gently introduces you to the language, coding conventions and basic programming elements. Later chapters of the book take you on a tour of Python on Symbian. With illustrations, screenshots and working examples for Symbian devices, this book makes getting up and running easy. The book shows you how to put together Python apps as prototypes and as complete products to sell through a commercial app store.
The book also contains contribution from other PyS60 experts from the Community. It holds a foreword by Jo Stichbury and Hamish Willee from Symbian.
I hope you will have great fun with this book!
You can get the book from Amazon or access it online on the Nokia Developer Wiki.
Network programming with PyS60 (Series of 16 posts)
PyS60 network programming is very close to standard Python programming. The following posts cover the fundamentals in network programming to begin with. The later posts give a flavour of advanced network programming.

Featured Applications
During the course of time, we featured several great Python applications on our blog. These are listed below.

Other Applications and Projects
Following are the other important posts, applications and projects developed by me and fellow blog authors at Croozeus.
