Award for the most gratuitous use of the word “QAbstractItemModel” in a serious presentation

It seems I’m one of the recipients of the first annual NQDF award for outstanding achievement in the field of excellence. It seems the phone will be delivered in a few weeks, but they haven’t yet revealed when the big award ceremony is, or when I will get money, power, fame and influence as a result. I’ll be patient, but until then, thanks for the phone!

The schedule for CampKDE was published last week. I’ll be giving a talk on the challenges the Akonadi team faced in using the Qt Model View framework to implement the posted KDE PIM applications and how it results in reusable components and allows a lot of scope for innovation. I have been blogging on the subject for some time now, but there will be a lot of new content in the presentation that I haven’t covered here yet which is relevant to all users of Qt Model/View – not just Akonadi and not just KDE. Registration is still open if you want to come to attend.

By the way, I didn’t know this until just now. Very funny.

    I’ve read about you on the Qt blog and wondered – what exactly have you changed in QAbstractItemModel?
