    Porting a Large Desktop CAD Application to Qt

    BricsCAD is a cross-platform desktop (linux/mac/windows) CAD application with over 20 years of history and a rapidly accelerating pace of development. A little over two years ago, they decided to replace their UI framework (wxWidgets + MFC on windows) with Qt/Qml (+ MFC on windows). With initial estimates of complete conversion totaling 50 dev-years of work, it was clear that this is was undertaking of epic proportions, spanning multiple actual years and a number of releases.
     
    This talk will focus on the high-level architecture of the qt/qml integration. How did Bricsys integrate Qt into an MFC/wxWidgets app and what are the pitfalls for various platforms? How do they structure their new C++ and/or qml plugins, qml tests, what paradigms are used to let the back-end talk to the front-end? Special mentions go to their live reload solution and integration of qml tests into existing infrastructure, as well as a short overview of lessons learned using qml for desktop development at BricsCAD scale.

    KDE Eco: Achievements, Impact, and To-Do's

    Given Free and Open Source Software's core values of transparency and user autonomy, FOSS has an edge to become the most resource and energy efficient software. In fact, the connection between sustainability and transparency/user autonomy is reflected in the award criteria for Blue Angel eco-certification, the environmental label awarded by the German government; and it has been the motivation behind the KDE Eco initiative since its beginning in 2021. The KDE Eco initiative aims to quantify and drive down the energy consumption of KDE/Free Software as well as to foster a culture of sustainability within the FOSS community, including the Qt community and Qt-based applications.
     
    In this talk KDE will present the (i) achievements, (ii) impact, and (iii) to-do's of the KDE Eco initiative. It will address the following:
     
    - What are the achievements of KDE Eco so far? These include Okular receiving the Blue Angel eco-label and research by KDE community members into methods of energy consumption measurements, setting up a community lab at KDAB Berlin, and developing tools for measuring software, among others.
     
    - What has been the impact of the KDE Eco initiative? From the developer side, this includes discussion of efficiency-related bug reports/MR requests and efficiency changes in software design. From the user side, this includes information related to community responses in (social) media as well as quantifying engagement and other data-driven metrics.
     
    - What are the to-dos going forward? Here KDE will present their goals for the future and the steps bring taken to achieve them.
     
    The talk will open up opportunities for broader collaboration between Qt and KDE Eco, and provide practical examples for sustainability initiatives going forward.

    How Not to Design Reusable Components in QML

    Reusable components are at the heart of QML and any other type of UI programming. The success of your UI development efforts depend on the extent of our success with component design in the technology we're using. There are many pitfalls of component design including, but not limited to: Depending on contextual information - Making decisions about component position in view when that decision should be left to the user of the component, not using proper implicit size information, making assumptions about where a component is used, using hard-coded size information making it difficult to adjust to different screen sizes, and using hard-coded colors making it difficult to create different themes. In the three years of working with QML to rebuild the UI of Autodesk's large CAD software, Furkan has learned a lot about component design in the real world and made mistakes. This talk is an attempt to sharing those mistakes and the solutions used to avoid them.

    Qt Design Studio – Designers in the Development Cycle

    Developing a 3D scene for limited hardware: this talk will try to showcase the benefits for designers using Qt Design Studio, and their struggles with product life cycle and asset management.

    Designers are a diverse group – we have 3D artists, UX designers, UI Illustrators, technical designers and more. Maintaining UI/UX cohesion across multiple creative applications, is hard, but it's especially hard when working on a "living, breathing, evolving" product.

    In this talk we will try to use a demo 3D application to showcase potential methods of communication flow between product implementation and design stages. We will discuss what works, what can be considered best practices, and some of the problems and possible solutions.

    Taking 3D Content to the Next Level with Physics, Global Illumination, Reflections and Spatial Audio

    Qt Quick 3D is a high-level Qt API for creating 3D scenes that can be seamlessly combined with 2D UI elements made with Qt Quick. It is also powers Qt Design Studio when it comes to working with 3D content and assets. Qt 6.4 brings a significant number of new features in the 3D space. These are highly relevant both for developers working with the QML APIs, and for designers who are using Qt Design Studio to create 3D scenes and user interfaces without any code.
     
