We’re pumping up our webinar offering for 2013, and your favorite format is back — our experts presenting the topics that interest you most, with the usual lively Q&A afterwards. But we know how much you appreciate the opportunity to get your questions answered by our experts, so we are introducing two new styles of webinar: “Ask the expert” and “UI clinics”.
Our experts, your questions answered
In the monthly “Ask the expert” sessions, you’ll have the opportunity to pose those thorny questions you have been wrestling with to one of our experts. Sessions covering games, communications and networking, and app performance are planned with others to follow. You can ask questions during the sessions, but to get the best response we invite you to submit questions in advance — so our experts can ensure you get the best answer possible.
The first “Ask the expert” session will be hosted by Michael Samarin of Futurice and focuses on game development. It runs on Tuesday 15 January (8 a.m. London time) and Wednesday 16 January (8 p.m. San Francisco time). You can submit your questions now by e-mailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Details of the other sessions will be available on the webinars page as usual.
The doctor is in
In the “UI Clinics”, you’re invited to submit your apps and related UI questions to get feedback from our UI/UX expert, Jan Krebber. You may think that submitting your app for review sounds a bit scary, but it won’t be: our goal is to ensure everyone comes out better off. You can still ask questions either in advance or while attending the webinar. But, if you’re interested in discussing your design live on-air, you can simply send your app along with any specific questions to email@example.com and confirm you’re happy for us to show your app, either running or through screenshots, during the webinar. Jan will review your app in advance of the session, and if it’s chosen you’ll be invited to join Jan live.
The first clinic is on Tuesday 29 January (8 a.m. London time) and Wednesday 30 January (8 a.m. San Francisco time).
Another great year ahead for Series 40
Building on the break-out success of the Nokia Asha range in 2012, 2013 promises to be another cracker year for Series 40. So make the most of those long winter nights and join us in a webinar, pose a question to our experts, and get the feedback to have your app design singing in tune. We have a great four months of content lined up for you. And that’s not all stay tuned for more great Series 40 news as we move from spring into summer.
The schedule for January 2013 is already set with sessions covering use of persistent storage in your Java ME apps, a deep dive into four templates for Series 40 web apps, porting your apps from Symbian, and an introduction to Nokia Ad Exchange (NAX) among others. The first session kicks-off on 8 January. You can find more details about these — the first of next year’s sessions — on the webinars’ page, why not check them out today and get 2013 organised!
