I’m around! I’ve been dealing with some things in real life so it has taken me a great deal of time. Most of why I have been away has been about my health, the other is a moderate burnt out that I’ve managed to get under control.
I’m back to reading Qt documentations. I’ve been fairly active reading Qt
Interest mailing list for quite some time, and glancing over the tickets of issues that affect me (like zlib.h not found can’t compile in Windows in general). I’m still pushing myself to learn C++, I think by now “learning” seems like an odd word to use, yet appropriate if you use other facilities provided by C++.
Most of what I’ve programmed have been fairly straightforward. My application is still going strong, just a while ago I managed to commit and push a few pending changes.
Qt 5.6 seems to be the definitive version I will be using mostly because it’s the version that will contain complete WinRT support. To me it’s very important to be able to provide my application through different platforms. At the same time Qt doesn’t exactly make it easy if we start talking about in-app purchases that many applications integrate.
I’ve managed to get a copy of Effective C++ by Scott Meyers so I have that going for me. All in all a new round is about to start for me to finish my application and finally release it.
