Developers of Python for S60
(This Website is created and managed by Pankaj Nathani)
Many people who are new to python for S60 which is an Open source are looking for proper guidance on net regarding the same.Forum Nokia has already provided a platform to such people by including Python in their discussion boards.But this is my small effort to help such people by providing them some basic information and small sample applications using python.
For now I have provided a basic training session to people who are totally new to python here.I have divided the sessions into two phases as below:
The traning sessions are availabe according to different phases. Also you can see the examples classified according to modules.
More Phases and module-wise example are added regularly to this page advanced developers. So do stay in Touch!
(16 March 2008) As you all know I am planning to port this site on to a server. Also the tutorials will be expanded so that learners of PyS60 can profit more from this site. Those of you who would like to donate to this cause can click donate.

I have started working with python on my latest N95 and plunged into
the world of 3rd edition.There seem many complicated things but once
gone through successfully they are really simple.These include signing
the sis files with your own development certificate, using ensymble for
py2sis as making sis file for 3rd edition procedure is different then
from the 2nd edition phones.But all in all we can use the new and the
latest features of the 3rd edition devices. And in N95 specially the
Sensor (also with 5500) So long till next time!
(11 Nov 2007): I Have added a new page to the site, a new feature instead, i.e. Analysis and Feeback.

Mobile Python – Rapid Prototyping on the Mobile Platform is a hands-on introduction to Python for S60, written by Ville Tuulos and Jürgen Scheible. The book is about the well-known Python programming language brought to the Nokia smartphones. After reading this book, you will know how to turn your mobile phone to an artistic tool, web server, or a robot brain! Buy the book from Amazon or directly from Wiley. For more information, see the book website.
(16 Oct 2007): Python for S60 1.4.1 is now released. This is the final, officially signed release.More features and improved modules...
(26 Sep 2007) :Hello,
I am working to try to put some real applications that provide some
utility to the user and also such applications that make use of more
and more features of python so that developers can get an idea as how
to start making real time useful applications. This feature will be
added to the site shortly.
(25 Sep 2007) : Hello Friends, Developing applications in python is one thing. Moreover advanced developers in python can also try to write extensions for python.Extensions can be written using C/C++. I have started working on them under guidance of cyke.But its really different from writing applications in python.
(For the people who don't know what an extension means, Its like a user created module.We can use this extension to write our applications in python.
messanging is a inbuilt module in python.So I am talking about writing more such useful modules for better prospects for Python)
Some Extensions can be found in the modules section.
