Maybe your company will pay to send you?) This week-long hands-on workshop in Silicon Valley M-F July 11-15 will teach you how to use Qt to develop an elegant and efficient touchscreen user experience using the Raspberry Pi as your development platform. Hardware is included: you walk off with a Raspberry Pi and a Pi-compatible touchscreen, fully equipped and configured with a touch interface development platform to continue your development after the workshop. WHY THIS WORKSHOP MATTERS: It’s difficult to create the fluid and snappy user interface and user experience (UX/UI) people expect these days, especially on resource-constrained hardware. Qt efficiently provides high-end graphics and I/O capability to the RPi and other SoCs. The skills, tips, and tricks you’ll learn in this workshop are applicable to all sorts of embedded devices and other embedded micro controller platforms.
