Bedford, MA April 22, 2008Integrated Computer Solutions (ICS) today launched the ICSNetwork, an online training and resource center produced for Qt® developers. The new network will release a series of recorded webcasts focused on teaching advanced techniques for developing with Qt.

A few of the topics to be featured on future ICSNetwork webcasts include:

The ICSNetwork is sponsored by Prentice Hall Professional, publishers of several essential Qt technical books including "An Introduction to Design Patterns in C++ with Qt 4", by Alan and Paul Ezust, "C++ GUI Programming with Qt 4, Second Edition", by Jasmin Blanchette and Mark Summerfield, and "Rapid GUI Programming with Python and Qt", by Mark Summerfield.
