MUPE is advertised as: “Multi-User Publishing Environment (MUPE) is an application platform for mobile multi-user context-aware applications. MUPE allows anyone to easily create their own mobile services, games and applications. To achieve these goals, MUPE uses a plethora of technologies to reduce the complexity of developing mobile services.”

Mr. Riku Suomela from Nokia gave introduction to Mupe platform and showed few examples how to use it. Mupe was seen as quite interesting possibility. As the result from intensive 24 hours programming, some interesting applications surfaced; Bomberman game, location based Doom, Worms game, Lovepiipper (notify that you have interesting people around you), and Viral tag game.

Symbian Code Camp 2003 - Summer

24 hours Symbian code camp 2003

The main topic of the first code camp was Symbian OS. Symbian is operating system used by many cell phones. Idea behind the code camp was that people who had not previous experience on programming for mobile phones, could get a crash start in this event. Code camp was arranged as part of International summer school of telecommunications. The code camp started on Thursday afternoon with an short lecture about Symbian programming and some examples. 24 hours later the best application was awarded. Those 24 hours included intensive collaboration with team mates and also with competing teams as co-operation was encouraged. If programming was not progressing participants could freshen up with sauna and discuss their ideas there also.
