Write once, build anywhere – Qt runs on virtually anything. You probably have applications built with Qt running on your computer, smart phone, television, and other electronics.

This course targets Qt5 but is mostly compatible with Qt6 - I am in the process of recording the Qt6 material, anyone owning this course will get a free upgrade to the Qt6 version.

No experience with QML necessary, this is a beginners course that will teach you the foundations QMLcross platform development. QML runs anywhere from desktops (windows, mac, linux) to cellphone, and embedded devices.

We will start with a short introduction to QML, and then rapidly move on to more complex topics such as layouts, properties and animations.

This course is specifically designed for Qt 5 with the QML beginner in mind. These videos take you from knowing nothing about QML to creating intermediate level applications using QML, JavaScript and C++. These videos build on the popular Qt Core series available on Udemy. These videos show many best practices and how to overcome common mistakes. About the author: Bryan has created hundreds of Qt tutorials available on YouTube and has created official Qt training videos for the Qt Company. Full source code available on GitHub, and runs a Facebook community with thousands of developers that can offer free help 24x7.

Highly recommended that you have a strong foundation in Qt Core before attempting this course - fear not, I have other courses available on Udemy:

Qt 5 Core Intermediate

Qt 5 Core Advanced
