By: Brad

So now that you know what the heck Qt Quick is you want to learn the basic of how to get starting using it. Well hopefully I can help you with that so your not stumbling around in the dark like I was. Note this tutorial will be on the latest version of Qt at the time of writing which was Qt 5.2.

This Qt Quick 101 tutorial will walk you though the following:


My interest in computer programming started back in high school and Software Development has remained a hobby of mine ever since. I graduated as a Computer Engineering Technologist and have been working as a Software Developer for many years. I believe that software is crafted; understanding that how it is done is as important as getting it done. I enjoy the aesthetics in crafting elegant solutions to complex problems and revel in the knowledge that my code is maintainable and thus, will have longevity. I hold the designation Certified Technician (C.Tech.) with the Ontario Association of Computer Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT), have been certified as a Professional Scrum Master level 1 (PSM I) and as a Professional Scrum Developer level 1 (PSD I) by as well as designated as an Officially Certified Qt Developer by the Qt Company.
