Qt Platform - FAQ

What is Qt?

Qt is a cross-platform GUI application development framework for various hardware and software platforms (E.g. desktop, embedded and mobile). It is supported in all major platforms like Linux, OS X, Windows, VxWorks, QNX, Android, iOS, Black-Berry, Sailfish OS and others. Qt is not a programming language on its own. It is a framework written in C++. You write the code once and make binaries for all platforms with a little or no change in the code.

Why I choose Qt over Android(Java)?

Android also very popular in embedded systems. But to develop android applications we need to learn Java. Java is an excellent language, but for Android mobile development, C++ has a few advantages. These include a smaller memory footprint, as C++ is nearer the metal and has no garbage collection. C++ is a superset of C and should compile virtually all C programs, so you could reuse C software. If you’re an experienced C++ developer who wants to get into Android development, using Qt is a better choice.

Who can learn Qt?

Qt is primarily aimed for Application developers who can come any any of the categories.

  • Programmers developing applications for desktops, embedded devices and/or targeting multiple platforms – Windows, UNIX and Mac will greatly benefit from this training.
  • Beginners: Who knows C++ and interested to learn GUI frameworks

How should I start learning Qt?

Qt is an application development framework based on C++. Traditionally, C++ is the major programming language used to develop with Qt. Qt has been supporting script-based declarative programming with QML. QML is very easy to understand for anybody who is familiar with JavaScript as well as for all other developers who are familiar the basics of object oriented programming and have worked with other scripting languages.

One of the most popular ways of discovering new technologies is to walk through examples. Qt provides a large selection of examples and demos which are available in source code (check demos and examples directories in your installation). Most of the examples and demos are pre-compiled and integrated into the Examples and Demos Launcher.

At some point you should take some time to walk through the Qt technology guides and overviews provided in Qt documentation. Qt is simple to use, but you should have a basic understanding of the key concepts behind Qt to reveal its full power. There is a large selection of documents that are sorted into the

What are the product domains where Qt is extensively built?

  • Anti-virus softwares
  • Audio/video applications
  • Email clients
  • Graphical editors
  • Audio/video/chat/voip clients applications
  • UI (KDE & Unity)
  • Web browsers
  • Text editors
  • Virtual computer softwares

Qt Project & Support - FAQ

What about Qt online support?

The Qt Company support team works hand-in-hand with Qt R&D developers and is committed to ensure the success of your project. We provide our commercial customers with exceptional support and guidance on the use of Qt APIs, functions, methods and programming techniques for all major platforms.

There are lots of forums and communities available to support you

What about the Qt documentation?

Compared to other frameworks, Qt has an extensive documentation support and a collection of code samples and tutorials are provided with Qt to help new users get started with Qt development. These documents cover a range of topics, from basic use of widgets to step-by-step tutorials that show how an application is put together.

How learning Qt can enhance my career growth?

Moreover as a GUI application framework, it is a cross-platform framework. As an embedded or non-embedded engineer it’s always worth learning Qt. For the next several years – there will always be a niche market for Qt developers.  And there will be a demand for a few really good Qt developers for a very long time.
