Since more then 30 years I’m developing business solutions for SMP and Enterprise, where the last 8 years I’m focused on mobile APP development.
There are many challenges to master while developing mobile APPs for different platforms (Android, iOS, Windows 10 mobile, BlackBerry10) and there are many frameworks out there to do this (Angular, Ionic, React Native, Xamarin, Qt, …). The decision about the right framework for more complicated and complex mobile business APPs isn’t easy. You’ll find small example apps and all looks good. Then you start with your project and some weeks or months later you reach the limits, performance goes down, APP becomes instable and you’re in real trouble.
I went through all of this and finally found the best framework for my APPs: Qt. Yes – Qt is an ‘old’ framework and exists since more then 20 years, but Qt 2017 isn’t the same as Qt 1990. Qt covers development for desktop, mobile or embedded APPs and provides QtQuick, QtWidgets and the new QtQuickControls2. QtQuickControls2 are not an update of QtQuick, but a complete new framework and from my experiences last 2 years I must say: you can develop very performant stable mobile APPs with NO LIMITS.
Most of my business applications are running hidden at customer site and I cannot talk about. That’s the reason why I’m developing example apps and from time to time conference apps. Last year I developed the Qt World Summit Conference APP – this year the Conference APP is built by V-Play – another way to develop mobile APPs with Qt. Christian Feldbacher is talking about V-Play APPs at Qt World Summit.
This doesn’t mean that I was lazy 😉 I was heavy working on one of my more complex mobile Business APPs: ProfSys – an APP to support Care Services (outbound and inbound) and I’m glad to present this APP at Qt World Summit 2017 in Berlin. Knowing that thousands of Care-Services-employees are running the APP successfully for their daily work is great. There will be two sessions:
- Roland Wienen (CEO IC-SYS): Success With Mobile First in a Real Business Case
- My session: No Limits: How to Make a More Complicated Mobile Business APP
Roland will talk about the Business aspects and I will talk about the development and give some tips and tricks.
See what can be done with QtQuickControls2 for mobile APP development.
Looking foward to meet you at QtWorldSummit2017 in Berlin or at W-JAX in Munich where I’m talking about Bluetooth LE and mobile business APPs.
