Kubuntu Tutorials Day is back, and this time it's with special guest
star speakers.

Incase you missed it in previous years (check out the logs, there's
some interesting sessions in there), Kubuntu Tutorials Day is a few
hours of interactive IRC sessions on topics around Kubuntu and KDE
development. If you've always wanted to get started in helping out
Kubuntu or programming in Qt this is the perfect opportunity.

Guest speakers

Johan Thelin, the author of best selling book "Foundations of Qt
Development" will be talking on Start Coding Qt. If you're going to
code Qt, best start by learning from the best.

Alan Alpert from Nokia will be running a session on Introduction to Qt
Quick and QML. Qt Quick is the exciting new way to program, centred
around design rather than code.
