Celcom, one of the major mobile telecommunication providers in Malaysia is organizing a developer competition. This is the second installment of the competition. In conjunction with this competition, a workshop that encapsulates workshop is organized. The workshop is separated into technical and business section.

Throughout the fall I will be teaching a series of workshops on Qt for Symbian using the N8 around the U.S. and Canada. We have already held two well attended classes in Boston and Toronto. More information about the workshops can be found below If you live and/or work in North America, I hope to see you at one of the remaining workshops.
Forum Nokia and Integrated Computer Solutions (ICS), a Qt certified training and consulting partner, are providing an intensive two day hands-on, classroom style coding workshop that will train developers how to use Qt to develop mobile applications for the new Nokia N8. Attendees will learn how to create mobile applications with Qt by using an actual N8. Workshops are currentlyscheduled for Boston, Toronto, NYC, Austin, San Francisco, Seattle, and Vancouver with more cities being added soon.
Last month of mine was busy in studying for my 6th term exams, helping others on Forum Nokia Discussion Board , Helping Via Emails & PMs and Yes! working on my 3 projects (1 is a paid project for a company and 2 are under-development for our end-users). Instead of these activities , few of the news are worth sharing :
1- Got one-year membership of Forum Nokia Launchpad.
2- Selected as DZone’s Most Valuable Blogger .
3- Collaborated with inneractive and releasing one of my title “Brain Bash” for free in the upcoming days (May be tommorow ).
Coming Soon On OVI Store
4- Currently, working on a motion sensor game for S60 3rd & 5th edition phones but don’t know when it gets complete. However, One of a good news (for my facebook fans only) is that they may get a copy for free, once i manage to finish & release it. So, stay tuned at our FB Page.
It is easy to recognize the person that has a lot of discussions board posts or writes an excellent article or series of articles on the wiki. Those users stand out they put in a real effort and it is great when I can reward them. However, in doing so we overlook the average develop. The members who help others without fanfare or recognition play a huge part in our success.
It happened this month that the Wiki administration stepped back and looked at the people that quietly make changes to the articles and code examples that make those pages better. Although we chose one person this month for Contributor of the Month, that person represents everyone that finds a flaw and fixes it.
Just having one little piece of information that isn’t quite accurate with the latest API, or a bit of code that is just a little better when written another way is important. It saves frustration and improves the code resources and articles when someone corrects the articles. It would have been easier for Mavi85bmn to not do anything and to wait for someone else to find and fix the problem. It would have been easy for her to write to the editor or add a comment to the page that there was a problem. But that is not what this everyday community member did. She found the solution and fixed the problem. She saw the code and improved it. Mavi85bmn went the extra mile and we all owe her thanks for making our lives easier.
Her and the dozens of other quiet community members like her.
Thanks to Forum Nokia for selecting me as a Forum Nokia Champion for another year (2010-2011). This autumn is really busy for me with teaching, but starting in December I have a lot of time to write more examples with Flash Mobile in Nokia Devices.
