Qt DevDays 2009 - Munich

I have not blogged much about what I work with or do and that's on purpose.  Sometimes I am not allowed to tell and mostly I think you would not find it interesting.  However, I wanna share with you from Qt Developer Days #qtdd09 in Munich, which was an amazing event.

 

Not only is Qt a decent Developer tool for making desktop apps, but joining forces with Nokia, ex-Trolltech is getting far more traction as well. As a result of last week's devdays but also beta-release of Qt 4.6, one of my favorite online newsletter had this article last week.

 

But being at DevDays Europe is an amazing experience. Third year now for me and it keeps blowing my mind off.  This year an amazing 660 delegates + the 80+ Nokians that attended/helped out.

 

The DevDays often comes with some new stuff.  This year, the former Trolltech cheif engineer, Matthias Ettrich, launched QML in his keynote as the future of portable user interfaces.  An external review seems quite upbeat about QML Here is a demo

 

 

New for the year was Qt in Use that highlight what our partners and customers were doing with Qt. A few examples:

- Red Flag's incorporate of Qt SDK for their Linux Distro that has 50% of the market in China

- Commercial Open Source cases from Ogre, VideoLAN and KitWare

- TI's use of Beagle and Qt

- Pascal Lauria from Xandros reviewed how the first ever Netbook was built using Qt

- Digia showed how Qt can be used on Symbian

- etc etc.

 

Overall, it is not difficult to see that the future is bright when being at DevDays.  A hard-core techie crowd that uses, improves and helps in making Qt better. Now, with the support of Windows 7, Symbian and Maemo. And with QML, Qt Creator and a nicer IDE and later integrating cWRT, Nokia do have a winner and should be able to capatilize for the next couple of years.

 

There are of course alternatives to Qt - HTML5 (limited but still), Adobe Air, Microsoft Silverlight and not to forget, Java but I would think that Service Providers (be it fixed or wireless) should take a serious look at how to incorporate a Qt-based services/application framework for them to address any sort of device, not just mobile phones.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
