Python “Mobile Snakes” presentation

Back in November I gave a quick presentation to the Perth Django/Python Users Group.

It covered a brief history of Python on mobile devices (Maemo/MeeGo/Nemo/Sailfish), and an example Python/Qt application which has a custom UI for each platform.

The slides can be downloaded here:

Perth Trains – Live Departures ported to Sailfish

I’m pleased to announce that “Perth Trains” has been ported to Sailfish OS, using Silica QML components.

The app provides a simple way to view ‘live’ departure times of train services across Perth. Versions for MeeGo Harmattan and Maemo 5 are also available.

I’m very much looking forward to tomorrow’s announcement from Jolla as to what the N9’s successor might look like!

Source code is hosted on github.
