Hi , I had sent a proposal to Foss.in, an annual conference that happens in
Bangalore, India every year(supposed to be India's largest FOSS conference )
.This has been approved and I am being given a chance to talk about maemo in
one of the main sessions. Essentially the purpose for this was to create
awareness among Indian Foss community about maemo and what it offers as a
development environment . The basic points that I wish to talk about at the
conference are :

1.Benefits of developing for maemo5
                ->open (How open though? )
                ->Very debian like environment
                ->Services offered (How things are different? like I think
maemo does not use gpsd for gps based services)
                -> you can develop in python ... yeah!!!!
                 -> Economic Benefits how does one monetize his work for
2. Options for Linux based mobile development
3. Forward path for maemo (like shifting to qt)
                 -> As far as I would think shifting to qt might help in
porting maemo applications to symbian platform . Is that correct? Other
suggestions for this

4. Maemo5 vs Iphone as a develop environment , A comparison?
                  Ofcourse as I see their are definite economic benefits to
working on maemo5 , you can use your normal ubuntu  distro and developers do
not have to pay.

It would be great if I could get references that the community knows or
other cc licensed presentations on this (perhaps from this years maemo
summit) that touch these topics .Also please do give comments to make this
presentation better.

Also it would help to know when we may see n900 in Indian markets if ever?

My own background: I was gsoc developer this year for maemo mentored by
Valerio Valerio . I was really excited by the maemo experince and wanted to
pass it on .

P.S I would also ask anyone near the subcontinent during first week of
December to join the party in Bangalore.
