C++11 and boost

Some parts of the Standard Library in C++11 are predated in boost. When playing around with C++11, you get used to using some parts in the Standard Library that are used in C++03 with their boost counterpart. Also, there is some libraries now occuring, which are C++11 based, so interfacing with either boost or C++11 code is soon an issue.

C++ Papers for Chicago: Part 4 - Library, Network, Reflection and C++14

This is the fourth and last part of the series, which will finalize the Chicago papers for C++14 and beyond. It was again fun reading all the papers, but a lot less papers this time. While writing those lines C++14 is close to its final ways, it seems that the Chicago Meeting is really getting close...

Generic Programming: A personal motivation

Moments of enlightenment are rare. When musing about my talk on this year's Meeting C++ conference, I vividly remembered having of those moments in early 1996 when I came across the HP technical report written by Alexander Stepanov and Meng Lee describing the design of the STL.

Revisiting the BlackBerry 10 NDK

The last few weeks I did look again at the BlackBerry 10 NDK, as a client had asked for help and training. I offered to adapt my Qt Introduction course to the BlackBerry plattform, and offered my advice and expierence from my introduction series for BB10, which I published earlier this year on YouTube...

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...

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.

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...
