About the speaker

Prashanth has been developing software using Qt since 2001. He bootstrapped and ran a services & products company based on Qt in India for 12 years. Then, he co-founded TERIFLIX, a startup in Bengaluru India focussed on offering private and social screening experiences of films.

Since the pandemic broke, he has been developing Scrite a free and open-source screenwriting app for Linux, Windows and macOS desktops (www.scrite.io). Having used QML for developing the complete UI of Scrite, he is confident that QML is ready for building large desktop apps that would have traditionally been built using Widgets.
