This is the first in a series of blog posts on QStringView, the std::u16string_view equivalent for Qt. You can read about QStringView in my original post to the Qt development mailing-list, follow its status by tracking the “qstringview” topic on Gerrit and learn about string views in general in Marshall Clow’s CppCon 2015 talk, aptly […]

The last post from my colleague Marc Mutz about deprecating Q_FOREACH caused quite an uproar amongst the Qt developers who follow this blog. I personally feel that this was caused fundamentally by a perceived threat: there is a cost associated to porting away a codebase from a well-known construct (Q_FOREACH) to a new and yet-undiscovered […]
In this article, I will take a look at one of the fundamental concepts introduced in Alex Stepanov and Paul McJones’ seminal book “Elements of Programming” (EoP for short) — that of a (Semi-)Regular Type and Partially-Formed State. Using these, I shall try to derive rules for C++ implementations of what are commonly called “value […]
Android Things is Google’s answer to creating an environment for IoT devices. Take a slimmed down Android build, add some sensor-specific APIs, and provide it on a number of powerful pre-integrated micro-boards and you have a ready-made platform for building a host of upcoming IoT devices. Android Things can take advantage of many existing Android […]

Functional Safety is the term used for systems designed to minimize risk to human health. But there’s a dilemma in today’s tech-driven world. We are more reliant than ever on software to control our planes, trains, cars, and boats, to operate our medical equipment, to process our food, to clean our water, and to power […]
KDAB’s experience with using Qt in the motor industry has shown us that a specifically tailored automotive Qt solution would be very valuable. So, with our partners The Qt Company and Pelagicore we created the Qt Automotive Suite, a comprehensive solution with a licensing model specifically designed for the automotive industry. Read a more in-depth […]
We’re delighted all the QtCon talks have now been released, thanks to the hard work of the folks at KDE. Many KDABians attended QtCon and contributed to the unique new Qt event we co-created in Berlin, September 2016, along with Qt Contributors, KDE Akademy, VideoLan and FSFE. KDAB funded the event upfront and was Gold sponsor at QtCon […]
GammaRay is a high-level runtime introspection tool for Qt applications. In this talk we will look at a number of real-world debugging and profiling problems and how the capabilities provided by GammaRay help you with those. When creating applications we strive to use higher-level frameworks to obtain results quickly and reduce development effort and long-term […]
