KDE hacker authors Qt book

Filed under
Misc

Core KDE developer Daniel Molkentin has written a book about Trolltech's cross-platform application development toolkit. Published by NoStarch Press, and entitled, "The Book of Qt 4," the work aims to help novice and advanced users write user-friendly Qt applications.

Qt is a mature C++ application development framework designed to let software engineers compile native-looking Linux, Mac, and Windows binaries from a single source code tree. Some of the better-known applications based on Qt include Skype, Google Earth, and Adobe Photoshop Elements. Additionally, Motorola uses an embedded version of Qt -- Qtopia Core (formerly "Qt/Embedded") -- in its Linux-based mobile phones. Qt and Qt/embedded were released under the GPL in 2000.

Qt also underpins KDE.

So, if I were to use Ubuntu on my desktop, I would still choose LTS. Read more

Workflow and efficiency geek talks Drush and Drupal

I started using Drupal because I needed an open source content management system (CMS) to use in several community projects.

At the time I was using a different framework, but I had considered Drupal in the past and knew that I liked it a lot better than Joomla. I convinced them to go with the new Drupal 6 release and converted all of my other projects for consistency. I started working with Drush because I wanted a unified mechanism to work with local and remote sites. My first major contribution to Drush was site aliases and sql-sync in Drush 3. Read more
