Qt for Nokia – get trained
I was writing about Qt few times ago, with some examples how to use it on N900. Apart from that it’s framework to be used with more Nokia mobiles like N8. Because Nokia ties its future with Qt I think it’s good idea to get familiar with this technology, because it may be future for Ovi by Nokia and many more. So let’s think about possibilities.
First of all you can attend one of many events related to Qt, try googling a bit more to find one in your area. If it’s organised by Nokia you can even join a contest, my work collegues did some time ago and it appears to be very good opportunity to show yourself as good developer, team leader or at least show your ideas to wider audience. First of it I can think of is Innovation Contest, just check it.
Second of all trainings, it seems like Qt trainings are happening everywhere around, so you can have a bit easier beginning. You can try the one related to Innovations Contest or for example well tested Qt Essentials Training and certification system.
Finally, when Qt went Open Source it’s developing quite nicely giving more and more possibilities, not only for mobile devices but also for desktop, with a bit of luck you can create something used on desktop computers, phones, laptops, tablets and many more. Current Qt status gives quite good idea of expansion it has made last few yars, from small visualisation library to complete framework for almost every digital device around. I think it’s really nice to at least try.
