This 5-day course focuses on developing modern applications for embedded systems and touchscreens using Qt and QtQuick. The class utilizes real development boards with touchscreens for each participant and introduces students to working with embedded touchscreen systems. Further, fundamentals of programming with Qt will be covered to give participants a thorough understanding of the underlying ideas of QML and QtQuick. Efficient and robust design of applications for touchscreen enabled devices utilizing the latest QtQuick techniques is the central focus of this class. As such, architectural considerations for creating applications consisting of beautiful and highly responsive presentation layers, backed by solid back-end implementations are important learning goals for participants.
In the course, we will use the embedded system on modules and carrier boards from Toradex, a long term Qt partner. The Aster carrier board is compatible with the complete range of Colibri Modules which allows easy scaling of performance. We will use the Colibri iMX6 DL featuring the NXP® i.MX 6 SoC. Creating a prototype with a Toradex Module is very simple, but even better is you can use the exact same module in volume production, including demanding embedded applications.

- Working knowledge of C++ programming
- Basic knowledge of GUI programming
- Previous Qt experience is not required
After the class, you may keep the Toradex Aster carrier board and Waveshare touchscreen for a discounted fee of $159. This is optional and we will loan you a touchscreen and board at no extra charge if you prefer.
