Programming Smart Phones: Practical Experiences

Christoffer Eriksson and Daniel Guldbrandsen

This talk will give an overview of the issues involved in porting code from a desktop computing platform to a smart phone computing platform. We will go over the main differences in programming style, API features, and available resources when programming desktops and smart phones. We will detail specific problems that we have found when porting an interactive graphics application from the PC environment to Symbian smart phones, and give practical insights.

The speakers have spent the last year writing code for the Symbian operating system, using the Nokia Series 60 and Ericsson UIQ user interfaces, as well as Java MIDP. First as part of their MSc Thesis project, and lately as independent consultants. The speakers are currently wrapping up their MSc report on the topic.
