Symbian Python Update

Matt Croyden mentioned the other day that there is a new Python for Series 60 Alpha release. Reading through Erik Smartt’s post on the topic, I realized that this offers a number of the features that I had wanted built in in the original release: Camera access, Address Book and Contact APIs, and other similar things.

I had put off working on Symbian Python work for a while, but with the new release, I think I’m going to put some more effort into it: use of the new APIs will make things easier (like automatically uploading pictures taken to flickr, one of my original goals) and makes me want to get hacking again.

Congratulations to the Python-on-Symbian team, and I’m looking forward to starting work with the new alpha release.

    Dear Chris, I have just completed a short course in web design. I want to continue to work from home due to my girls still being at school. The only thing is I was going to do “static web design” i.e. a web page with and email form but most of my friends want to be able to go in and update there own websites, i.e. post monthly newsletters. Is there some type of program I can purchase for this. I am not a programmer.
