Good Video to get more Information about Programming are this


Beaglebone: LCD Touchscreen GUI Applications for Embedded Linux - YouTube


Beaglebone: Qt Creator for C++ ARM Embedded Linux Development - YouTube


Beaglebone: Example Qt Embedded Linux Application - YouTube


It is for Beagelbone but for programming Qt it is a good start.
