Abstract

In this world of applications and web, everyone wants to have one on their name be it for android, ios, Windows and Linux. But we are switching to Cross-platform frameworks for the same. Qt is one such cross-platform framework that provides assistance to developers to make their applications running on all platforms. The talk is aimed on the magic that Qt Quick can create with its animations and features and how I used it in my contribution to GCompris which is a part of the KDE educational suite.
