The Qt toolkit has existed since the mid-90s and has been used for development of many desktop and embedded applications, including the entire KDE desktop and tools such as VLC. In 2011 the Qt Project was established to drive the future development of the project: a true Open Source project with an open governance model, based on the models found in mature open source communities like the Linux kernel and WebKit. The main goal of the project for 2012 is to launch Qt 5.0, the first major version of Qt in 7 years.
The talk will focus on how the Qt Project's community is set up, the interactions between the community members and show how a new-comer can approach the project with their ideas and contributions.
