Book: Developing Series 60 Applications: A Guide for Symbian OS C++ Developers
Publisher: Addison Wesley
The first official book on Series 60 Platform development—from design to deployment
Series 60 smartphone developers are deploying the next wave of mobile services. With more than 60% of all mobile phone manufacturers licensing Series 60 Platform, Series 60 represents the smartphone market with the largest user base for mobile application developers.
To help nurture this growing market, Nokia has worked directly with EMCC Software, a leading Symbian and Series 60 Competence Center, to create Developing Series 60 Applications, the definitive guide to Series 60 development for C++ programmers and software designers. Fully reviewed by Nokia’s subject matter experts, the authors cover the entire development process—from design, programming, and testing to debugging and deployment—while providing sixty complete projects, each with full C++ source code and installation scripts.
Developing Series 60 Applications includes coverage of:
Series 60 development tools, IDEs, and C++ SDKs
The underlying Symbian OS
Application design with the Series 60 framework architecture
User interface controls, menus, dialogs, lists, and editors
Basic and advanced Series 60 communications APIs
Multimedia development: drawings, fonts, bitmaps, animation, and audio
Invoking standard application views and using application engines
Building more powerful applications with C++ APIs
Series 60 Developer Platforms 1 and 2
