    Post Some QT books

    Hi, I am learning QT, but I find that there are only four or five books bout QT in China. And what's worse, they are almost the same. And I want to further my study in QT.
    Do you guys know some good books for learning QT, including books writte in English. Thanks

    Default Re: Some QT books

    Well, the two standard books which have almost the same content are:
    • Jasmin Blanchette and Mark Summerfield: C++ GUI Programming with Qt 4 (2nd Edition) (Prentice Hall Open Source Software Development Series)
    • Johan Thelin: Foundations of Qt® Development (Expert's Voice in Open Source)


    Read one of them, read also a book about pure C++ and then you are well prepared. To further study just read the documentation parts of your interest and study other projects source code. That's the best way to improve your skills.

  3. The following user says thank you to Lykurg for this useful post:

    Well I got a question(possible problem) about that. If you look at other people's code. Aren't you more than likely just going to copy and paste their solutions and never learn?

    It depends on the person how much he copies. If he copies everything, doesnt try anythnig by himself... then he is at loss.

    Others code must be used to understand the use of framework, and to some extent the patterns in the code.

    Well if you only c&p the code, then surely you won't learn anything. But me e.g. I look at the code, try to understand what they have done and then mainly code the structures and design patterns I have learned myself optimized for my project...
    Then you could learn a lot! Very much!
