My first C++ Experience

This weekend I started to evaluate C++. I tried C++ about 18 years ago and I was confused a lot at that time, not only because of C++ but also because Object-oriented programming was new to me at that time. I never had a need for C++ in the past and now I wanted to try some Qt stuff which needs some knowledge of C++.

I believe I will not develop software in C++ in the near future but I must say it has really a lot of nice features. Why I am writing this Blog post not because I am in love with C++ now but because I want to make you aware of a very nice C++ tutorial found at cplusplus.com. The tutorial is written very clear and has examples for everything. It took me just some few hours to understand how C++ works.

As IDE I used Qt Creator since I tried Qt stuff. I don't like the interface but for going on fast without configuration it was very useful to me. If I would start some C++ project I would prefer Anjuta, Code::Blocks or KDevelop.

Many thanks to the authors of that nice tutorial! Well done... ;)

Linspector-NG

I decided some time ago to work on Linspector again. Linspector is a very simple solution for monitoring systems and devices. Since the current codebase does not support Multi-Processer architectures the software needs a complete rewrite. But, I will use the current codebase for prototyping my ideas and will at some time start developing the next generation of Linspector from what I learned during the development process in the past years.

Because I thought my project "scheduled" could take over the job execution part I stopped development of Linspector some time ago. Even if both projects do many similiar tasks they are very different and sharing code between both projects seems not to be a good idea. I will work on both projects from now on and I believe both projects will be useful to me in the future.
