Mark Wilcox

Mark has been involved in handset development projects for Ericsson, Fujitsu, Nokia, Panasonic and Samsung. He has worked on everything from a GPRS stack, device drivers and a power management server to messaging applications and the code that draws the soft keys. While working as a software architect for Nokia's Multimedia business unit, developing their flagship Nseries products, Mark developed his interest in the multimedia capabilities of Symbian OS. He drew on this experience when co-authoring Multimedia on Symbian OS: Inside the Convergence Device for Symbian Press in 2008. He became interested in the open source development model while working on Linux-based, set-top-box products and has been actively attempting to improve the environment for free and open source software on the Symbian platform ever since. He has successfully ported a number of application and middleware projects to the Symbian platform, both open and closed source.

Mark became an Accredited Symbian Developer and a Forum Nokia Champion in 2007. In 2009, he joined the technical services team at the Symbian Foundation, dedicated to helping developers get the most out of the platform.
