Developers for Nokia's Symbian system have to make a decision in the future: will they or won't they support Windows Phone apps development? The question is a tricky one as going from Symbian QT to the languages for Windows Phone is not so easy nor direct.
To aide in that, Microsoft has created a whole package of tools, white papers and even a roadshow to help devs come on over. For those who remember, Microsoft did a similar program with Android and iOS a few months back, so this is just a continuation of a theme to lure in new devs by making the transition a bit easer.
The new tools are the following:
- The “Windows Phone Guide for Symbian Qt Application Developers” white paper: 8 chapters, 100 pages
- The addition of Symbian Qt to the Windows Phone API mapping tool
- The “Nokia Windows Phone Training” roadshow, a series of developer events starting today in Paris
