About

Qt 5.7 is an application development framework that provides a great user experience and develops full-capability applications with Qt Widgets, QML, and even Qt 3D.

This book will address challenges in successfully developing cross-platform applications with the Qt framework. Cross-platform development needs a well-organized project. Using this book, you will have a better understanding of the Qt framework and the tools to resolve serious issues such as linking, debugging, and multithreading. Your journey will start with the new Qt 5 features.

Then you will explore different platforms and learn to tame them. Every chapter along the way is a logical step that you must take to master Qt. The journey will end in an application that has been tested and is ready to be shipped.

Features
  • Unleash the power of Qt 5 with C++14
  • Integrate useful third-party libraries such as OpenCV
  • Package and deploy your application on multiple platforms

Guillaume Lazar

Guillaume Lazar is a software engineer living in France, near Paris. He has worked in different companies, from start-ups to multinationals, for the last 10 years. He took the opportunity to observe and learn many team organizations and technologies.

In 2014, he founded his own software development company at the age of 27. The current hierarchical organization that applies to most companies seems obsolete to him. With his own company, he wants to try a different approach.

Although he defines himself as a Qt framework lover, he likes to mix different technologies and platforms. He also spends time on game development, machine learning, and electronics, because "things" become "alive".

Robin Penea has been working in the software industry for a more than a decade. He worked in start-ups and large companies with many technologies that ranged from embedded software to web development. Armed with this experience, he wrote the Mastering Qt 5 book to spread what he loves the most about the programming craft: proper design and quality code. The teaching bug has bitten him, and he continues to share what he learned online using videos. When he is not tinkering with some new technology, he is either on a wall, rock-climbing, or playing music on his piano. You can reach him via Twitter @synapticrob.
