Kitware is involved with Qt in two main areas. First, Kitware is the provider of the CMake (www.cmake.org) build tool which is used to build KDE, the flagship open source Qt project. In addition, Kitware has been using Qt for the ParaView (www.paraview.org) project. ParaView is an open-source, multi-platform data analysis and visualization application. With the recent change in Qt licensing Kitware is also starting to use Qt for many other open source scientific and medical projects. For cross platform C++ GUI development Qt now stands alone as really the only viable choice. This talk will cover the CMake build system, and the impact Qt and Qt derived projects are having on state of the art scientific computation.
