Abstract: 

This talk will give an introduction to how mobile market trends can become reality with Qt and what is the role of mobile for Qt and for existing desktop/embedded Qt developers.

Mobile platforms are not only relevant for mobile consumer apps but are also the future direction for existing desktop and embedded systems--the multi-screen applications. Market trends such as Enterprise Mobility and Internet of Things require application developers and device vendors to target mobile platforms.

Qt can be used to create and deploy graphically pleasing, robust and native and/or hybrid applications across various form factors on at least 14 leading operating systems: desktop, embedded and mobile. This session will present an overview of the latest Qt mobile ports (Android, iOS, WinRT), highlight how you can integrate mobile into your cross-platform strategy with Qt and make your multi-screen and multi-platform product or device a reality. It will give a brief live coding session demonstrating toolchain installation and deployment for Android and iOS development. As the connected multi-creen applications often require a cloud backend, the session will also touch upon Qt Cloud Services offering.
