No video of the event yet, sorry!
Qt has more than 20 years of development history, but today it still is the best option for developing cross platform applications that feel modern and behave in a performant way.
Qt allows not only to develop once and run on multiple platforms and environments, but also to pivot fast: do you need 2D graphics, or 3D? Or a mix of both? Do you need to support touch in addition to more traditional mouse and keyboard? No problem, it's all there.
Qt not only provides UI components but also a big quantity of possibilities: network, speech, location, etc.
Also the Qt ecosystem is very vibrant providing tools to help find out the occasional bug you may end up coding ;).
