Qt Knowledge Drop - September

As we enter the tail-end of Summer, everything can start to look a little bleak. On the Qt front however, we're happy to say that things are just about to heat up. This challenging year has caused us to heavily adapt our content plans, redirecting our focus from physical events to producing as much helpful and informative online content for our community as possible. Most of which is just about to come to fruition.

So here's a little forecast to help you ride the heatwave. Find out exactly where and when to pick the ripest pieces of content for you.

Qt World Summit 2020

Qt World Summit ONLINE (October 22)

Qt World Summit events are the pinnacle of Qt gatherings. Large scale venues have been used to bring the community together in locations such as Berlin, Boston and Tokyo. 2020's location was set to be in Palm Springs, California, and many of us already had our sunglasses and sunscreen packed.

The course of events of the year, however, led to the summit being no longer feasible in its traditional format. A strong push was made by the team to consider how we could replicate the positive aspects of QtWS, without running a safety risk for our attendees and staff.

Thanks to the field events team at Qt, we have been able to organize a solution that not only retains the networking, learning, and social opportunities, but also brings additional benefits. 

Qt World Summit ONLINE, will include a 3D rendered Palm Springs, complete with a plane, pool, and conference center, built with Unreal Engine technology. Attendees will be able to create their own avatar to view keynotes and technical talks 'in person', as well as partake in Q&A sessions, live chats, and more. 

Better yet, the online format has allowed us, for the first time, to offer free access to the event. Hopefully, this way, a much larger portion of the community can attend, who might otherwise have been hindered by ticket costs and travel.

If you would like to register for a free ticket, register here. There is also the possibility of purchasing a premium ticket for a small fee. This option will allow you to watch the catalog of talks straight after the event, on-demand, at your own pace. Not to mention, you will also receive a swanky Qt t-shirt in the post.
