Introduction to Qt

Lecture by Alexander Færøy at The Camp in Bregninge, Denmark on July 26, 2010.

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.
