How to learn QML?

Hello everyone,

I need to customize an appstudio app to allow for offline editing. Looking through the esri help it looks like this means having a standard appstudio license and learning either C++ or QML. QML appears to be the faster option to learn (quicker, easier, more seductive) but I have no idea where to get started. There is plenty of documentation out there, but these all just include code samples with a brief "here's what you're looking at." I haven't been able to find a resource for getting started from a beginners standpoint. Is there a more established language I could learn first that would speed me on my way? JavaScript? I learned python some time ago and have been writing my own tools, but this looks like an entirely different animal. Thanks,

Here is a generic website that uses the same module (as far as I can tell) as AppStudio:

First Steps with QML | Qt 5.7 

Though, similar and more in depth information can be found here:

QML and Esri's QML API—ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Qt | ArcGIS for Developers

Hi Luke,

You need a standard license for AppStudio to perform edits and build your app for distribution purpose. For offline editing you can refer to our sample "Local geodatabase editing". 

Also I would recommend you to refer this wiki link for learning QML and Runtime concepts used in AppStudio applications.

Home · Esri/arcgis-appstudio-samples Wiki · GitHub 

I hope this helps.
