Writing applications in modern C++ and Qt

I started writing my own Content Managment System for Meeting C++ last year. One of the goals for this project is to seperate the Qt GUI code from the layer that handles the logic and data storage, written in modern C++ and boost. This presentation will focus on my usage of modern C++ to implement the CMS.

Today my CMS has a little bit more then 10k loc, uses boost extensively and has a Qt GUI as the user facing frontend. In this talk I will focus on how boost powers the application and where I had to find my own solutions. I knew that with boostache there is a library for text templates, which later also inspired me to write a generic layer to use JSON for import and data storage in my CMS. The resulting generic_json library is currently a prototype, but a very interesting idea: uniting several json libraries into one interface. This way my own code is not hard wired to a specific JSON library.
