This is part 2 of Windows 10 related submissions and will go into technical details.
Windows 10 has been released in summer 2015 and Qt welcomes this new version by providing full support for it.
However, some considerations might be needed to get the most out of your project and get started developing for Windows 10.
This talk will give a detailed overview of getting started with Qt and Windows 10. A project will be compiled, deployed and run on desktop, mobile as well as Windows 10 IoT Core (most likely Raspberry Pi2).
Following that a couple of descriptions for Windows 10 related packaging will be presented. How does the sandboxing look like on Windows 10? What are Universal Binaries and what kind of support does Qt provide for them. Also all steps required for publishing to the Windows Store will be explained.
The last section talks about moving existing projects to Windows 10, first running on desktop and then later on embedded. A couple of options and parameters might be required to successfully launch the project under the new environment. In some cases such a “port” from one Windows version to another might not even be required. The pros and cons will be presented as well too.
