PART 1Getting to Know Qt
In the first few chapters of this book, you will get acquainted with the Qt way of doing things—including using available classes as well as creating your own classes that interact with the existing ones. You will also learn about the build system and some of the tools available to help make the lives of Qt developers easier.
CHAPTER 1The Qt Way of C++
Qt is a cross-platform, graphical, application development toolkit that enables you to compile and run your applications on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and different brands of Unix. A large part of Qt is devoted to providing a platform-neutral interface to everything, ranging from representing characters in memory to creating a multithreaded graphical application.
