[Interest] A little question about Qt

Hi Andres,

Frankly, I never read a book about Qt and I am a certified Qt developer.
I always found the Qt's documentation sufficient.

Also, Qt moved recently to 5. So if you just start a project, I think it is better to start with this latest version.
But, you will not be able to fin any book about it. Still the Qt's documentation should enough.
