Learn and share best practices for embedded, mobile and desktop development at Qt’s flagship conference in Boston and Berlin.

Whether you are a businessperson, executive, technical expert, manager or developer, the annual Qt World Summit is packed full of intriguing things for everyone.

During Qt World Summit 2018, business leaders, software developers, project managers and other influential members of the Qt global community will discuss the latest software development trends, market opportunities, technological advancements and customer success stories. Qt experts from across the globe – spanning 70 industries – will share insights into Qt’s technology and vibrant ecosystem, discuss best practices and new ways of working, and explain how Qt can help organizations achieve a superior user experience and a faster time-to-market with tools that make work fun and easy for both designers and developers.

This year, the Qt World Summit is honored to present the following keynote speakers:
