Choosing the right system-on-chip (SoC) is probably your first consideration when designing an embedded product, followed closely by deciding whether to use an off-the-shelf board or design your own. The case for commercial boards in initial designs For the first product in a new line, consider using a commercially available board that features your chosen […]

Stay up-to-date and get inspiration from KDAB’s expert insights into Qt, C++ and OpenGL development.
Our engineers and designers share cutting-edge technology news and ideas with regard to Qt, QML, Qt on Android, OpenGL, Qt 3D, Vulkan, Scalable UIs and more embedded, mobile and desktop-related topics.
When designing an embedded product, there’s a lot riding on those crucial first decisions of choosing a hardware vendor and board. Clearly, the hardware you select must be powerful enough to support your product, a challenging determination given that software is usually still in the planning stages at this point in the process. Plus, planning […]
In the beginning, there was C. That sentence actually could serve as the introduction to a multitude of blog posts, all of which would come to the conclusion “legacy programming conventions are terrible, but realistically we can’t throw everything out and start over from scratch”. However, today we will merely be looking at two ways […]
We’re pleased to announce the release of KDSoap version 2.2.0, an update that brings new enhancements to improve both the general build system and client-side functionality. What is KDSoap? KDSoap, a SOAP (“Simple Object Access Protocol“) component rooted in Qt, serves as an essential tool for both client-side and server-side operations. Tailored for C++ programmers […]
This article walks through an implementation using C++11 or later, Qt 6.5 or later for WebAssembly (multithreaded), and CMake. The browser environment used was Mozilla Firefox 119.0.1 (64-bit) provided by the Mozilla Firefox snap package for Ubuntu. Overview & Motivation Lately, I’ve been working on a small Qt Widgets project to help manage some weekly […]
Showing how to derive the projection matrix, this second part of the series teaches how to create perspective projection matrices for Vulkan and adapt them to your needs.
We’re happy to announce KDDockWidgets version 2.0, a major milestone that brings many improvements and architectural enhancements to our powerful docking library. KDDockWidgets is a versatile framework for custom-tailored docking systems in Qt written by KDAB’s Sérgio Martins. For more information about its rich set of features, take a gander at its GitHub repository. What […]
For quite some time, I have been bothered by this thought: Individual programming languages (C++, Rust, Go, etc.) are traditionally viewed as walled gardens. If your main() function is written in C++, you had better find yourself C++ libraries like Qt to build the rest of your codebase with. Do you want to use Flutter […]
We just released CXX-Qt version 0.6! CXX-Qt is a set of Rust crates for creating bidirectional Rust ⇄ C++ bindings with Qt. It can be used to integrate Rust into C++ applications using CMake or build Rust applications with Cargo. CXX-Qt provides tools for implementing QObject subclasses in Rust that can be used from C++, […]
This post explains the difference between OpenGL and Vulkan transformations and how to adapt code to get the desired results, plus actually understanding what's going on.
