I’m an IT student at Epitech Paris in France.
During my third year of studies, I had the opportunity to work with the Qt framework and really appreciated the power QtQuick provided. Having had to develop professionnal Android applications during my second internship, it is my honest opinion that Qt and QtQuick are way ahead of what can currently be done on other platforms while still providing cross platform support.
Starting March of last year, I’ve been a developer of the Tepee3D application along with a team of 7 other students. The project is based on a futuristic 3D UI concept where the user can navigate through rooms he can personalize by adding widgets to them. One key aspect of the project is that an API is provided so that user can create new widgets. The opensource aspect of the project is important to our team and the code is freely available on gitorious at http://gitorious.org/tepee3d
I’ve supervised the development of the Tepee3D application with two other members while other teammates where focusing on building the Tepee3D website, promoting the project and providing designs. Some of the great challenges I encountered were :
- The development of the plugin API.
- Loading shared libraries and their qml content at runtime in the application.
- Solve various bug in the Qt3D module.
I added some features that we needed in the Qt3D library and I’d still like to contribute if the opportunity presents itself to the Qt-project.
If you’d like to know more about the project in general, please visit http://tepee3d.dyndns.org
