ABSTRACT:  Have you ever wanted to develop Smartphone applications, but were
put off by the intricacies of high-performance C++ programming? Now you no
longer need to be a Smartphone specialist to develop applications for the
Smartphone. Nokia is continually making application development easier and
easier by releasing language platform SDKs for Java and more recently

Python is considered one of the easiest programming languages to learn and
is noted for its ability to rapidly building applications. Nokia brings
these strengths to the S60 platform by fully integrating the Python
language. All API's and hardware features are available to Python as well as
a fully integration user interface layer for building native look and feel
applications. On top of that, Nokia recently released Python for S60 under
the Apache license (see http://sourceforge.net/projects/pys60).

At this month's meeting, we will learn more about the capabilities of Python
for S60 and an introduction to just how easy it is to create S60
applications with Python. The presentation will also demonstrate:

   - Using the python interpreter interactively from a PC
   - The native Smartphone UI library
   - Capturing an image from the built in camera
   - Communicating with other devices via Bluetooth
   - Making requests via the cellular interface
   - Communicating with web services (Yahoo, Flickr, Ning)
