Training Options

3 day training courses (Monday, November 4th- Wednesday, November 6th)
Introduction to Qt Get an in-depth introduction to Qt Programming with this hands-on Qt 5-based training. The course will focus on Qt essentials for desktop development, including fundamentals, core classes, widgets, painting and styling, paint application, dialogs, Qt Designer and more. Students will leave the course with a working knowledge of the capabilities of Qt and a solid start to programming with Qt. A working knowledge of C++ programming and a basic knowledge of GUI programming are required.
Introducing Qt Quick and QML This hands-on on course introduces the major elements of a QtQuick/QML application. Topics to be covered include: graphical and text elements for user interfaces, interaction with keyboard or mouse, states, transitions, and animations, presenting data, dynamic creation of components, modules, and integration of QML with C++. The basic concepts will be covered on Monday and Tuesday and then the class will join the Effective QML training session for more advanced discussion on Wednesday. This course requires at least a basic understanding of Qt and QObjects.

 

1 day training courses (Wednesday, November 6th)
Introduction to OpenGL and Qt 5 This one day course will present an introduction to 3D programming with OpenGL and Qt. It will cover general 3D and OpenGL concepts and the basics of writing pure OpenGL programs. It will review the various Qt classes supporting OpenGL including the older QGL* classes and the newer QOpenGL* classes. It will discuss writing shaders and using particles. The use of ANGLE on Windows platforms will be covered as well as OpenGL/ES on embedded systems. There will be some coverage of the optional Qt3D add-on module. The scope will be Qt version 5 using both C++ and QML. Students should be familiar with the basics of Qt and QML but do not need prior experience with OpenGL.
Effective QML
This one day course will focus on several of the more complex areas of QML and present tips, tricks, best practices, and common areas of confusion and error. It will be based on real-world experience developing customer applications for mobile, embedded, and desktop. The following major topics will be covered:
  • Anchors
  • Integrating C++ and QML
  • Data Models and Views
  • Advanced Anchors
  • QML Language Scope
  • Keyboard Input Handling
  • Lessons learned from real-world QML projects
The course is for developers who are already familiar with the basic concepts of Qt and QML and want to expand their knowledge to the next level
Qt GUI Test Development with Squish Testing the user interface of today’s applications is a very complex and error-prone task. Automating this task is challenging, but approached correctly very rewarding. Squish is the leading cross-platform/cross-technology GUI test automation tool for functional GUI regression tests and is the tool of choice in a Qt environment. This course will introduce Squish and guide you through tailoring it to your own application's architecture. A basic knowledge of Qt is helpful but not required for this course. Managers and testers are also welcome.
Qt on Android Android is the fastest growing mobile and embedded platform and one of the newest to be officially supported by Qt with the 5.1 release. This one day course will get you started developing with Qt on Android. It will cover the basics of getting the development environment set up and building, deploying, and running your first application. The material will cover developing with both C++ and QML code. It will cover the current capabilities and limitations of the Qt port to Android as well as numerous tips, tricks, and common problems to avoid. It will cover cross-platform development for mobile and embedded devices with Qt and mention areas of future work including Qt 5.2. The course will include some hands-on labs using Qt and Qt Creator and the simulator that comes with the Android SDK. Students should have some experience with Qt on the desktop or other platform. Prior experience with Android is not required nor is an Android device.
Qt for Embedded Development

This is a Qt5-based training course covering Qt Essentials and QML, targeted to anyone interested in SW development using Qt. The course covers the essentials of using Qt in embedded platforms, though all the programming labs are written using Qt desktop targets. This includes embedded configuration, device settings, on target debugging, QPA plugin, tool chains and Boot to Qt—the latest Digia offering to save costs and dramatically improve time to market on embedded software development. Qt on embedded training includes experienced instructor-led training with numerous hands-on programming exercises (50% lectures – 50% hands-ons), Qt roadmap update and Qt training material by Digia. For the full workshop experience, prerequisites for the course include good command of C++ programming language and a laptop.
