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:

Fremantle Line: Transperth Trains Live Departure Boards for N900 and Ubuntu

I have been playing around with pygtk (python and GTK), and have managed to come up with something resembling an app to provide live departure times for Transperth trains:
Perth Train Departure Board
I’ve named “Fremantle Line” after Maemo 5’s codename, Fremantle. It is also the destination of one of Perth’s 5 train lines.

It also works in portrait mode:

It is primarily intended for the Maemo 5 platform on the Nokia N900, but will also run under Ubuntu:

Still needs plenty of work, but I am finding it quite useful while out and about in Perth.