    Qt 6.4 introduces the new Qt Quick 3D Physics module; a new high-level API for physics simulation with support for simulating static and dynamic rigid bodies, collision shapes, and a character controller.
    Also new is the technical preview of a global illumination solution based on pre-baked lightmaps. This allows us to create 3D scenes with more realistic lighting in ways that were not possible in earlier releases. Lightmap data is raytraced during the offline baking process, which allows for calculating indirect lighting simulating the bouncing of light from one surface to another, and allows for proper occlusion and shadows without the performance and accuracy limitations of real-time techniques.
     
    Reflection probes are the tools for creating highly realistic reflections in 3D scenes. They were introduced in Qt 6.3. Qt 6.4 brings higher quality, performance, and usability improvements.
     
    Qt Quick 3D's physically based materials have been undergoing constant improvements in the recent Qt releases. Qt 6.4 opens for using the specular/glossiness workflow instead of metallic/roughness, enabled by the new SpecularGlossyMaterial QML type. Custom materials and post-processing effects have been enhanced with support for cube map textures, which has also been incorporated into the scene environment allowing for new ways of specifying the skybox for a scene. Support for procedurally generated sky textures has been added as well. The Custom Material Editor tool, that first made its appearance in Qt 6.3, has been further hardened, allowing live editing and previewing of 3D materials with custom shader code.
     
    Finally, Qt Multimedia and Qt Quick 3D are introducing spatial audio support to enable placing sound sources in 3D space and simulating room acoustics with reflections and reverb.
     
    In this shared presentation, the developers of Qt Quick 3D are going to introduce some of the most important improvements in the engine and its APIs, while also demonstrating them both with code and real running example applications.

    The iOS Style for Qt Quick Controls 2

    Qt Quick Controls applications running on iOS haven't yet had a native-looking style, forcing developers to use one of the other predefined styles. These include the Material style or manually customizing the controls to get their UIs close to the native iOS look. Now, with the Qt 6.4 release, Qt Quick Controls is adding iOS to its list of available styles. This will provide a native look and feel for Qt Quick Controls on iOS. This presentation will show you the process of making a native-looking iOS application using Qt Quick Controls with the iOS style.

    CMake and Qt. qt_add_qml_module in Practice

    The need to switch from qmake to Cmake has caused many Qt developers to have difficulty organizing their projects. Lukas found it difficult as well until the introduction of CMake's qt_add_qml_module function.
     
    This function makes it much easier to define a QML module, but it's not always obvious how to use many of its options correctly. This presentation will provide you with answers to common questions and concerns such as:
    - What is qt_add_qml_module function and what can you use it for?
    - How to add resources to your module.
    - How to integrate C++ and Qmla using this function.
     
    In addition, Lukas will touch on some additional options and provide you with an open source example of a Qt Qml project with a module organized using this function.

    5 Reasons Why You Should Use the Latest Qt for Python

    C++ has evolved tremendously in the last decade in its quest to become a safer, more elegant language while giving more fine-grained control to the user. However, C++ has a steep learning curve associated with it. People don’t want to invest much time into learning the intricacies of C++ and Qt with C++. Alternatively, Python has gained a strong popularity among programmers due to its extensive usage in Data Science, Deep Learning, and its flat learning curve. It was imminent that Qt, being the best GUI development framework, made its way into Python. Qt for Python not only provides a GUI framework for users in Python ecosystem, but also paves way for rapid prototyping with Qt for C++ developers. With Qt for Python, we offer not one but two solutions to Python developers; PySide – Qt Bindings for Python, and Shiboken – a tool to bring your C++ code into Python. Just like C++, Qt for Python has greatly improved with every release always heeding ideas and requests from our users.
     
    But how can this help your current project? How can you bring one of the most popular ecosystems to your application scope?
     
    This talk will discuss the top 5 features in the 6.3 release and demonstrate how each of these features can benefit your PySide6 application. Hear about topics ranging from improving the speed of your PySide6 application, cross-compiling PySide6 to arm64 platform, to improved support for PySide6 QML applications.
     
    You will also learn about all the features that are being planned and developed for the next releases which will boost your project reach and workflow even more.

    Qt and WebAssembly Takes Client Development Mainstream to the Web

    Qt has made substantial investment in WebAssembly in recent years. Many developers and observers initially looked at this as a side technology within the domain of prototyping or specialist web components. At Hungry Mile Software, we were motivated to standardize on a rich client application framework for all browser deployment and determined to work with Qt WebAssembly.
     
    Having now successfully completed a number of exclusively WebAssembly projects, we have been delighted and pleasantly surprised by how well the Qt technology works for mainstream business software. The platform provides superior experience for applications that would have been the domain of PHP, Angular or React in years past.
     
