Welcome to ICS' June Newsletter

Summer is in full swing and ICS has been ​as ​busy as ever with medical, security​, IVI ​and Industrial IoT projects. The Qt community has been busy too, with recent releases of Qt Creator ​4.3.0 and Qt 5.9.0 which will be a long term support release and supported for three years. To help you make the most of Qt we’re presenting ​a Best Practices in Qt Quick/QML summer ​webinar ​series,​ as well as a special webinar on QML geared toward designers. ​Next month I’ll share ICS’ take on the benefits of Qt Commercial.​

We hope you ​find our June issue — which is also packed with articles on UX and development best practices — informative. If so, please share it with your colleagues!
