About the Book

The Qt application framework is quickly taking over all software development environments and being adapted for use by all modern programming languages from C++ to Java to Python and Mono.This book teaches you how to utilize Qt with Mono (the Open Source version of C#). Mono development, once associated strictly with the Gnome desktop, is now migrating to the Qt platform just like the K desktop (KDE) did years ago. Ubuntu has been pushing this migration with their Unity front end and OpenSuse (one of the biggest Mono development shops) isn't far behind.

Even veteran C++ Qt developers will find this book useful for its in-depth chapter on report creation. Generation of pretty, or even column aligned reports has been the major stumbling block of the Qt environment since its creation. New tools and some major tricks have come are way and they are covered here, along with the pitfalls placed in our path by an inexcusable change to the Linux printing environment.