    We will demonstrate an online application that has been ported from PHP to Qt Web Assembly. The consumer-based application provides financial planning services and is rich in data capture and user experience. We will show how QML is used here to provide a very effective and productive development environment for highly responsive user interface development which is key for browser-deployed apps. Qt technologies and components such as state machines can be used effectively in web applications which have otherwise been unavailable in bespoke or standard Javascript web frameworks.
     
    In our presentation we will describe some useful experiences around deployment, tips for developer productivity, and highlight some issues to consider including threading. We will also demonstrate how MQTT can be used (even from a browser application!) to provide exceptional usability and experience for online and near online users.

    Developing a Unified Mobile and Desktop App with Qt

    The distinction between mobile and desktop applications is becoming increasingly blurred. Convertible touchscreen PCs and iPads with paired keyboards and trackpads are now commonplace, and it's easy to plug a phone into a large screen and connect a bluetooth keyboard and mouse. User's expectations are changing, and people are trying to achieve more tasks on a variety of platforms that would typically require a desktop, and to use traditional desktop platforms in field environments.
     
    Memory-Map has developed an app using Qt 6.2 and QML that works across iOS/Android/PC/Mac and Linux, across all screen sizes from handheld to cinematic, and across different input devices such as touchscreen, mouse, trackpad and pen/pencil/stylus. Qt is the ideal cross-platform environment to support this goal. This talk will cover practical techniques to leverage each environment. While Qt targets all the different operating systems, and we developed an application framework that scales to different screen sizes, we found that responding appropriately to different input devices was the most difficult challenge. One example is a list view, where the user can scroll, select multiple items and use a context menu. When the user has a keyboard and mouse we can use right-click, shift-click, ctrl-click just like Windows Explorer or Mac Finder. With a touchscreen, the items in the list have additional padding to make them easier to select with a finger, and we use a long-press and a special multi-select mode to achieve the same functionality. With a stylus/pen/pencil, the user has more precise pointing ability, so we use the more compact presentation, but they typically do not have a keyboard, and the Apple pencil has no side button for a right click. So, the stylus interface uses parts of the mouse and touchscreen UI.
    This talk will finish by looking at the big picture. Currently, Fortune 500 companies have to issue thousands of employees each a phone, tablet and a laptop, because different apps work best on different platforms. For example, to use Excel you need a keyboard and mouse to use the context menus, or select a range of cells, while the iPad works great as a presentation tool. If all these apps were truly scaled, the companies would not need to provide multiple devices, saving a huge amount of money and saving the world a mountain of electronic waste. At the same time, many people in developing countries only have access to one device. We can provide a full desktop UI on an Android phone with an attached screen and keyboard. That is the motivation for developing a truly cross-platform app.

    Hands-On Tour of Embedded Linux System Calls In Qt

    While Qt offers tremendous functionality in performing system level tasks in the framework via C++, there are some tasks that are best performed via system calls. However, making system calls in the traditional manner for a Qt application is destructive, since it conflicts with the Qt main event loop. In this talk, we will take a peek behind the Qt main event loop, briefly understand how it works, and see how making system calls in the traditional fashion results in degraded performance. We will learn how we can correctly make system calls in a Qt application and see examples in a real-world application.

    Qt and C++20

    When Qt 5.0 was released, it was the first version to require C++98 compliant compilers. Qt 5.7 then required C++11, and Qt 6.0 C++17. We're now 2½ years past the finalization of C++20, and we've developed a roadmap for C++20 support in Qt.
     
    This talk will first present the general roadmap, then dive into details about what C++20 support means for the Qt C++ APIs. We'll talk about the big features (concepts, modules, ranges, coroutines, etc) as well as the small.
     
    Participants will leave with a thorough understanding of the Qt roadmap for C++20 and a few API ideas to take home and apply to their own projects.

    How Test Automation Can Improve Customer Satisfaction and Accelerate Time-to-Market

    Development costs and release frequencies increase, you actually have less time for testing than ever before. Year on year, developers are doing more testing, and this testing is happening earlier in the development cycle. It’s nearly impossible to accelerate development without an automated testing tool. You want the best tool for your situation – and, of course, it needs to be easy to use.

    The big increase in time spent execute manual testing and writing and maintain test cases. Due to that test automation coverage has decreased. This may lead to customers un satisfaction due to products and services are not meet expected quality.

