With a vision to cater to the lower segment of the market, Nokia Pakistan and djuice have joined hands to start a series of Developer Workshops that aim to provide training focused on S40 devices.
The workshop was recently held at Telenor’s Regional Head Office, Islamabad and included developers from SEECS, NUST University as well as some SMEs.
Faisal Iqbal, Mobile Specialist at Orison Technologies imparted training to the participants and shared the details of development tools available for game development with QML.
Talking about the partnership, Faisal Riaz, Applications & Devices Specialist, djuice said, “djuice partnered with Nokia to give a chance to amateur app developers to improve their skill set and perhaps do more with it than they can right now. During training, we received a great response from the developers and being one of the leading telecom service providers in Pakistan, we feel it is our responsibility to support initiatives that promise industry-wide growth. We hope to enter into new mutually beneficial partnerships in future with Nokia as well and contribute to better services for end consumers.”
Expressing her views, Rabia Nizami, Business Development Manager EDX, Nokia Pakistan & Afghanistan said, “I appreciate the interest level of Islamabad’s developer community to learn and excel in their chosen field. Nokia has been organizing these kinds of workshops for developers in Pakistan for the past 2 years. As part of Nokia partnership with djuice to build the local Ecosystem and provide new opportunities to the local developers, this time around Nokia offered a Training Workshop in Islamabad partnered with djuice and P@SHA for Game development with QML. The workshop was geared towards channelizing the strengths of local developers and providing them resources to develop more locally relevant mobile apps for Nokia Smart Devices in our country.”
At the workshop’s conclusion, certificates were distributed among all the participating developers. Events of this nature are pertinent to take the local IT/Telecom industry to the next level and enable better mobility experience for end consumers especially in countries like Pakistan where majority of people use S40 mobile phones.
