Qt developer days SF

    The SF event have a session from RIM. Besides there are sessions on Qt for Android and iOs. Qt on these platforms mean Qt will rule. There is a possibility that MS will use the new win8 kernel and WinRT for Windows phone aswell. Though that is a rumor now, there is a serious possibility that it will happen. WinRT (Windows Runtime) supports c++ and will be helpful for a Qt port. I think a partial port for Win8 already exists.



  • I would certainly want to watch the recordings for those! I am not going to make it SF myself, but I was lucky enough to be able to be there in Munich last month.



  • Searching for information on Qt dev days SF, I just got this link.

    Lot of good things for Qt. As expected, Qt for BBX, Android and iOS. I guess the full details will be available here in coming days right ? Towards the end of the page, there is reference to possibility of Qt on Windows phone. That sounds good. In the page, it is said that Nokia confirmed that next billion is not based on S40 (Nokia OS). The possibility of Windows phone for next billion makes me a bit disppointed as Linux lover. I still hope it would be Linux. Qt on Raspberry Pi sounds good too. So Qt seems poised for a strong comeback on Mobile.

    AFAIK there is no official announcement about Qt on WP7 as often discussed here. I don't think that MS will open WP7 just to enable Nokia to put Qt there.



  • The following words from the page caught my interest.
    " Windows Phone is likely to support Qt before long. There were plenty of hints and rumors of that at Dev Days. ".

    Yes, it has been said lot of times that there won't be a port Qt on Wp7. But it seems people are still expecting it to happen sooner or later.

    The point is: Who said that? An official MS or Nokia member?
    The writer said, he suspects WP to be the base for the next million.
    What I know is WP7 is used for, so called, high end smartphones. No one said officially, that it will be the base for the rest.



  • Forget about the WP7 port. What I really wanted to know is whether the material from DEV days will be available here in coming days, so that I can read / watch them myself instead of reading other's impressions.

    Yes, it will come - as with the previous DevDays too.
