FRUCT regularly organizes trainings, contests, promo lectures and conference sessions designated to Qt in Russia and Finland. As a result one can see significant increase in a number of active developers in the region, growth of the awareness rating about Qt among students and new applications done on Qt. Thanks to positive altitude of Russian developers, significant work done Digia, Nokia, FRUCT and many enthusiasts, nowadays Russia has one of the world best ecosystems for community driven development of Qt. FRUCT Association gave birth to a number of developer startups and some of them are Qt-oriented and have strong competences in the field. We are interested in a number of Qt development projects, e.g., to make Qt available on Smart TVs and other smart systems and looking for partners to implement these ideas.
