Writing a small voting tool in Qt

I've just written this afternoon a small tool for the talk-vote for Meeting C++ 2014. As the call for papers ends on Sunday, the voting comes closer. Last year only a few people on the program committee could vote, this year its going to be around 300. This is 10 times more then last year. In this way I want to give the audience a chance to influence the program.

The Google Summer of Code is for a lot of open source projects an important opportunity to improve and extend their code base, and in 2014 it happens for the 10th time!

I've written earlier this year about smart pointers in C++, today I just would like to write a little more about shared_ptr. Especially about addiction to shared_ptr, and why you should use unique_ptr in C++11.
