If you live in Poland, Germany or France, you may be interested to check out an article of mine about wxWidgets in Software Developer's Journal and its sister magazines. The original English article will be published in SDJ's electronic-only English magazine in November.

Magazine details:

* Poland: Software Developer's Journal, October issue
* France: Programmation Sous Linux, November/December issue
* Germany: Programmieren Unter Linux, November/December issue

The cover story on each magazine is about "portable" GUIs and mention, in this order: "wxWidgets, Qt4, C++/Tk, IUP."

You can view the cover of the Polish version here:

The articles provide a basic overview of wxWidgets, complete with a working code example and screenshots on all three major operating systems, though some of the shots were omitted from the German and French magazines. The article also makes mention of the book, as well as my own software, BitWise IM. Unfortunately, none of the accompanying CDs included wxWidgets even though some included Qt and C++/Tk.

I am very pleased with how the articles turned out, both on a personal achievement level and for their great publicity value for wxWidgets!
