Meet Qt for Tizen at SmartDevCon 2013

The Qt for Tizen project was invited to give a lecture at SmartDevCon so you can meet the undersigned there on Saturday, September 14, 11:15. SmartDevCon is a conference aimed at companies and specialists working on modern device solutions such as tablets, smartphones, game consoles, connected TVs and In-Vehicle Infotainment. Quite a bit of that is related to Tizen. Among others, guys doing Qt-related R&D from Samsung, Jolla and Ubuntu can be met in a single location!

Our talk is called Porting Qt to a new Smartphone for Fun and Fame. The idea is to tell a story about how Qt can adapt to your project needs, form factors and new devices, how it improves the way you work with them. Qt for Tizen is a case study here.
