Qt QuickStart: An Intensive Introduction to Qt
This intensive introduction to Qt will help developers who are already 
using Qt get the most out of it. It will also help those who are 
considering using Qt in their next project make an informed decision. 
The topics to be covered include:

* Intro to the Qt Framework
* Using signals and slots
* Layout managers vs. container widgets
* Turbo coding new widgets: handling mouse, keyboard, and screen events
* Advanced graphics using drawing primitives
* Application control center: main windows, menus, toolbars, and actions
* Introduction to Qt containers

The Graphics View Framework:
Qt's Graphics View provides a higher level of graphical abstraction and 
reuse than QPainter alone. It can efficiently manage a large number of 
standard and custom graphic items, with support for zooming, 
transformations and animation. The topics in this seminar include:

*Structured Drawing
*The Graphics View Framework
*Creating Items

Using Qt WebKit
WebKit is an open source web browser engine. Using Qt WebKit, developers 
can maintain complete control over the browser environment, and blend 
web, local content and services in a single rich application. The topics 
in this seminar include:

*WebKit Overview
*Network Access
*Requests and Cookies
*Qt WebKit Architecture
*Pages and Frames
*History and Settings
*Beyond the Web Browser
