Qt Centre Programming Contest 2008 - Finalists

So, the judging process has finally reached its first milestone - six finalists have been chosen. Those of you who visited FSCONS on Friday know them - to the rest of the world - the announcement is up now (yes - I know - lateish).

So, here they are, in no particular order, the finalists of this years contest:


“A simple, yet complete and easy to use application for downloading Flash movies from YouTube and similar sites and for converting them to other, more usable formats. It uses ffmpeg to do the conversion.”


“Allows users to write AJAX-enabled web applications in C++. It features built-in HTTP server and the application code looks almost
like Qt app.”


“An attractive alternative menu implementation for KDE 4 with clickless interface. You can drag the icon list to your desktop.”

WebIssues Client

“Qt-based client for an issue tracker written in PHP. Nice looking, complete and documented.”


“Frees the signal and slot mechanism from both the process and the actual computer. This opens a range of possibilities for Qt applications.”


“An plugin based communications application. Allows rich media sharing with a beautiful user interface.”

On behalf of everyone working hard at QtCentre I'd like to say thank you to all the contestants, all the judges, our great sponsors and everybody using the site. Thank you!

whaaa, cool! I esp like the xVideoServiceThief, but Quartica is nice too. I'd love to hear more about what InterProcessSignalPropagator could do for Qt apps & developers...

Nice. I'm a Lancelot user.

That quartica app looks very interesting. I wonder where i could get a .deb from...

So those are just six best projects?
When categories classification will be published?

We will try to get that sorted out during the upcoming week.

QtWui seems a ripoff from Wt, a long existing open source project for exactly the same thing. Even the example QtWui uses (a hangman game) is exactly the same.

See http://www.webtoolkit.eu/wt for a link to the original project.

Thank you - I have passed that info onto the team that judged that application.

Yes, but just 6 finalists just means that the other applications was not so cool? Why the last year there was more finalists? One from each category? Is there a specific reason?

QtWui is not the same thing as Wt, it's actually based on Qt whereas Wt only offers a similar API for its widgets.

That said, I can't judge whether the examples are ripped off.

According to the code available on
The hangman example seems different from the Wt's one.
For example, in QtWui the image is rendered on demand in the program, in Wt they are static.
The two projects seem to follow the same objective but the implementation of QtWui is different.

We're waiting for some news...

Sorry, we're working on it. All the moderators at QtC are busy, so things sometimes (usually?) takes longer than we wish?
