Qt Developer Network opens in beta

Last week Qt quietly rolled out the public beta its new developer website, Qt Developer Network, which aims to provide a one-stop portal for Qt developers and consolidate resources that were previously spread across the main Qt website. It also provides a more vendor neutral destination for developers than Forum Nokia, something that could be important in helping drive adoption of the Symbian and MeeGo platforms by manufacturers other than Nokia.

Read on in the full article.

Very nice article, thanks for that.

One thing I'd like to add. You rightly point out that we maintain our own brand to keep neutrality for our product. That however is only one part of the story. Qt Development Frameworks is an entity on it's own for precisely this reason: we can do business with Nokia competitors without sharing information to other parties within Nokia.

Best,
Alexandra

Nokia+Android=success

Great news, but I still the only way for Nokia to survive and come on top of the smartphone applications battle is to adopt Android..competition is too tough... It's no longer 1990's, there is very little room to maneuver and time is money...and in Nokia's case a lot of money ($77billion in market cap to be precise )...

Your comment is baseless.

By that logic, Android should have closed shop two years ago, when Apple had a tremendous head start. And back then, Android had practically zero smartphones market share.

Nokia has +38% worldwide smartphones marketshare. Not building from that position (one of their last few significant advantages) but instead abandon it and join a platform with 10x smaller market share is totally and monumentally stupid at this point.

Maybe if Nokia's marketshare reaches 10%, then maybe going Android would make some sense. But right now, it would be a move that would precipitate itself into irrelevance -- becoming just another Android phone manufacturer with little control over its own destiny in terms of shaping the smartphone industry. And Nokia would have much less freedom and flexibility in building phones because they would be at the mercy of Google.
