Version 2.0

60min: QtLocation: features and future

Talk and discussion for QtLocation users and developers


This talk will illustrate the current feature set of QtLocation as well as discussing its current limitations and roadmap for the future.

QtLocation was initially introduced as part of QtMobility.
With Qt5, the various QtMobility components have been progressively incorporated as Qt modules.
QtLocation is the latest addition to Qt.
Qt 5.6.0 is the first Qt5 release to officially include QtLocation as a Qt module, which was previously available only as a tech preview.

This talk will discuss the features of the module, how to use them, as well as how to extend QtLocation via custom plugins.
The current limitations will also be presented, together with our current roadmap for planned improvement and solutions to some of them.

The first part of the talk will be useful for those who have never used QtLocation, or who have had only cursory experience with it.
The second part will be more for those interested in extending QtLocation with own data sources and services, as well as those interested in contributing to QtLocation.
