Qt Contributors’ Summit 2014 sum up

Published Saturday July 5th, 2014 | by

Lars opening speech

Lars making the opening speech

It’s almost a month since we gathered at the Estrel Conference Center to spend two days talking about Qt, where it is and where it’s heading.

The Summit started off with Lars Knoll giving the state of the project speech, which included status updates from various maintainers. The whole opening session can be watched on Youtube. One thing to raise from Lars’ speech is the need to unify Qt, to bring all Qt users closer to each other.

The two days contained over forty sessions on matters ranging from the use of box2d with QML to two sessions on QtCore. You can find many of the session notes from the Summit schedule page. And the more technical topics have threads on the Developer mailing list, which you can find from the list archives (search for threads marked QtCS).

Session ongoing

Over 40 sessions in two days

The weather in Berlin was exceptionally hot, bordering on uncomfortable outside. Luckily the conference center had good air conditioning. However during the evening event we could enjoy the warmth outside in the garden. The setting was very good for continuing the discussions that started during the day. The hardiest participants continued their discussion at the hotel lobby bar after the official evening event was closed.

A big part of events like the Contributors’ Summit are the coffee break and corridor discussions that take place in between sessions. The venue provided enough tables and a couple of good corners with benches to spend some time drafting the upcoming session agenda or working on the topics raised in previous sessions.

A big thank you to all the participants and of course to our sponsors!

Hope to see many of you at the Developer Days!

Embedded World 2014 | Qt on Embedded Buzzing

Published Wednesday February 26th, 2014 | by

We are in our second day at Embedded World 2014 (Nuremberg, Germany), the largest embedded systems show in Europe.

Together with some of our partners, KDAB, ICS, e-GITS and Adeneo Embedded, we are showcasing over 15 demos showing the power of Qt on various embedded platforms.

In the past couple of days, visitors to our booth have been looking for a quick and efficient way to develop application or devices in various embedded industries like automotive, medical, industrial automation and household appliances. Touch user interfaces are now the norm in industries where just a couple of years, fluid or graphics-intensified UIs were not hard requirements. Embedded-focused companies are looking to provide their end users with an easy-to-use, i-Phone-like and consistent user experience that also spans various form factors and operating systems. Judging the crazy traffic to our booth, Qt and the Qt Enterprise Embedded offering seems to be the hallelujah answer to the trials and tribulations many face in software development for embedded systems.

The agenda for the day includes:

Season’s Greetings from Qt Hackathon

Published Thursday December 19th, 2013 | by

With Qt 5.2 and Creator 3.0 released, we decided to shift towards the right holiday mood and arranged a Qt Hackathon event. On Wednesday noon 22 project teams across all our main development sites set off to compete for the coolest and craziest things we can do with Qt 5.2. During the next 24 hours we would see which team would have what it takes to hack through the night and complete something the other teams would vote to be the best!

As we all know, Qt offers extreme versatility and one can create pretty much anything with it. So we also had everything ranging from potential new features in Qt and tooling, via cloud based utility applications and awesome games, to drawing pictures with lasers and controlling robots with Qt. We also had great fun just hacking together as well as sharing experiences across different sites.

So, after 24 hours of fun we gathered together to see what each team had created and voted for the best ones, which were:

  • Greatest demo for Qt marketing: QtLaserScanner - Qt Enterprise Embedded demo application that controls galvanometer laser scanner
  • Biggest potential Qt future feature: QtQuickWidget - Prototype a better way to combine QtQuick, QWidget and OpenGL
  • Most creative domain to use Qt in: Lego Mindstorms - Port Qt 5.2 to Lego™ Mindstorms (and create a remote control app with Qt for Android)

In addition to the winners we think quite many of the topics are worth more research and development – and we might even see some of these becoming part of Qt and its tooling in the not too distant future.

With these greetings and some pictures from our Qt Hackathon the whole Qt organization at Digia wishes happy holidays for everyone – and happy hacking!

What an event so far! Over 600 people were jammed in to the Qt Developer Days 2013 Berlin keynote speeches this morning and the level of excitement was high. Kalle Dalheimer from KDAB gave an uplifting welcome setting the stage for 2 days of Qt love and fun.

Digia announced an extremely exciting piece of information. Tommi Laitinen, SVP International Products at Digia gave a first-glimpse announcement about the upcoming Qt Mobile Edition.

What is the Qt Mobile Edition, you ask?

The Qt Mobile Edition is a full mobile app development offering from Digia that lets indie developers, small companies and app development houses build amazing multi-platform native mobile apps for Android & iOS with one affordable Qt package.

  • Full Qt libraries and development tools for unbeatable native performance and maximum developer efficiency
  • Cross-platform environment for Android & iOS app development (plus other mobile platforms to be added soon)
  • Built-in Qt-optimized cloud data storage & user management (Enginio Qt Cloud)
  • Commercial development and deployment license simplifying application distribution
  • Unlimited application development support from Digia experts
  • Subscription-based self-service model starting at $149 per month per user license

We know Qt is the best development framework out there and we want to make sure that all developers in all corners of the world are able to easily and inexpensively get their hands on it. That is why we have designed the Qt Mobile Edition – Qt everywhere for everyone. You can easily develop, deploy and host your mobile app for the leading mobile OSs with one convenient package and at the same time avoid any legal missteps. So, all you have to focus on is creating your app and you can rest assured it will be cross-platform, conveniently hosted and easily uploaded to the leading stores.

Qt Mobile Edition will be available later this year following the release of the next major update to the framework, Qt 5.2, in December.

Don’t fear. We will provide a free trial version of the Qt Mobile Edition to make sure you have the time to evaluate just how great it is before you purchase.
