Part 1 So, you’ve just poured your heart and soul into some real-time 3D rendering code and hit render. Wringing your hands in anticipation you wait for the screen to show your marvellous creation. Still… waiting. It says it’s done but, nothing. Well, maybe not nothing but simply darkness. You stare into the deep dark […]
Qt has a long history. The first stable version was released before the first version of C++ was standardized and long before the different C++ compiler vendors started shipping usable implementations of the C++ standard library.
