Recently there have been some good articles on the Forum Nokia Wiki. I would like to point some of them here.

This article demonstrates how to install Qt4 and PyQt4 on Nokia N800 and illustrates it with a very simple example that uses it. Qt is a cross-platform application framework that makes it easier to develop applications and user interfaces. PyQt is a set of bindings that allows programmers to access Qt library using Python.

Location Based Services are one of the most used services in mobile application today. Sometime, routs are needed to determine how to go to a location more easily. This tutorial teaches how to get routs from Google Maps.

Fixed-point math is a technique for representing floating point numbers as integers. By using this technique one is able to simulate floating point operations on hardware that don’t support them (or at least on hardware that don’t have dedicated floating point units, as many of current devices). This technique has been used used on many graphics applications (i.e. games). This article demonstrates use of fixed-point math for Python

Using texture maps to represent text in 2D/3D graphics application is an old technique, but it’s very popular because it’s very fast and efficient. This article demonstrates use of Textured-mapped font.

Several recent Web Services like Twitter, Flickr and Yahoo! Maps have been presented with REST as one access option. The Representational State Transfer (REST), as named by its creator, Roy Fielding, is defined as a architectural style for distributed hypermedia systems. More than people usually call “web service”, REST emphasizes scalability of component interactions, generality of interfaces, independent deployment of components, and intermediary components to reduce interaction latency, enforce security, and encapsulate legacy systems (Roy Fielding). Basic methods for accessing and modifying your remote REST resources are demonstrated in this article.
