  18. 18. Case Studies CAD for fashion designers ( Python | PyQt | Qt ) Medical diagnosis appliation ( Python | PyQt | Qt widget ) Domotic Control Panel ( C++ | Qt )
  19. 19. CAD for fashion designers (1/2) We provide software consulting for an Italian company, leader in a particular field of fashion design. One of them is a CAD almost entirely written in Python, which uses PyQt to fully take advance of the Qt framework. Effort: 50 man/months (and running...)
  20. 20. CAD for fashion designers (2/2) Heavily customized UI ● Best experience possible for designer: Comply to several (often odd) habits. ● Qt gives us the flexibility to tweak the UI as we wish, keeping the code maintainable. Full OpenGL acceleration ● Drawing canvas are accelerated with OpenGL (QtOpenGL). ● Some parts (eg: texts) use QPainter over OpenGL  
  21. 21. Medical diagnosis application (1/2) Customer needed to bundle an application with the new version of their flagship product. Introducing PyQt allowed us to complete the first prototype of the application within one month from starting from scratch, and to deliver the final version after just two months later.
  22. 22. Medical diagnosis application (2/2) Database interaction ● We exploited Qt widgets' flexible API to produce a thin Python layer that handles reading and writing values from/to DB. Full i18n support ● Application is deployed in several markets (including Korean and Turkish ones) ● Usage of Qt made adding i18n support trivial.
  23. 23. Domotic Control Panel (1/2) We provide software consulting for a big domotic Italian corporate. The product is developed in C++ and the GUI is designed with Qt. It runs on a custom ARM-based board, with Linux.
  24. 24. Domotic Control Panel (2/2) Home control ● The system controls all the house: lights, security, windows, home theater Touch screen interface ● With the easy-to-use interface (realized with a touch screen device integrated with Qt) the user can control all sensors and actuators in the house i18n ● The user interface is multi language and supports European, Chinese and Arabic languages
