Kubuntu Tutorial Days


Kubuntu Tutorials Day is back, and this time it’s with special guest star speakers.

Incase you missed it in previous years (check out the logs, there’s some interesting sessions in there), Kubuntu Tutorials Day is a few hours of interactive IRC sessions on topics around Kubuntu and KDE development. If you’ve always wanted to get started in helping out Kubuntu or programming in Qt this is the perfect opportunity.

Guest speakers

Johan Thelin, the author of best selling book “Foundations of Qt Development” will be talking on Start Coding Qt. If you’re going to code Qt, best start by learning from the best.

Alan Alpert from Nokia will be running a session on Introduction to Qt Quick and QML. Qt Quick is the exciting new way to program, centred around design rather than code.
