Munich hosts the first event, October 24-26, followed by San Francisco, November 29 – December 1. We also plan for regional events in Beijing and Tokyo in December – more details and cities to come.
In the last weeks, positive news about the future of Qt have been released:
- Qt will be a core component in the Nokia strategy to bring apps to the next billion mobile phones
- Nokia plans to bring up to 10 new Qt-powered Symbian based devices in the coming 12 months.
- the fact that Nokia users generate more than six million downloads from Ovi Store every day (with an increasing amount of Qt apps) demonstrates the potential that Nokia offers to developers like you.
- the Nokia N9 – the hottest Qt-powered Linux device (my personal opinion) of all Qt-powered devices released to date – is coming soon
Nokia is committed to Qt, and being a skilled and certified Qt developer offers additional opportunities for you now and in the years to come.
Qt Developer Days is also very much about all industries’ use of Qt and is the key place to learn about Qt and meet other Qt enthusiasts. The use of Qt is moving full steam ahead and the successful use of Qt in various types of desktop and embedded projects in multiple industries continues.
Already at Qt Developer Days last year we noticed a strong interest in embedded Linux developments with a focus on more advanced Qt based GUIs. I expect this trend will continue. With the inclusion of Qt in Ubuntu 11.10, Qt Developer Days will also be interesting to Ubuntu app and device UI developers in addition to those developers using Qt shipped in other open source Linux distro’s such as Debian, Fedora, Mandriva (in Brazil), openSUSE, Red Flag (in China), Red Hat as well as ALT (in Russia) to mention a few.
Naturally, Qt Developer Days 2011 offers:
- Time with experienced Qt engineers and Qt partners to answer your head-scratching development issues for Qt on desktop, embedded and mobile
- Qt Training day to get up-to-speed with Qt, quickly
- 50+ technical sessions
- Qt-in-use case study sessions
- Partner and Qt Ambassador exhibition with Qt apps and Qt-powered devices
I am looking forward to seeing you at the events!
Director, Qt Ecosystem
