Qt is absolutely amazing


  • Banned

    Hello everyone,,
    A long time ago i used to use MFC on windows. It wasn't that great to work with. I am now just starting out with Qt on linux and i have never come across a framework that is so simple and intuitive.

    Also Qt Creator is fantastic.

    Hi and welcome on the forums
    Yes Qt and QtCreator are awesome.

    It also comes with super friendly forum so feel free to ask if you get stuck.
    Good Questions (Qt version, platform, code, expected result) often get you all the help you need.



  • @Jinesh Hear hear. MFC was a low-level pile of torture. I loathed working with MFC. Qt makes MFC look like the Stone Age. Microsoft has come a long way with GUI development tools (WinForms, WPF, the defunct SilverLight), but it's too late. What programmer in his right mind would choose a development platform that does not compile on both Windows and macOS?



  • @Jinesh said in Qt is absolutely amazing:

    MFC

    While swear words like this are not banned, they are frowned upon if used excessively. ;-) (joke)
    Yeah, for me the Windows dev ecosystem is a lot of nope for me as well. Qt is definitely a breath of fresh air. I really like that I can use mingw and msvc as needed.

    Welcome to the forum!



  • @Jinesh beautiful is yes. simple NO.
    Also, Visual studio is way better than Qt Creator. But I'm a big fan of Qt.

  • I started my introduction in qt-3 way back when. Before that I did Xt and xlib programming, using motif and athena widget sets. The short review I did of MFC left me feeling mentally numb and like I lost several IQ points for even attempting to absorb it. I guess in retrospect the win32 programming model was an expected consequence of the state of tech at that time, but I am so glad the tools and architectures have evolved since then...and I still strive to avoid having anything to do wit windoze/.net or any of the other M$ spins on tech they stole and morphed to trap customers with.
