Qt has quietly rolled out the Qt Developer Network in a hope to get developers on board. Still in beta, the new site offers such “standard for developer sites” content as blogs, wiki, forums and FAQs. From the mentioned blogs, we learn that future plans include Ovi account integration, groups, eLearning content, books section and videos.
It is a somewhat different approach taken by Nokia (owner of Qt) to make a separate site — i.e. not part of Forum Nokia — though it’s still on Nokia’s domain. In that sense it might work for their “attract developers” plans, as I can hardly imagine other Symbian and MeeGo licensees like Sony Ericsson linking to an article on a site that is clearly Nokia branded like Forum Nokia.
As you probably know, Nokia has high hopes for the Qt platform, as it’s made to work on top of two platforms they support – Symbian and MeeGo. In addition, Qt can also work on smartphones running other operating systems, but that’s another story…
