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. We gathered ten speakers and started something that continues to this day. Back then we, the three organizers: Jeremiah, […]

TableView and Qt 5.12 / Qt Creator 4.8

I finally got around to doing the final merge for QmlBook this year. I just merged the chapter on the brand new TableView. This let’s you show 2D data tables in an efficient way. I also merged the version upgrade, so the text should now reflect what is available from Qt 5.12 and be based […]

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 […]

QmlBook gets CI/CD

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 […]

Video Editing for foss-gbg

Editing videos for foss-gbg and foss-north has turned into something that I do on almost a montly basis. I’ve tried a few workflows, but landed in using kdenlive and, when needed, Audacity. I’m not a very advanced audio person, so if kdenlive would incorporate basic noise reduction and a compressor, I stay within one tool. […]

Working on QML Book

Do you remember QML Book? It started as a project between me and Jürgen Bocklage-Ryannel where we tried to fix the problem that there is no QML book out there. Back in the Qt 5.2 days, we spent wrote about a year. Unfortunately, the project has mainly been sitting idle since then. I’ve poked at […]

QML Weather

I recently took some time to develop a photo frame style home automation control panel. The idea is to control some common tasks of my home assistant setup from a panel instead of having to rely on the phone. To hide the panel, it currently act as a photo frame until touched. The build is […]

Complicating Licensing

I’ve recently seen a couple of attempts to present non-open source licensing as almost open source. What I’m talking about is Commons Clause and fair source. This sounds a lot like the failed shared source model promoted by companies such as Microsoft in the early 2000. Yes, I’m looking at you redis and neo4j. What […]

Work v2.0

Returning to work this autumn has a slightly different feel to it as I’m working on getting a new business up and running. This is both rewarding and stressful at once. Strangely enough, it actually felt good to get up early to get to work. The major hurdle during the bootstrapping phase is how to […]
