Product Description

From the Back Cover

KDE Application Development provides a no-nonsense approach to writing applications using the KDE and Qt for Linux developers with limited or no GUI or desktop programming experience, as well as for GUI developers from other platforms who want to learn to create Linux applications. It covers such essentials as- understanding how the K Desktop Environment (KDE) applications can communicate with each other; using the essential widgets available in the KDE and Qt to build consistent applications; writing an application from its initial stage to its full-featured completion; effectively using the Window Manager's Session Management tool; and learning hwo to drag and drop between KDE applications.

Format: Paperback
This book focuses too much on the program the author used as a skeleton/problem-path for the book, and too little on the methodology behind KDE programming. I'd say the reference material that comes with KDevelop would do the user much more good.

Content: good, weight: bad 17 Oct 2001
By "sonofkojak" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is quite well written. Using one application and building
it in the course of a book is a good idea. However, it's a bit thin
(189 pages) and it doesn't address too much content out of the scope of the project under construction. There were a lot of time I'd like to have seen some more in-depth information.

A Good introduction to the K Evironment 7 Jun 2000
By John K. Joachim - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I really can't think of anything negative about this book -- maybe that it's not thorough, but I'd rather credit it for it's introductory treatment of the K environment. If you prefer K over Gnome, then I'd say this text is a NECESSITY. If not, well, it probably WON'T convert you.
Worth keeping on your bookshelf, though ...
