KDAB Talks at Qt World Summit – Boston October 30th
KDAB is offering two talks at Qt World Summit in Boston. Here’s a preview before the full program is published. The first, from Qt 3D expert Mike Krus, gives an in-depth look at how to make the collaboration between designers and developers smoother. The second, from Qt expert David Faure, introduces KDAB’s awesome Opensource tools for Qt, developed by KDAB R&D to simplify analysis and fix performance issues we all have to deal with:
Creating compelling blended 2D/3D applications. A solution for artists and developers
with Mike Krus Qt 3D is now established as the ideal 3D rendering engine for cross platform applications needing to integrate 3D content with 2D interfaces in a seamless way. The scene graph lets developers import and control geometry and materials, while the frame graph can be used to build advanced rendering effects with ease. However, just as in the case of 2D content, best results are achieved when designers and developer share a common experience and toolset. Yet the tools used to author 3D scenes, the geometry, the materials, the lighting, the animations, are all very different from what most developers are familiar with. In this talk, we introduce techniques and principles which make the collaboration between designers and developers smoother. We identify the major pain points and highlight tools and patterns for addressing each of them. We will look at data formats, model conditioning, runtime integration and rendering effects in order to produce compelling applications integrating 3D content with a traditional 2D interface. We will illustrate all these concepts with a running example.
KDAB’s Opensource Tools for Qt
with David Faure Richard Feynman is considered one of the greatest physicists, largely because he was able to build lots of practical mathematical tools that greatly simplify the analysis of complex phenomena, thus making them accessible and useful to many. KDAB maintains its position as the leading Qt consulting firm, partly because of the huge effort KDAB’s top-class engineers put into R&D projects to build great tooling for Qt applications. This tooling has helped countless other engineers solve bugs in their code, fix performance issues and prevent more problems from slipping into codebases. The cherry on top of all this Qt goodness is that KDAB publishes its tooling under Opensource licenses! Come to this talk if you want to discover how KDAB’s awesome Opensource Tools for Qt can help you.
