Introducing wxMatisse

Towards the end of a previous post I’ve exposed my thought of a wxWidgets plugin for NetBeans, more specifically, a plugin for C++ wxWidgets. If you have followed the tutorial through, you’ve probably realized how difficult it is to set up wxWidgets to be used on Windows using NetBeans. Even after the environment is completely configured, you still lack the power of tools like Matisse to prototype your frames. For now, a simple tool will address this problem: it’s called wxMatisse. wxMatisse is a tool that uses windows created by Matisse to create equivalent windows in C++ wxWidgets.

The training we lack

A while ago I’ve posted my thoughts about the implications of work experience demands; to put it briefly, work experience does not guarantee qualification, as this experience follows the business agenda of the company where you work, which may be repetitive, random, and probably insufficient. At the same time, home experience, which can happen in a systematic manner, away from such influence, is rarely considered. In any case, it is hard to measure a kind of knowledge that often changes fast. The lack of such measures leads the industry to sometimes adopt esoteric means to assess qualification.
