Qt DevDays 2009 - Munich

I have not blogged much about what I work with or do and that's on purpose.  Sometimes I am not allowed to tell and mostly I think you would not find it interesting.  However, I wanna share with you from Qt Developer Days #qtdd09 in Munich, which was an amazing event.

 

Not only is Qt a decent Developer tool for making desktop apps, but joining forces with Nokia, ex-Trolltech is getting far more traction as well. As a result of last week's devdays but also beta-release of Qt 4.6, one of my favorite online newsletter had this article last week.

 

But being at DevDays Europe is an amazing experience. Third year now for me and it keeps blowing my mind off.  This year an amazing 660 delegates + the 80+ Nokians that attended/helped out.

 

The DevDays often comes with some new stuff.  This year, the former Trolltech cheif engineer, Matthias Ettrich, launched QML in his keynote as the future of portable user interfaces.  An external review seems quite upbeat about QML Here is a demo

 

 

New for the year was Qt in Use that highlight what our partners and customers were doing with Qt. A few examples:

- Red Flag's incorporate of Qt SDK for their Linux Distro that has 50% of the market in China

- Commercial Open Source cases from Ogre, VideoLAN and KitWare

- TI's use of Beagle and Qt

- Pascal Lauria from Xandros reviewed how the first ever Netbook was built using Qt

- Digia showed how Qt can be used on Symbian

- etc etc.

 

Overall, it is not difficult to see that the future is bright when being at DevDays.  A hard-core techie crowd that uses, improves and helps in making Qt better. Now, with the support of Windows 7, Symbian and Maemo. And with QML, Qt Creator and a nicer IDE and later integrating cWRT, Nokia do have a winner and should be able to capatilize for the next couple of years.

 

There are of course alternatives to Qt - HTML5 (limited but still), Adobe Air, Microsoft Silverlight and not to forget, Java but I would think that Service Providers (be it fixed or wireless) should take a serious look at how to incorporate a Qt-based services/application framework for them to address any sort of device, not just mobile phones.

Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throug...
Over the course of two days, in addition to insightful conversations and presentations delving into the industry's current pressing challenges, there was considerable buzz about digital transformation and how it is enabling global enterprises to accelerate business growth. Blockchain has been a term that people hear but don't quite understand. The most common myths about blockchain include the assumption that it is private, or that there is only one blockchain, and the idea that blockchain is...
Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...
The term "digital transformation" (DX) is being used by everyone for just about any company initiative that involves technology, the web, ecommerce, software, or even customer experience. While the term has certainly turned into a buzzword with a lot of hype, the transition to a more connected, digital world is real and comes with real challenges. In his opening keynote, Four Essentials To Become DX Hero Status Now, Jonathan Hoppe, Co-Founder and CTO of Total Uptime Technologies, shared that ...

Never mind that we might not know what the future holds for cryptocurrencies and how much values will fluctuate or even how the process of mining a coin could cost as much as the value of the coin itself - cryptocurrency mining is a hot industry and shows no signs of slowing down. However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
