Nokia ipak brine o svojim „developrima“ još neko vrijeme

Nakon bure koja se digla na blogosferi, ubrzo je ponajboljem Symbian programeru Jan Ole Suhru (@janole), inače tvorcu najbolje Symbian aplikacije Gravity, došao ugodan poziv, kako on tvrdi, vrlo vjerovatno iz viših krugova Nokije te je vraćen unutar Nokia Developers Champions programa. Ipak Nokia mora držati do svojih programera, jer svijet pametnih telefona uvelike ovisi o aplikacijama i idejama ljudi koji se bave nekim sustavom.

Međutim, nedavno je na AllAboutSybian blogu osvanuo tekst među komentarima upućen upravo Nokia Champions programerima kako C++/Qt više nije u daljnjem strateškom planu Nokije te da nemaju više potrebe za Qt programerima. Tako Qt ispada iz programa Next Billion, a u jednu ruku je to bilo za očekivati. Nokia usmjerava sve svoje resurse u WP platformu što je u ovom trenutku ispravan potez ako žele postici veći uspjeh s njom. Ujedno veseli činjenica kako će Windows Phone ipak biti Symbianiziran odnosno Nokificiran što će rezultirati većim interesom Nokia fanova za tom platformom a samoj platformi dati nužne promjene kako bi postala interesantna široj masi.

Hello XXXXX,

I wanted to let you know personally that a decision was made to drop Symbian C++ and Qt experts from the Champions program.  You appear to fall in this group.  If you feel you have expertise in other technologies or some experience that would affect your status please write to me.

Below is the standard information as you can see there still are benefits for you.

As you know in June Nokia decided to not pursue a Linux based operating system.  As a result, like the rest of the Nokia family the champions must make cuts to best fulfill the future goals of Nokia. In our opinion your expertise was in Qt or other technologies that do not fit into Nokia’s future and a decision was made to end your Nokia Developer Championship early.

I want to personally thank you for your work as a Nokia Champion over the past few years and let you know that we are not just forgetting you. This fall Nokia Developer will start a new partnering program and you will be automatically added to this program with the option to opt out.  In addition you received this welcome gift and it is yours to use for the life of the device. Finally because of your devotion and dedication to Nokia if you wish to re-apply for the champions program this fall I will be sure to add weight to your application based on your past service.

Your championship will not expire until the end of July.

If you feel there is information that will affect your status please contact me.