    Although there is an up-front investment to use automated testing, the long-term benefits to businesses are huge. First, it saves you time and money on quality assurance during the development phase. Second, it makes it possible to find bugs and problems before they affect the user experience. This keeps the company from losing customers and revenue and improve customers satisfaction.

    With Qt Group’s Quality Assurance portfolio, you are able to address your software quality needs. By using Qt Group’s next-generation Quality Assurance tools, you are able to set your entire test framework.

    How to Know When it’s Time to Call in an Expert

    Software development projects are increasingly complex. Successful projects require skilled staff with expertise to address the myriad aspects of connected or regulated devices, all working together on various aspects of the project. This is a brief overview of the options projects have to level up their team, ranging from training, use of consultants to guide the process and other staffing to help avoid problems and be prepared for them.

    Qt and QNX; Two Q’s That When Deployed Together, Can Make a Safe, Secure, Robust Platform With a Compelling User Experience

    Embedded developers do more with less.  We all want the world in a user interface, but developers are given limited resources and a small CPU + GPU complex to perform complex embedded tasks while operating interactively.  Yet, the user experience is critical to the success of modern embedded devices. 

    Devices with little user interface often lack warmth and depth.  A simple LED showing that the device was operational once was ideal, but now newer devices use configuration records in embedded deployment to give a robust look and feel.  Or maybe the user interface has the look and feel of Windows 98.  Then there are devices with a rich set of user interface screens sometimes can be overwhelming to the user and they may shy away from the more advanced screens.

    We will explore the user experience on devices that take advantage of both QNX and Qt, to create a compelling embedded story of safety, security, robustness with a killer UI, that enhances the user experience, without detracting from its usability.  All starting with the development environment to create and optimize the user experience with ease of usability and intuitiveness while still providing the ease of implementation for the developer who must implement, port, and maintain the user experience of your device over its entire lifespan.

    QML Hot Reload in Practice: How to Get More Productive with Code Reload

    Bringing a great User Experience for your product is hard. And often, we don't spend our time working on UX since we struggle with the development process. Choosing the right tools can help to save time and overcome those challenges. One of those tools is QML Code Reload, which allows applying code changes to a running application in real-time.
     
    In this talk, you learn:
     
    * What is Code Reload
    * How to get more productive with QML Code Reload
    * The difference between Code Reload and Hot Reload
    * Available QML Code Reload tools
    * How to review UX in realtime for remote teams

    Tests, Failures and Videotape

    In this talk, we will discover how to enhance existing GUI tests and infrastructure. We will accomplish this by capturing the behavior of Qt applications in the form of visual and/or multi-media content. We will also take a look at some examples of how to use this visual (non-textual) data to reproduce GUI bugs easily and debug test failures more efficiently.
     
    When a daily report from continuous integration running GUI tests of your Qt application blinks red in the morning, it's usually time to get down to work and use any means necessary to find out what led to the test failure. Sometimes however, traditional debugging and tracing techniques in textual form (such as logging, verbose error output or stack traces) fall short when it comes to ensuring debuggability and traceability. Different, more efficient methods are needed.
     
    Some say that a picture is worth a thousand words. Can a picture (in the form of screenshot) perhaps help us capture the scene of GUI test failure more precisely than any text output can? If yes, can we do even better with a moving picture and record the events leading to the test failure with video capture? What are some practical examples of using videos captured by our GUI tests?
     
    That, and more, is what we are going to find out in this talk and demo.

    Tips and Tricks for Testing Large Projects with the Qt Test Framework

    Building large-scale, feature-rich projects that run on multiple platforms poses many testing challenges. Some challenges include reliably building and running all the tests on the various platforms, reporting test results in a consistent manner, and eliminating flaky tests to ensure regressions are caught immediately. This talk will explore many of the tips and tricks Esri uses to keep our 25,000+ tests running and passing consistently.

    The New Qt Quick Compiler Technology

    Since Qt 6.2, we have gradually phased in the new Qt Quick Compiler Technology. Using the overhauled qmlcachegen and the new qmlsc and qmltc, you can significantly speed up your application. The talk will show you how to use these tools, what benefit to expect, and how you should adapt your own code to make best use of them.

    Take Cover or Don't Forget Your Towel! Code Coverage Workout

    Code Coverage is a metric that tells you how much your tests exercise your application.
    And the application should sweat, shouldn't it?

    In this hands-on session, I will explain Code Coverage, then we will exercise an application with tests. You will learn the idea of Code Coverage: how to use CoCo to measure and how to improve your tests.

    It is up to you to check what is covered, but isn't it good to always be covered?
