Peter WinstonWelcome to ICS' October Newsletter

Happy Halloween! 🎃

We’ve been busy creating virtual training programs, webinars and other informative content to keep your skills on the leading edge. In this issue, you can find details on our lab-focused virtual training course Building an Embedded Application with Qt, which begins Nov. 10. You can also check out our latest live webinar, offered in tandem with our partner Keitaro, on Docker and Kubernetes. This tech paves the way for running federated, scalable, and redundant systems on the Cloud and on the Edge, and helps speed innovation.

​​​​We also have for you a new technical ebook, Creating QML Controls From Scratch, as well as blogs on scientific software design, tips for developing safer medical devices, and hardware’s impact on our perception of color. And if you missed our popular webinars Optimizing Usability and Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) in Medical Robotics and Creating Touchless HMIs Using Computer Vision for Gesture Interaction, you can now watch them on-demand.

Virtual Training: Building an Embedded Application with Qt

Don’t let the pandemic negatively impact your professional development. Take advantage of ICS’ lab-focused virtual training beginning on Nov. 10. You'll gain a thorough understanding of QML and the Qt API and create an application from an empty screen to a full graphic user interface. Register Here >>

Creating QML Controls From Scratch

eBook: Creating QML Controls From Scratch

QML provides a powerful and flexible framework for developing user interfaces (UI). The basic elements provided are low level, so you typically need to build up the components of your UI into widget-like controls. Creating a set of common QML controls can greatly reduce the overall development effort of your project. Download Now >>
