Audacious Software does Qt/Symbian

January 11th, 2010

Over the past few months, I’ve been working hard on a Symbian project for Northwestern University’s medical school. I’ve written a blog post describing the work at the official Symbian weblog.

A few thoughts:

1. I’ve really enjoyed developing using Qt on the S60 platform. I’m looking forward to finding new work on that platform.

2. The distributed IPC mechanism that I’ve built on top of XMPP is a technique that I originally implemented using Shion’s remote command interface. Because of this project, I haven’t recently had the time to bring some of the lessons learned back to Shion, but I’m looking forward to doing so when my calendar clears a bit.

3. This project is also an evolution of the context-aware computing work that I did in graduate school. I’m looking forward to bring Pennyworth officially under the Audacious Software banner once I clear up a few things with my former collaborators at the university.

I’d like to reiterate that Audacious Software is very interested in doing more internal and client work in the Symbian mobile space. If you have a potential project that this company might be able to help out with, please let me know.
