30min: Wear Qt on your wrist with AsteroidOS

Qt5, OpenEmbedded, libhybris, BlueZ5...


AsteroidOS is a free and open-source smartwatch platform based on OpenEmbedded, libhybris, BlueZ5 and Qt5. This talk will showcase the capabilities of Qt in embedded platforms through the example of the development of this project.

This technical talk will present the usage of Qt inside AsteroidOS. It will briefly introduce the usage of Qt in embedded devices with its integration in OpenEmbedded/Yocto and the usage of QPAs in order to render UIs on top of different graphic stacks.

It will then focus on the different Qt modules that have been used to provide the user experience of the project. The various pieces of software that have been developed or re-used from other projects like NemoMobile will be presented.

As a final note, the talk will explain how to contribute to the project and the willingness to share code between projects.
