Whatever. The main thing you should have interest in it.
If you like 2d games - write simple game like minesweeper and so on.
Maybe you have some stuff that you would like to automatize - at the last end it could be todo list.

I'm just starting out and writing a simple GUI for an app to calculate the area of a circle using a function and including a skeleton menubar and toolbar with just one item. I'm planning on using this a template for more complex programs that I have planned.

It's very simple but includes a number of commonly used wxWidgets.

I think wxwidgets is great and easy to use. But is it still popular and used by developers :roll: ?

Define "popular" ;)

Based on the github and forum activity i'd say the wxWidgets developers and community are quite active. But of course you can't compare it e.g. to something like React ;)
Use the source, Luke!

Hi,
Also, consider that it is completely free and has a very relaxed license, comparing to Qt.

Thank you.
