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.
