A guide to programming Symbian OS smartphones using OPL (The Open Programming Language): a simple to learn, open--source scripting language, ideal for fast--track development of enterprise applications. This book provides a hands--on development environment for both the experienced and aspiring programmer, demonstrating the ease of use of Symbian OS technologies through the utilization of OPL. OPL has a shallow learning curve which allows bespoke corporate tools to be developed in house by technical staff who aren't necessarily trained programmers. Rapid Mobile Enterprise Development For Symbian OS provides a clear guide on both how to program, and understanding the structure of the language through a keyword dictionary. Any bespoke OPL application can grow with a company, eventually providing access to more advanced C++ code through OPX extensions. From the home programmer who wants to do more with their phone, to the enterprise developer, Rapid Mobile Enterprise Development For Symbian OS is the ideal starting point for simple, innovative application design using OPL.

Ewan Spence studied Computing and Artificial Intelligence at Edinburgh University before discovering his first Psion PDA. Since then he has actively followed the development of mobile computing technology, and become one of the leading of mobile computing technology, and become one of the leading authorities on the OPL language of Symbian OS. He has produced software in OPL since 1994, including the ever--popular and addictive a Vexeda game for Symbian OS mobile phones. Since providing support for and fostering a vibrant Open Source and Freeware community for Programmers through the FreEPOC Software House, Ewan has continued to help the wider Symbian community through the All About Symbian family of websites. He strongly believes that Programming computers should be something that is easy, accessible, and simple to understand for every user. It shouldna t require a university degree and months of studying. He currently lives in Edinburgh with his wife, Vikki, his two daughters, Eilidh and Mairi, and Crow, the puppet.
