Peter WinstonWelcome to ICS' February Newsletter

This month’s issue is jam-packed with content! From a new live webinar to help you develop using Qt on the low-cost Raspberry Pi to a new in-person course on user experience design for embedded devices (plus additional sessions on OpenGL and programming with Qt for embedded devices), we have your Qt-related training needs covered.

You’ll also find an insightful article detailing our pipelining product development approach from a UX perspective and a technical piece on Qt 5.10’s QRandomGenerator. This issue also wraps up our popular Developer’s Bag of Tricks series, with the final two installments focusing on GammaRay and integrated development environments.

And if that’s not enough to keep you busy, you can check out the blog IoT Device Security is Being Seriously Neglected written by The Aberdeen Group (and yes, quoting yours truly).

Happy reading! And, as always, if you find this information valuable please share it with your colleagues.

Peter Winston, CEO, ICS
