Qt training


Qt is a cross-platform modular application framework which includes a class-library and tools and is widely used in software development. Using this framework one can develop applications for Linux desktop as well as for a variety of mobile platforms such as Symbian, Maemo, MeeGo. Qt is fast to learn and easy to use.

A two-day hands-on training is for everyone to get acquainted with this framework and begin to develop applications. The course is indented for beginners but hopefully will also be useful for advanced developers.

Training course dates and place

Training will be held on 25-26 April 2011. Place: Room 203 of IT-Park of PetrSU, Lenin str. 31.
