Solutions for Application Development

As a developer, you most likely have a favorite operating system, toolchain, and language. At work, the choices might be made for you, but Qt gives you some freedom by enabling you to maintain a single software code base across all operating systems, platforms, and screen types, from desktops and embedded systems to business-critical applications, in-vehicle systems, wearables, and mobile devices connected to the Internet of Things.
