The book "C++ GUI Programming With Qt 4", by jasmin and Mark. Is it for a beginner?



  • Hi all,

    Everyone says that the book, "C++ GUI Programming with Qt 4" by Jasmin Blanchette and Marx Summerfield is very good for beginners. But the book is talking about compiling all the projects using qmake.

    I tried to follow this book, but struggling to compile the codes as given by this book using qmake, despite my best efforts to follow all the steps given in the qmake manual. It is stopping at make stage with, some error for which I could not get answers on any blog or website. (Read the thread "qmake reports multiple targets and stops" in General and Desktop forum to know this problem)

    My question is , Is there a suitable book a beginner?.

    One problem is that I am running on Qt 5.1.0 and all the books are talking about Qt4.

    Thanks in advance for the answers

    I've read this book myself and didn't have such problems. i also found it well understandable. But sure there might be things which are not for everybody.

    Another good book in my opinion is "Foundations of Qt Development".

    Well it's not that surprising as the book title already says ;)
    AFAIK there are no books with target Qt 5 yet...only online resources.



  • Sir,

    Could you please give me a solution to the problem I am facing with qmake and make. If I can get the solution, I will be forced to believe that it is a good book.

    I have no complaints about the language and narration of the book.

    Beginner does not expect great things from a book, his/her expectation is get started at the earliest.
