Berlin has been scorching hot with Qt Contributors’ Summit in town and temperatures going up to 35 C.
The Qt Contributors’ Summit program is filled with interesting sessions, so many that it is impossible to attend all the sessions one would like to take part in. True to the Contributors’ Summit tradition, the program has been living all day, with sessions being moved around to avoid topic clashes.
In one day it has been possible to hear and discuss about mobile platforms, Qt Cloud Services, touch and gesture implementation and other interesting topics.
The day began with chief maintainer Lars Knoll presenting the state of the project, with the maintainers who are present, giving a short update on their areas. Qt 5.3 has achieved really impressive download numbers, getting 300k downloads in the first week, showing a strong and growing interest in Qt. The contributions to Qt have also stayed strong. As part of his presentation, Lars talked about the need to bring the Qt community even more together, by combining the commercial and open source aspects of the project.
We will be bringing Lars’ session to you on our Youtube channel once we get back from the event and a bit of time to edit the video. Also the slides will be made available, to make it easier to follow the talk.
Overall the first day has been full of interesting talks, great sessions and good coffee break discussions.
A big thank you goes to all our sponsors, Digia, Froglogic, BasysKom, Intel, Canonical, Pelagicore, ICS, KDAB and e-GITS, for making this possible!
Tomorrow will continue with a lot of sessions, and more discussions on the state and future of Qt.
