Peter WinstonWelcome to ICS' November Newsletter

I’m just returning from another fantastic Qt World Summit where it was great to catch up with old friends and meet so many people who are building revolutionary products with Qt. Look for a full recap in our next issue.

Since many of our readers have requested more QML resources, this month we’re sharing QML-related content in a variety of formats, including a live webinar, a free training course, and an installment of our extensive Creating QML Controls From Scratch blog series.

Beyond QML, this month’s issue also closes out our series on GPIO programming, offers insight for developers making the transition from desktop or mobile to embedded, and delivers our whitepaper on the benefits of UX design. And, of course, we’re sharing our latest articles to appear in industry publications. There’s a piece in Design News on medical device development from our Director of Medical Programs, and an article on software product development risks from yours truly, published in Software Development Times.

That should keep you busy!
