December 2018

Peter WinstonWelcome to ICS' December Newsletter

As December comes to a close, we're taking a look back at 2018 -- a big year for both Integrated Computer Solutions (ICS) and the Qt ecosystem. For ICS, the big news was the launch of our product-interface design division Boston UX, which you can read about here. Regarding the Qt ecosystem, you can explore milestones, new releases and helpful new features in this issue.

Also this month, you can get the latest version of our QML Quick Reference, which has been fully updated, as well as tips for creating interactive games. You also can learn about the rise of wearable tech, register for our February CMake webinar, and enroll in our training course UX Design for Embedded Devices.

This has been a productive and positive year at ICS thanks to our many loyal customers, partners and employees -- and we anticipate 2019 will be even better!

Happy holidays from the ICS family to yours.
