Invitation: Qt Training – Dubai, March 14-15, 2011

Forum Nokia is hosting a free 2-day intensive training workshop on Qt in Dubai, U.A.E. on 14-15 March 2011. Based on the popular Qt Creator IDE, the Nokia Qt SDK brings the power of Qt to Symbian, Maemo, and MeeGo application development. Learn how Qt cuts Symbian lines of code by up to 70% and at the same time delivers native app performance, platform integration, and look and feel. Also find out how to reach 100 million Symbian smartphones and 150 million to come in 190 countries with Qt and Ovi Store. If you are new to Qt and would like to know more about it, check out the Forum Nokia Qt page.

This will be a hands-on, classroom-style, setting where developers will be taught how to create mobile applications using Qt for Symbian smartphones, focusing primarily on smartphones like the Nokia N8, Nokia C7 and upcoming Nokia E7.

If you are curious to learn more about Qt then this workshop will allow you to ask experts about its technical capabilities, exchange ideas with your peers, and see for yourself how Qt will provide increased flexibility while reducing long term support costs.
