So one of my main motivations to start blogging again was me regaining interest in mobile development after taking a stab at it with TrafficCam . TrafficCam was pretty awesome for its time because it was bringing back pictures of intersections and providing road conditions for drivers.
So now 3 years later , im working ( hopefully soon ) on another opensource application on the symbian platform using QT for an online service called foursquare .
So before one can get started , setting up the environment properly on windows can be quite a task, so ive written up a short tutorial that will help others set up on windows ( windows xp in my case )
What i learnt that order was key when getting things installed .
1) First based on your phone and target version of symbian get the appropriate SDK . I used the S60 Wikipedia Page to help me out on that .
You can download the appropriate SDK here
2) Install the Open C/C++ plug in for the sdk .
3) After installing the sdk you can head over to the Qt download site and get the latest version of Qt and Qt Creator . Makes sure you install this on the same drive as the SDK .
3) At this point you should be able to launch Qt Creator and use one of the example projects to get started.
By following the order, i found that the editor found all the locations of the builds, sdk by default . Not having to manually set all that is a real time saver .
