    Default How did you learn Qt?

    Hey guys,

    I just wonder how did you learn Qt? Could someone recommend a channel or book to watch/read?

    Learning by doing. I had some small projects that required a GUI, and so I got from labels, buttons, layouts to custom painting and the more advanced stuff. In the beginning I used the Qt examples, but when you've understood how Qt works it's mostly enough to read the docs (and sometimes the Qt source code...).

    I also learned by doing, but I found the books by Mark Summerfield and Jasmin Blanchette and by Mark Summerfield to be really great for learning.

    The code in the Qt examples usually doesn't include a lot of information about why the code was written in the way it was. The books fill in that gap by working through extensive examples covering several chapters, explaining what and why. Even though these are now old and based on Qt4, the basic parts of Qt concerned with building GUIs with Qt and C++ haven't changed a whole lot from Qt4 -> Qt5.

    Please use CODE tags when posting source code so it is more readable. Click "Go Advanced" and then the "#" icon to insert the tags. Paste your code between them.
