Code Camp is aimed mainly at students interested in software development.
The Camp begins on Thursday evening and lasts for the following 24 hours.
It includes 24 hours of intensive programming.
This years Code Camp concentrates on Nokia 770 Internet Tablet and Maemo.
Maemo is a development platform to create applications for the Nokia 770
Internet Tablet and other maemo compliant handheld devices. More information
can be found from www.maemo.org.
Please bring your own sleeping bags and towels! Sauna and some snacks will
be provided. If you have a personal laptop, we suggest that you take it with
you as you will be working in teams.
Extra for students: 2 credit points for active participation
during the 3 day event. Requires returned programming assignment
and a half-page report of each presentation of the Summer School.
The work done in the code camp will be evaluated after the code camp.
All reports on the presentations must be returned no later than one week
after the event, August 11th.
Each student must sign up in order to get the credits. This must be
done during Wednesday morning at the info-desk.
The best work done during the code camp (based on application, idea or implementation) will be awarded.
The Winner of Maemo Code Camp arranged in conjunction of the 15th Summer
School on Telecommunications is RonAmp. Congratulations to team
Simo Tuokko, Jani Lehtimäki and Antti Tohmo!

Submit your work in a single tar/zip package. Upload link
An example code using python, bthildon.py,
is available. It can be used e.g. to obtain data from a GPS device.
An FAQ for Codecamp 2006 can be found from
Maemo 2.0 tutorial (workstations in code camp have been installed already
with Maemo 2.0 platform, tutorial however shows many important features. Try
to modify the "hello world" -program!):
From the tutorial:
(start scratchbox cross compilation environment from a shell.)
(run command to start the window to show graphical 770
emulator. Do not run from scratchbox, but from a separate shell)
To start basic Maemo environment, run inside Scratchbox environment:
[sbox-SDK_PC: ~] > export DISPLAY=:2
(if not already set in startup scripts (~/.bash_profile)
[sbox-SDK_PC: ~] > af-sb-init.sh start
To stop the Maemo GUI, run inside Scratchbox:
[sbox-SDK_PC: ~] > af-sb-init.sh stop
If you just want to see, how your application works on the environment, you
can run it with the ?run-standalone.sh? script. This will set right
environment variables and theme.
[sbox-SDK_PC: ~] > run-standalone.sh name_of_the_executable
Now you can compile programs in scratchbox shell and show graphical windows
