resumable functions - async and await

While I did my series about the papers for Bristol, there was one paper, which I personally found a bit weird. This paper was about resumable functions, and at that time it was just another paper full of ideas for C++ to me...

Releasing Boost Dependency Analyzer 1.1

C++ & π

An introduction into Qt

The last 3 weeks I've been busy with teaching Qt. Each monday I was doing an one on one introductory course, from Qt Core to Qt XML. So, for a few weeks I was very busy with Qt, preparing for Mondays but also looking into things, how should this or that be done. With this course, my concept of teaching Qt has become reality, but I'd like to share my views on Qt with you, and give you an overview over Qt.

A look at Qt 5.1

With Qt5.1 the 5.x branch of Qt is ready for production, and with 5.2 expected at the end of 2013, ready to rollout to Android and iOS.

Anti Pattern: the need to call a function

Every now and then I see this pattern coming around: the NEED to call a function. After you're done, you have to call cleanUpObjects() or endInsertItems() in some insane API. For me this is often an anti pattern, and sometimes its because the chosen design forces you to do so. If its up to you to design a system, maybe you should think about ways to avoid this, but that's a different topic. Today I just wanna rant about...

The Bristol Papers & the state of C++

A follow up on the series about the papers for the Bristol Meeting. I'll try to give a little look at C++14, it is slowly taking shape. But as the Meeting is still going on, there are a lot of pending details missing to put up the facts for C++14.

A look at C++14 and beyond: Papers Part 4

This is the 4th and last part about the Pre-Bristol mailing and its papers. This series has given me a good overview, what is up in the future in C++. Still, somethings are missing, not all will come to shine in this series. I have no papers with actual proposals skipped, but...

C++1y: Move & Copy Destructors

A special blog entry about a new idea for C++. While reading a lot of proposals, I did not have the time to prepare a proposal for Bristol about this, but probably will do so for the C++ Committee Meeting in Fall at Chicago.

A look at C++14: Papers Part I

This is the first Part of n, or lets say many entries in this blog. In total I hope to be able to cover most papers in 3-4 Blogposts, giving the reader an overview over the suggestions and changes for C++ at the coming C++ Committee Meeting in April.

Generating a talk database front end for Qt5 from SQL

With the announcement of this years Meeting C++ conference, it came to my mind that I will need this time a local Database for the talks, which later is able to export the talks for being rated by the program committee. A while back in 2010, I had finished the work on a program, which could generate C++ Code for Databases. I decided it was time to put this old project to the test.

Recording videos with Qt5

I've started in February a little series about Qt5, and started with implementing a simple MP3 player with Qt5 Multimedia APIs. While I loved the thought of having a simple, multiplatform MP3 player written in Qt5, it was not the original reason to take a look into Qt5 Multimedia capabilites...
