Posted in Qt Jambi

A common question I get when I’m doing talks on Qt Jambi is how well it plays with other toolkits, specifically Swing and AWT. There’s a lot of code out there written in either or both, and people who want to port their projects to Jambi or build new components on top of existing legacy […]

I’m trying to get my presentations for Saturday’s Akademy conference ready, which is going really well. Let me rephrase – it’s not going well, but I tremendously enjoy pressure and cookies.
