Introducing MeeCatalog for N9

I've lately been busy developing a couple of applications for Nokia's MeeGo smartphone, the N9. First of these applications (I'll get back to the second one another time) is called MeeCatalog, and in all simplicity it is used to browse and install applications available from the Debian repositories configured to the device. You can also use it to restore pre-installed software such as Angry Birds in case you have uninstalled it for some reason. Please note that the available content may vary between device software variants.

Welcome to Sviox's blog

It's been a long time since I last maintained any kind of web entity of myself in the Internet (besides social media of course). I used to run a domain of my own and kind of always expected myself to create a new one from scratch. Lately I've come to realize that what I want to share can be achieved with a lot less time and energy by creating a simple blog. So here it is, you've found it.

What will this blog be all about? I'm not sure about the exact content yet, but at least I'm planning on writing about software I develop on my free-time as well as creating some tutorials for the technologies I'm fond of.

And who might I be? In a nutshell, I'm a technology enthusiast who wants to share some of the ideas I have with the big audience. In civilian life, I work as a software designer specialized in user interface design and implementation for mobile devices. I've got a total of around eight years of working experience in a number of device platforms including MeeGo, Maemo, Android, Symbian S60, Java 2 ME, web applications and various other proprietary platforms.

Stay tuned.
