Qt 5 at the MeeGo Conference

Published on Friday May 13, 2011 by Thiago Macieira in Qt Lighthouse MeeGo | Comments

On Monday, when he exposed his thoughts about Qt 5, Lars mentioned that he would be at the MeeGo Conference in San Francisco later this month. At the time, he hadn't yet submitted his session proposal.

I'm happy to announce that the program committee has decided to accept his submission, as well as the BoF session I proposed to plan for Qt 5. If you're coming to the MeeGo Conference or if you'll be in the San Francisco area then, come join us for the first discussion on how to get a Qt 5 release in a year's time.

Another interesting session I plan on attending in San Francisco will be the one on using Wayland for the MeeGo Tablet, by Kristian Høgsberg and Liu Xinyun. These two are just a few examples of new sessions that the program committee has accepted as part of the "Late Breaking News", improving even more the program which was already great.

We have several trolls presenting at the event:

On the second day, there's a full track on developing applications using Qt Quick, in parallel to a full-day track on how to use the SDK for creating and deploying applications.

Other talks I would like to see:

I clearly won't be able to see all the talks... In Dublin, I spent most of my time introducing people to other people and I don't expect San Francisco to be any different. Unlike Dublin, I don't expect to have to walk too far between rooms, but there will be a fair bit of going up and down stairs.

Still, I think we have a great line-up of talks. I'm hoping this will please everyone in the audience. At the program committee, we spent a great deal of time reading every single submission and trying to make a conference for everyone in the MeeGo community.

Now, I think I should get started on my presentation. The email I received on Wednesday says I should upload it by the end of today in San Francisco (9 am tomorrow my time).

Happy Friday 13th!
