Hello Fall!

As the leaves begin to turn brilliant reds and oranges, we’re busier than ever getting ready for Qt World Summit Online, where I’ll be presenting a talk on Lessons Learned from Building 100+ C++/Qt/QML Devices. We’re also polishing our featured webinar, presented on October 15 in association with Gestoos, on designing gesture-based applications with Qt.

And a reminder: we also have a live webinar tomorrow, this one on medical robotics with our partners Boston Engineering and Energid. Don’t miss it! And keep reading for more details on our upcoming presentation at The Virtual MedTech Conference 2020. Details and registration links are inside this issue.

You’ll also find an article on designing scientific software, a review of three presentations at KDE Akademy 2020, the last installment in our Creating QML Controls From Scratch series, and details on industry events AMD Summit and UXPA Boston 19th Annual User Experience Conference. We’ll have virtual booths at both events.
