And another book is out!

I’m excited to announce that my new book, Application Development with Qt Creator, is now available for sale at Packt and available for pre-order at Amazon!

I love Qt — it is one of the best frameworks I’ve ever worked with for any kind of development in C++. I was excited when Packt approached me to write a mini-guide on getting started with Qt Creator, Qt’s cross-platform IDE. As written, the book covers everything you need to know to get started using Qt Creator, from installing the IDE to compiling, editing, debugging, optimization, and localization. There’s also a chapter on using Qt for mobile development on Android.

This book is aimed at developers new to Qt and IDEs in general. If you’re just getting started programming, maybe studying on your own or taking a college course, you’ll want a copy.

A new book is out!

I am excited to say that as I write this, the new book I’ve written with Carmen Au is available. In Microsoft Mapping: Geospatial Development with Bing Maps and C#, Carmen and I give you a soup-to-nuts introduction to everything you need to know about applying Microsoft technologies for mapping and geospatial applications. We talk about the Bing Maps API, of course, in all its forms, but we also give you a whirlwind tour of Azure, including SQL Azure’s geospatial extensions, and Microsoft Power Map as well. I’ve worked with Carmen for almost three years now, and this collaboration with her is the one I’m most excited about.

I hope you’ll check it out!
