Abstract

QML is often perceived as an efficient way to quickly realize beautiful, fluid user interfaces, as long as those interfaces are simple and limited. However, writing full-featured applications in QML that expose powerful feature sets is possible with the suitable techniques in hand. This presentation will demonstrate how to approach QML for complex applications covering the use of Qt Components, QML packages, data retrieval techniques, device appropriateness and more. Real-world applications will also be used to demonstrate these techniques live.
