foss-north 2019 – it is happening

Pinching my arm, to ensure that this is real. It feels surreal that we’ve gone from seven speakers to an amazing 33 in four years. This years experiments are the training day, and community day. Looking at the various RSVPs for the community day, it looks like we’ll be 130+ attendees. For the conference days […]

foss-north 2019: Community Day

I don’t dare to count the days until foss-north 2019, but it is very soon. One of the changes to this year is that we expand the conference with an additional community day. The idea with the community day here is that we arrange for conference rooms all across town and invite open source projects […]

Get your tickets while they’re hot!

TL;DR; Get your tickets from here! For the fourth year running, foss-north is taking place. Now bigger than ever. It all started as a one day conference in a room with too much people in it.

TableView and Qt 5.12 / Qt Creator 4.8

Merging QmlBook Contents

What better way to spend a lazy Christmas day than to merge some of the new chapters to the QmlBook? Since having updated the CI system, there is a bit of manual merging forth and back to get each new piece of contents on-line. Specifically, rebase my fork’s master to upstream/master, then rebase my working […]

Christmas is coming and a long and exciting fall is coming to and end. One of my projects during this fall has been to update the QmlBook. This was made possible by The Qt Company who generously stepped in and sponsored my work on this – thank you all! I’ve worked away during the fall […]
