GUI-Programming and C++
The first group requests have started coming in. To get your name on the list of groups, do as described in the project description and send a request to me by Friday, March 5th. Final set of groups will be announced Monday, March 8th.
The GUI-Programming and C++ course is a bachelor-level course. You will learn how to create Graphical User Interfaces (GUI) using the C++ programming language with the Qt framework.
The first lecture will be on Monday, 4th of January 2010 at 09:30 in room P35-PH461. Subsequent lectures will be held weekly on Mondays at the same time and place.
As a new feature, I will try out using google moderator, where you can post questions. I will try to answer some of the most popular questions in class. Go to Google moderator for this class and post your questions, or vote on one that someone else has posted.
I do not guarantee that I will answer any or all of the questions. Please keep the questions relevant and to the topic. I reserve the right to select the questions to answer, and to delete anything I find inappropriate.
This is a tentative semester schedule. Topics may change or be moved. The dates for the mandatory assignments are fixed.

Technically, neither of these books are required, but I will highly recommend that you acquire C++ GUI Programming with Qt4. Any C++ book will do, but I think Programming: Principles and Practice Using C++ is good.

These books are also good books. They have different strengths and weaknesses, but all offer something for the aspiring C/C++ programmer.
