In a previous blog we demonstrated the most straightforward method to optimize Visual Studio Code for a Qt / C++ environment: simply let the tools do all the work! The example GitHub project we discussed automatically installs both the Microsoft C/C++ and clangd extensions into VS Code. You might wonder why you need both C++ […]
Our colleague Alessandro Ambrosano created a series of blogs (parts 1, 2, and 3) that explain how to get Visual Studio Code configured for Qt development. In that series, Alessandro covers all the details you need to get your VS Code environment configured exactly the way you want it. But there’s a lot there to […]
Today’s blog post is about a small utility class in Qt with a… questionable name: QPointer. If you’re new to Qt, maybe don’t check out QPointer’s documentation just yet, and try to guess what the class does based on its name alone. I’ve seen countless users being very confused by it. Some end up using […]

Not all Qt developers are using Qt Creator as their main IDE for development. Some of us are using other IDEs, like Visual Studio, Visual Studio Code or CLion, per choice or because a project requires it. On Windows, with the MSVC compiler, the debugging experience with Qt 6 can be quite frustrating for some […]
We had a great show this year at our booth 4-302 at Embedded World 2023, where we showcased outstanding performance on cost-effective hardware featuring Qt, C++, Slint, Rust, and Flutter. We know how complex and demanding software development for embedded devices can be. Our experts had you covered with your questions around choosing a framework, […]
