Qt (thx to the team which developed QtQuickControls2) has helped me to 
help my customers to find a way from BlackBerry10 to Android / iOS and 
last years I developed some very ambitious multi-platform business apps 
in different domains. Qt enables me as an independent software developer 
to do my work.
