Excellent introduction to Qt,
This review is from: Foundations of Qt Development (Expert's Voice in Open Source) (Paperback)
Overall I find this book very easy to read and an excellent introduction to Qt. Some of the sentences can be a bit difficult to understand at first, and requires a reread, but all in all it is a good effort from my fellow countryman.
The part of the book I was least impressed with was chapter 13 about databases. It could certainly do with a bit more information overall, but the worst part was the complete lack of information about how to get Qt to work with different databases, such as SQL Server or MySQL. The latter requires quite a substantial amount of work to get going - not a particularly difficult task, but it isn't straightforward. I don't expect the author to hold our hands here, but a note mentioning that Qt doesn't have built-in support and a reference to some suitable material would certainly have helped.
I was contemplating giving the book 3 stars, based on the above, but on further thought I upped this to 4 stars. The book did become easier to read after a few chapters (improved proof-reading or just me getting used to the authors writing style?), and in retrospect the niggles above about databases aren't that serious after all.
I therefore wouldn't hesitate to recommend this book to anyone interested in learning Qt programming.
