In the last episode of this blog series we learned about the overall concepts of input methods in Qt, with a look behind the scenes to see how a key press event from the native windowing system travels through the Qt input stack until it appears on screen inside a QLineEdit. In that context, the input method […]
For years now I have been watching the video recordings of talks from various C++ conferences across the globe. As a developer, they are an invaluable source of information and inspiration. I have fond memories of watching GoingNative 2012 in a live stream with some colleagues of mine in our office in Berlin. But, over the years, […]

What is an Input Method and what do we need it for? To answer that question, let’s see what Wikipedia says: “An input method (or input method editor, commonly abbreviated IME) is an operating system component or program that allows any data, such as keyboard strokes or mouse movements, to be received as input.

Qt is a native library at the heart. As a native (C++) library, it already outperforms most higher-level language libraries when it comes to startup performance. But if you’re using native languages, you usually do so because you need to get the most out of the available hardware and being just fast may not be […]
…just think of performance constrained embedded platforms. But how do you make your C++ application faster? This talk will show you how to find bottlenecks in a C++ program using various tools.
by KDAB’s Marc Mutz at Meeting C++ 2014 Abstract: C++11 is now widely available, and so is C++14. Like for users of the language, C++11/14 is a new language for C++ library writers, too. In this talk, we will walk you through the new C++ features that impact class design. We will show guidelines that […]
