There's confusion and transition in C++ GUI programming right now: let's discuss

  • No location was chosen

  • I don't know what's up with C++ GUI platforms, but everything seems to be in transition. The state of C++ GUI development right now runs from the confused (the recent Qt handoff between Nokia and Microsoft), the bizarre (trying to integrate Qt and Code::Blocks, for example), and the downright comical (take a look at SmartWin's home page outside of sourceforge: Really.) My sense in the past has been that this meetup group doesn't focus a great deal on GUI stuff, but I think it's time for a meeting to try and sort this all out. Since things are a little up in the air -- (for example if an opensource foundation "forks" Qt, as some have suggested, will they rethink the whole moc and Signal/Slots mechanisms since Signal/Slots can be implemented with C++11 templates, as some have noted? Or will wxWidgets take the initiative to build their "ecosystem" to rival the range of Qt modules and fill a potential void left by Qt confusion?) -- this at least gives developers and companies a chance to influence what comes next. Like say, for example, 10gen starts to get really active in either Qt or WxW and cooks up new markets for MongoDB. (Maybe a Mongo plugin for Code::Blocks which could merge with the buggy Qt one and also improve it by using an embedded Mongo database for build and source info.)

    We don't have a presenter or a meeting space for this event so I'm going to go ahead and cancel. We'll get something else on the schedule soon!

    Sorry for setting the date, I wasn't aware that my suggestion would appear as official date right away (instead of maybe notifying an organizer). I'm just a visitor (if I can come, that is). Please feel free to change/remove the date.

    Depending on group settings, Meetup sometimes lets members suggest events without the knowledge or approval of the Meetup Group's organizer team. There are no organizers / assistant organizers of this Meetup Group RSVP'ed.

    Is anybody responsible for this event? Has anybody committed to giving a presentation? Does anybody have realistic plans to arrange a venue? Isn't 6pm a bit early?
