The Plan

  • Nokia will provide give-aways (Nokia branded, Qt branded tbd)
  • We will have several N9's for the App Contest.
  • We might be able to make an up-front social media promotion.
  • We have a Raspberry Pi proto to show off Qt 5


We will have a small booth (3sqm) together with the KDE project in Hall 7.2a at stand 106. Preminary Hall plan is here.

Location: OSM, Nokia

Nokia will provide a plasma display (and possibly some furniture)


  • Showcases: If you have an interesting show case that you want to show, please add it to the showcases section.
  • Booth staffers: If you want to man the booth, please enter your name in the below schedule table. We should have at least three people there at all times.
  • Lightning talks: This is your chance to present an interesting topic to the audience on the booth. If you want to give a lightning talk (5-10 minutes), please add yourself. We will scatter the talks throughout the entire time. You can give time preferences. We might even record the talks. Suggested topics:
    • New features in Qt 5
    • Playground projects
