Qt, the application framework from Qt Software is written as Qt (capital Q). It is not written as QT (capital Q, capital T). QT can refer to a lot of other things, e.g. Apple QuickTime.
The official pronunciation of Qt is "cute". It is not pronounced as "cue tea".
How about cutie? =)
Pronouncing as "cute" is hard to do when you learned it as "cue tea" and used it like that in the past 8 years. Yeah, I know "cute" wasn't invented today, still ... hard to switch.
'The official pronunciation of Qt is "cute". It is not pronounced as "cue tea".'Maybe in english that is, in Swedish I have always prononouced the letters by themselves (and I'm not trying to write how that sounds in swedish;-).There was some comments (and bashing) on the dot about this a while ago.
don`t try to make them speak as cute.in brazil, everybody speaks the sound of the letter. it`s easyer, it`s faster, and it`s what people that never heard of `cute` will do. if they want Qt to be named `cute`, it`s better to change the name of the software to `ct`.
As a commercial Qt developer, it is practically suicide saying you program in cute. That simply doesn't fly with management, therefore most developers revert to saying Q T. (in the US at least)
Pronunciation police attack!:(
With out the pronunciation "cute", you don't get clever names like the "Cute(/Qt) Assistant". Who wouldn't want a cute assistant?
I always say Q-t. 'Cute' makes me cringe and is hard to take seriously.
But it's so cute!
