Interested in expanding your C++ code to have an amazing
User Interface that can be run on Linux, Windows and Mac?
Well, Jeff Alstadt will give you an introduction to the Qt
framework which allows you to code less and be more
productive. Qt is 20-year-old UI framework that is designed
with C++. The presentation will include an introduction to
the Qt Event System, Qt Signals and Slots concept, and a
demo of building a simple Qt application.
Prior to the main event, the Axiom Group (http://axmgrp.com),formerly known as WWFIRS, will be providing a pizza dinner.
In addition to the technical presentation, we shall be
giving away more than 300 dollars' worth of C++ books,
all published in 2012 or 2013, donated to our group by
publishers hoping to encourage sales by giving away free
samples of their product.
We shall also need to approve formally the proposed by-laws
for our organization (if you haven't yet voted, please do
so now -- click More -> Polls on the home page menu).
