In Detail

Qt is the leading cross-platform toolkit for all significant desktop, mobile, and embedded platforms and is becoming more popular by the day, especially on mobile and embedded devices. Despite its simplicity, it's a powerful tool that perfectly fits game developers' needs. Using Qt and Qt Quick, it is easy to build fun games or shiny user interfaces. You only need to create your game once and deploy it on all major platforms like iOS, Android, and WinRT without changing a single source file.

The book begins with a brief introduction to creating an application and preparing a working environment for both desktop and mobile platforms. It then dives deeper into the basics of creating graphical interfaces and Qt core concepts of data processing and display before you try creating a game. As you progress through the chapters, you'll learn to enrich your games by implementing network connectivity and employing scripting. We then delve into Qt Quick, OpenGL, and various other tools to add game logic, design animation, add game physics, and build astonishing UI for the games. Towards the final chapters, you'll learn to exploit mobile device features such as accelerators and sensors to build engaging user experiences. If you are planning to learn about Qt and its associated toolsets to build apps and games, this book is a must have.

Style and approach

This is an easy-to-follow, example-based, comprehensive introduction to all the major features in Qt. The content of each chapter is explained and organized around one or multiple simple game examples to learn Qt in a fun way.

About the Author:

Witold Wysota

Witold Wysota is a software architect and developer living in Poland. He started his adventure with Qt in 2004 when he joined QtForum.org and started answering questions about programming with Qt. Shortly afterwards, he became part of the moderator group of the forum. In 2006, together with the moderator team, he established QtCentre.org, which quickly became the largest community-driven support site devoted to Qt. For a number of years, he conducted commercial, academic, and public trainings and workshops and has been giving lectures on Qt, Qt Quick, and related technologies. He is a certified Qt developer and was a member of Qt Education Advisory Board with Nokia, where he helped prepare materials in order to use Qt in educational activities. Witold was also a technical reviewer for Foundations of Qt Development, Johan Thelin, Apress Publishing, a book about Qt 4, and an author of a couple of articles on programming with Qt. In real life, he is a passionate adept of Seven Star Praying Mantis, a traditional style of Chinese martial arts.
