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?
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 http://doc.qt.io/
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
Course - FAQ
What is QtQuick/QML?
Qt Quick is a modern user interface technology that separates the declarative UI design and the imperative programming logic. Instead of the traditional C++ APIs of Qt, the presentation layer of the application is written with a Qt-specific declarative language called QML in the front for beautiful, modern touch-based User Experiences.
What is advantage of using QtQuick/QML?
Declaring UI layouts with QML is highly productive and does not require hardcore programming skills making it a common language for both designers and developers. High abstraction level and super-quick workflow enable rapid prototyping of the UI.
- Optimized for touch-based, animated mobile Uis.
- Includes a set of graphical and behavioral building blocks: QML Elements.
- No C++ knowledge required for UI creation, but can be extended with C++.
- Intuitive User Interfaces
- Rapid Prototyping and Production
- Easy Deployment
- Enable designer and developers to work on the same sources
How should I start learning QtQuick/QML?
Emertxe will provides an overview of QML and Qt Quick technology with regards to developing feature-rich applications that you can deploy onto various desktop platforms. The focus is on Qt Quick and how to use it efficiently for writing entire applications without using C++. It guides you step-by-step from the initial development environment set-up to project creation to a ready-to-deploy application.
There are several chapters consisting of multiple steps. Each step describes specific features of the application, the development approach and the detailed QML code used. The application covers various aspects such as advanced UI concepts including animations and database storage usage for application logic.
Is Qt open source?
Yes, but commercial version also available.
Why two versions? Commercial and open source.
Only difference is the licensing. As a rule of thumb, if you are coding a free software application, you don’t need to pay any license. If you are coding a proprietary software which you want to sell for money, you need to use commercial version.
As we know Qt is an open-source, if you change anything in Qt-core or any Qt-library must be shared. Most people either just consume the Qt library and don’t change it, or any changes they might make are so basic that they don’t mind them being shared. In that case open-source is enough.
It won’t makes any difference to a developer who just wants to use Qt as a library, unmodified, for general things like GUI, algorithms, etc.
For better clarification you must read GPL and LGPL license documentation.
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.
