Forum Nokia Is Helping Commercial Maemo Developers Get on The Ovi Store For Free

In a move I can only label as awesome, Forum Nokia at the Maemo Barcelona Long Weekend announced that Maemo commercial developers interested in publishing at the Ovi Store are invited to apply to their Launchpad program for free and if approved, will have free access to Ovi Publisher plus the regular services from the Launchpad program.

In other words, if you have a good Maemo application, Nokia will help you publish it to the Ovi Store for a grand price of free. Details regarding this announcement are expected next week, but developers are encouraged already to apply with details of the projects they are working on.

Forum Nokia Developer Conference 09

I’m Heading To The Forum Nokia Developer Conference ’09

The Forum Nokia Developer Conference is happening on the coming Monday and I will be making my way to Bangalore to attend on Nokia’s kind invitation. The conference is an event where Nokia invites developers to educate them on the opportunities for building for Nokia devices and also to help them acquire the necessary tools for the purpose.

From what I’ve  heard, we can expect a few signification announcements on Monday and to give you a better idea of what to expect, I’ve reproduced the agenda for the conference below. The event should also provide an insight into the developer’s mind and why they find a particular platform more attractive and the challenges they face. I am really looking forward to this one and will be covering the event live. I have already setup a live twitter feed page for tweets from the event and you can simply keep an eye on it to know the latest on and from #FNDC09.
