GridLayout in Qt Designer

Welcome to our brand new video series about...Qt Widgets! Yes, widgets are still alive and kicking. In the many years we have worked with them, we have gathered quite a number of tips and tricks that we'd love to share with you. Whether it's some handy snippet in C++ or a hidden button in a graphical tool, these suggestions will make your development life considerably easier. In this first video, we will show you a few ways to improve your workflow when using a QGridLayout inside Qt Designer. Sounds simple, doesn't it? Well, there are a few subtleties involved. The example code showcased in this video is available here: https://github.com/KDAB/kdabtv The video is presented by Jesper Pedersen, who started with Qt back when Qt was widgets only and the version was 1.44, which gives him 21 years of experience with Qt. Since 2000 he has taught almost 100 Qt classes, ranging from Qt Widgets to QML. Heck, Jesper even taught a few classes on QTopia Core — Trolltech's initial attempt at creating a phone stack. Today Jesper holds a fancy business title, but that doesn't prevent him from coding both in his job and in his spare time. About KDAB: KDAB offers experienced software experts to help you deliver functional, high-performing and innovative software across embedded, mobile and desktop platforms for projects using C++, Qt, QML/Qt Quick, OpenGL, Qt 3D and more. https://www.kdab.com/software-services KDAB experts regularly take time out to deliver KDAB’s world class training, in-house or at open enrollment courses around the world. We are the market leaders for training in Qt, OpenGL and C++. Contact us to find out more at training@kdab.com or visit our website: https://www.kdab.com/software-services/scheduled-training/ We are about 90 people, located all around the world. Our Head Office is in Sweden and we have other offices in Germany, France, the UK and the USA. https://www.kdab.com/about/contact/

Australia’s dangerous fantasy: diverting population growth to the regions

Australia’s dangerous fantasy: diverting population growth to the regions | Geogrpahy - Spatial Science - Geographic Information Systems | Scoop.it
A century of Australian history shows it won’t work.
Neil Bombardiers insight:

The Grattan Institute's take on population growth in "regional" Australia vs capital cities. Some of the stats they are using look convincing and it certainly does fit a world-wide trend historical trend of populations moving toward urban areas. However, one aspect they do gloss over is the late 00's blip where regional Queensland and WA towns actually grew faster. I believe this highlights that there is a willingness in the general population to relocate IF they are certain of employment.
