Qt presentation – introducing Qt for developers
We’ve made a slide deck for your use when introducing developers to Qt. Many have asked for such slide deck the past year to help in presenting Qt at the workplace, a customer event or at a free software conference.
Cut away please
There are 88 slides available, covering just about everything you’d want to present during an introduction. Actually, it covers way more you would want to include in a typical 40 minute presentation. If you have a lot of time to fill and an extremely enthusiastic audience, you can probably split the deck in two and present two 45-minute sessions.
For a single 40-minute slot, you’ll want to pick and choose the right slides for you and your audience. For example, slides in the deck cover everything from the very high-level basics to some reasonably in-depth topics. It’s usually a good idea to ditch the deep stuff when talking to management, and ditch the easy stuff if you’re in front of a room full of hard core coders. The newest LibreOffice suite [libreoffice.org] offers a “mute slide” choice in the lefthand preview window. This allows you to “mute” slides you don’t want to show to a particular audience so you don’t have to literally cut slides out of the deck every time you present. Here is an overview of the slides:
- General overview: slides 1-14
- Technical walk through: slides 15-67
- Developer tools: slides 68-75
- Qt Quick: slides 76-80
- Qt in use: slides 81-88
