Hello Folks,

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:

Getting Started With Python S60 :

The traning sessions are availabe according to different phases. Also you can see the examples classified according to modules.

Logs Module to access the phone logs.

(23 Nov 2007) 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!

(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.

Import messanging

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.
