Again, a post after a long time, maybe was concentrating more on writing code 😉 So, Mukthi 9.05 (Dunno why they used ubuntu naming conventions :P) was held on 1st and 2nd of May, and it was really fun and rewarding. Well, mostly because I got a chance to give a talk session on Qt Designer (which I later changed to Qt Creator).
Initially I was really not sure because I had my exams till 30th April. But then I changed my mind (basically I was made to change my mind, which I now really thank) and prepared for the session. The talk was going to be about Qt Designer, a GUI designer for the Qt Application framework, and I had decided to demonstrate a simple text editor built using that, because it turned out to be a success at the FOSSMeet at NITC last month. I made two changes the last moment, I decided to demonstrate using the recently launched cross platform IDE from Qt Software – Qt Creator, which had an embedded Qt Designer. I hoped it'd be more interesting to beginners, which really turned out to be correct. Second, I added another demo application featuring a Web Browser using Webkit support available. This too was successful, because there was lots of applause when the browser displayed Google !! On a whole, the talk was good, the only problem being, again, my low voice which I'd try to remove from next sessions.
