HELSINKI, FINLAND and SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 5, 2016) - Later this month The Qt Company (HEX: QTCOM), which provides a cross-platform framework for companies to write their applications only once, yet run them anywhere and on any device, will host its 13th annual Qt World Summit in San Francisco, CA. At Qt World Summit 2016, business leaders, software developers, project managers and other members of the Qt global community will discuss the latest trends, market opportunities, technological advancements and customer stories in the Internet of Things (IoT) industry. The event will be held at Pier 27 in San Francisco from October 18-20, 2016.

This year's Qt World Summit will feature an opening keynote by Kevin Kelly, maverick at large and author at WIRED Magazine, which will focus on the ever-growing impact IoT has and will continue to have on our everyday lives. NASA scientist Stephen Casner will discuss the intricacies and challenges of striking the balance between human effort and technological automation in his evening keynote. Josh Clark, UX strategist and author at Big Medium, will conclude the first day of the summit by delving into why designing for the IoT is less of a challenge of technology than imagination. Also, AMD's Andrej Zdravkovic will share details on how AMD used Qt technology to introduce a brand new user experience and interface for their graphics control panel. Finally, Lars Knoll, Qt CTO and Qt Project Chief Maintainer, will deliver the summit's final keynote by discussing the future of Qt technology, including details on the brand new Qt Lite Project.
