Introduction to Qt
This lecture was a short introduction to a workshop on the Qt C++ framework.
The goal of the workshop was to build a portable GUI application that would
fetch weather information from a remote REST API and display it. We introduced
the participants to the concept of Qt’s signals and slots, the main loop, and
how to use the
QNetworkAccessManager API for fetching remote content.
Since most people attending were inexperienced with C++, the slides also contain a concise primer to the syntax of C++.
I have unfortunately lost the example source code for this workshop.
