Mobile Python is the introduction of Python programming language to the mobile space.  This practical hands-on book teaches readers how to realize their application ideas on the Symbian OS. Programming on the Symbian mobile platform has been difficult and time consuming in the past.  This innovative new title will remedy this problem. 

Chapters deal with topics that are based on Python S60 features and presented in an order that lets the user learn first the “simple to code” ones and then increasing in complexity.

About the author

Jurgen Scheible is a designer, media artist and musician who holds a degree in telecommunications from Karlsruhe, Germany. After graduating, he worked for eight years at Nokia in Finland pursuing various positions such as programmer, product manager and competence transfer manager. Besides his occupation, he performed and produced music as well as media art under the pseudonym Lenin's Godson.

In 2003, he left his engineering career to concentrate full-time on his creative career, because he felt his heart was much more in his artistic works that in engineering. In 2004, he became a doctoral student at the  media Lab at the University of Art and Design, Helsinki, where he established the Mobile Hub, a prototype development environment for mobile client and server applications. it has a strong focus on artistic approaches and creative design, and serves as a resource to art and design students who use mobile technology as part of their projects. His doctoral research focuses on designing multimodal user interfaces for creating and sharing interactive artistic experiences.

Since 2004, he has been evangelizing Python for S60 as one of its pioneers. he is internationally active having given talks and taught innovation workshops in both academic and professional settings on more than 40 occasions, in places such as Stanford University, MIT, NTU Taiwan, Yahoo research Berkeley, Tsinghua University Beijing, Nokia and Nokia Siemens Networks, in more than 17 countries. His focus is on rapid mobile application prototyping using creative approaches for innovation.

In 2006, he spent several months as a visiting scientist at MIT, Boston in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL). Jurgen was recognized as a Forum Nokia Champion in 2006 and 2007 for his driving vision of building bridges between art, engineering and research. He was one of the winners of the ACM Computers in Entertainment Scholarship Award in 2006 and of the Best Arts Paper Award at ACM Multimedia 2005 conference.

The philosophy behind his works is to bring back the depth of human feelings and emotional aspects to the digital world which, in his opinion, were lost with the arrival of the fast-paced digital production technology. By inspiring other with his works, he gets inspired himself. This leads him to many new ides for designing new kinds of interactive experiences for people, especially in the are of mobile phone application that fuse the real and the virtual worlds. He believes this era will change the way we live and communicate in the future and it will transform societies. Therefore it is important, in his opinion, to design for these coming applications.

Ville Tuulos is currently a researcher in the Department of Computer Science, University of Helsinki, Finland. He has more than 15 years' experience of creative hacking, including data visualization, web research engines, and machine-learning algorithms. He has been an enthusiastic Pythonista since 2000 and he has been exploring and extending the limits of python for S60 since 2005. He has used it to implement, among others, real-time image processing algorithms, various positioning techniques and an urban game for 200 players in New York City.

The world's most infamous hacker offers an insider's view of the low-tech threats to high-tech security
Kevin Mitnick's exploits as a cyber-desperado and fugitive form one of the most exhaustive FBI manhunts in history and have spawned dozens of articles, books, films, and documentaries. Since his release from federal prison, in 1998, Mitnick has turned his life around and established himself as one of the most sought-after computer security experts worldwide. Now, in The Art of Deception, the world's most notorious hacker gives new meaning to the old adage, "It takes a thief to catch a thief."
Focusing on the human factors involved with information security, Mitnick explains why all the firewalls and encryption protocols in the world will never be enough to stop a savvy grifter intent on rifling a corporate database or an irate employee determined to crash a system. With the help of many fascinating true stories of successful attacks on business and government, he illustrates just how susceptible even the most locked-down information systems are to a slick con artist impersonating an IRS agent. Narrating from the points of view of both the attacker and the victims, he explains why each attack was so successful and how it could have been prevented in an engaging and highly readable style reminiscent of a true-crime novel. And, perhaps most importantly, Mitnick offers advice for preventing these types of social engineering hacks through security protocols, training programs, and manuals that address the human element of security.
Hacker extraordinaire Kevin Mitnick delivers the explosive encore to his bestselling The Art of Deception
Kevin Mitnick, the world's most celebrated hacker, now devotes his life to helping businesses and governments combat data thieves, cybervandals, and other malicious computer intruders. In his bestselling The Art of Deception, Mitnick presented fictionalized case studies that illustrated how savvy computer crackers use "social engineering" to compromise even the most technically secure computer systems. Now, in his new book, Mitnick goes one step further, offering hair-raising stories of real-life computer break-ins-and showing how the victims could have prevented them. Mitnick's reputation within the hacker community gave him unique credibility with the perpetrators of these crimes, who freely shared their stories with him-and whose exploits Mitnick now reveals in detail for the first time, including: A group of friends who won nearly a million dollars in Las Vegas by reverse-engineering slot machines Two teenagers who were persuaded by terrorists to hack into the Lockheed Martin computer systems Two convicts who joined forces to become hackers inside a Texas prison A "Robin Hood" hacker who penetrated the computer systems of many prominent companies-andthen told them how he gained access With riveting "you are there" descriptions of real computer break-ins, indispensable tips on countermeasures security professionals need to implement now, and Mitnick's own acerbic commentary on the crimes he describes, this book is sure to reach a wide audience-and attract the attention of both law enforcement agencies and the media.
