Porting Applications to Qt Best approaches and pitfalls to avoid when migrating your app from a legacy framework

KDAB has unique experience in porting the code base for toolkits like Qt 3, Qt 4, Motif, Java, Tcl, GTK, .NET, MFC, and Photon to Qt 5. Porting legacy GUI toolkits to Qt 5 is a job where proven experience saves a lot of time.

In this presentation we highlight the main problems facing developers using legacy toolkits, what migrations are and which approaches to migrations are possible. We give you a short overview of common guidelines in starting migrations including common pitfalls and also discuss how KDAB can assist in porting your legacy code base to a modern Qt-based system using our tooling for automatic conversions.
