If creating once and marketing on a number of platforms was not enough motivation for developers to take up Qt, Nokia has added a trip to the upcoming Nokia Forum Developer Summit, San Francisco and a chance to be a Forum Nokia Champion to the mix.
Under the just announced Code Competition for Qt Mobility APIs, Nokia is inviting developers across the globe to create code samples for Symbian that utilize Qt and Qt Mobility APIs. The entries will then be assessed on their level of innovation and usefulness by a board of Nokia technical and business development experts. Many examples will be chosen for publishing on to www.forum.nokia.com as a resource for the Forum Nokia community and to help accelerate the use of Qt even further.
Out of these, the grand prize winner will be nominated Forum Nokia Champion and will receive a trip to the upcoming Nokia Forum Developer Summit to be held in San Francisco, California USA on June 9th and 10th, 2010. The best part is that developers can enter more than once and there are a host of other prizes to be won, including titles of Forum Nokia Champion and Nokia Devices. The contest is open from today onwards till January 31, 2010.
The interesting thing to note here is that Nokia doesn’t seem to be pushing Qt on Maemo as yet. Further proof that Nokia is with Symbian for the long run!
