QT embedded hands-on workshop
24-09-2015 :: Auberge du Pecheur - Pontstraat 41 9831 Deurle (Sint-Martens-Latem)

Organizer: EBV Elektronik in cooperation with Essensium-Mind

This workshop will show how a Qt application is developed and deployed on an embedded platform. Although this workshop is not sufficient to immediately start programming Qt applications, it gives enough pointers to documentation, tutorials and examples to allow you to learn Qt on your own. The presentations will cover the full design flow starting from Yocto installation up to the hardware connection to the board enabling software deployment.
This seminar is hosted by EBV in collaboration with Essensium Mind as experienced service provider for Qt development and board bring-up. The i.MX6 Sabre SD (Smart Device Cortex A9) development board will be used as hardware platform during the workshop.
Prerequisites: Own laptop with VirtualBox installed. A download for the image will be provided after registration.
