Training: Programming for Microcontrollers (STMicroelectronics)

Qt for MCUs is a complete graphics framework and toolkit with everything you need to design, develop, and deploy GUIs/HMIs on MCUs.

During the training session, you'll learn the basics and get your hands-on programming with Qt for MCUs. The lecturer will introduce you to the Qt Quick Ultralite rendering engine, running on bare metal or FreeRTOS, with Ultralite Controls and an optimized subset of QML. This enables you to create smartphone-like user experiences on microcontrollers with the familiar Qt Creator IDE and other tools.

Learn about:

• Qt for MCUs package content

• Building and running an application using the command line

• Qt for MCUs application build process

• CMake API

• Qt for MCUs specific components

• Configuring Qt Creator IDE

• Asset management

• Styling controls

• Internationalization

• C++/QML integration

Live coding exercises will be included in the training, and you'll create your own Qt for MCUs application! 

*The reference target platforms used in the training will be the following STMicroelectronics microcontrollers:
