Description de l’éditeur

Learn the complete Qt ecosystem and its tools and build UIs for mobile and desktop applications

Key Features
Unleash the power of the latest Qt 5.9 with C++14Easily compile, run, and debug your applications from the powerful Qt Creator IDEBuild multi-platform projects that target Android, iOS, Windows, MacOS, Linux, and more
Book Description

Qt 5.9 is an application development framework that provides a great user experience and develops full-capability applications with Qt Widgets, QML, and even Qt 3D. This learning path demonstrates the power and flexibility of the Qt framework for desktop application development and shows how you can write an application once and deploy it to multiple operating systems. It will address all the challenges while developing cross-platform applications with the Qt framework.

This course will give you a better understanding of the Qt framework and tools to resolve serious issues such as linking, debugging, and multithreading. It will also upskill you by explaining how to create a to-do-style app and taking you through all the stages in building a successful project. You will build a suite of apps; while developing these apps, you’ll deepen your knowledge of Qt Quick's layout systems, and see Qt 3D and widgets in action. The next project will be in the industrial and agricultural sectors: making sense of sensor data via a monitoring system. Your apps should run seamlessly across devices and operating systems such as Android, iOS, Windows, or Mac, and be cost-effective by integrating with existing web technologies. You take the role of lead developer and prototype a monitoring system. In doing so, you’ll get to know Qt's Bluetooth and HTTP APIs, as well as the Charts and Web Engine UI modules. These projects will help you gain a holistic view of the Qt framework.

Who this book is for

This book will appeal to developers and programmers who would like to build GUI-based applications. Knowledge of C++ is necessary and a basic familiarity with Qt would be helpful.
Nicholas Sherriff (Nick) spent the majority of his career at a major utility company in the UK, working predominantly on the Microsoft Windows platform with C#, ASP.NET, and SQL Server. While leading the native application development function there, he experimented with C++ before eventually discovering Qt, utilizing it on a major green-field project serving several thousand users. He currently works for a communications recording software house. At home, Nick enjoys music, video games, and half-hearted calisthenics. Guillaume Lazar is a software engineer living near Paris in France. He has worked for different companies, from startups to multinationals, for the last 7 years. He took the opportunity to observe and learn from many team organizations and technologies. He eventually founded his own software development company, NeuronalMotion, at the age of 27 with his friend Robin Penea in 2014. Information about it and its open source projects can be found on the company's website: NeuronalMotion. NeuronalMotion represents to Guillaume "a different way of working." The current hierarchical organization that applies to most companies seems obsolete to him. With his own company, he wants to try something different, where each employee will be autonomous. Although he defines himself as a Qt framework lover, he likes to mix different technologies and platforms. He also spends time on game development, machine learning, and electronics, because "things" become "alive." Robin Penea is a software engineer living in France. He has worked for several companies over the last 7 years, on many different technologies (ranging from server application development to embedded programming). He founded NeuronalMotion with Guillaume Lazar in 2014 to implement his vision of entrepreneurship and project development. He aims to achieve a self-organized company. More information is available at: NeuronalMotion. Besides developing with Qt, he likes to tinker with the Android AOSP framework, learn new programming language paradigms, and discover how to interweave technology with real life. Marco Piccolino is a consultant, technical trainer and speaker developing Qt apps for businesses and consumers on a daily basis. He is the founder of the QtMob Slack chat, a community of Qt application developers with a focus on mobile, resource sharing and problem solving. Marco's main professional interests include application architecture, test-driven development, speech and language technologies, and everything Qt.
