What a License Track!

The foss-north 2020 videos are rolling out. This year we’re doing a small experiment, so everything is available at once over at conf.tube, while we roll the videos out gradually at YouTube in an attempt to feed the algorithm (like and subscribe!). This year we had a great set of licensing related talks, and I’d […]

foss-north

It is with great regret that I have to announce that foss-north 2020 has been postponed due to the COVID-19 situation. It will be replaced by a virtual event during the planned dates (March 30-31), and a physical event during the fall. We regret any inconvenience that this causes our guests and sponsors. At the […]

More foss stuff

It is busy days at the moment – but in a positive way. First of all – a huge thanks to everyone who submitted to the Call for Papers for foss-north 2020. We have over 70 hours (!!!) of contents to squeeze into two tracks over two days. As always, it will be hard to […]

gbgcpp – Ribbons using Qt

I’ve been involved in the gbgcpp group, a part of the larger Sweden C++ community, for a couple of years. It is fun to see that there is a lot of C++ developers out there, once you start looking for them. In the next meetup, this Wednesday, there will be both C++ and Qt. The […]

Free software and the wish to be good

The free software movement has recently been going through a lot. From the introduction of Commons Clause, to the resignation of Stallman. It seems like the mood in the air is that now is the time for a redefinition of what free and open source software actually is. My view on this is that free […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
