    C++ and Qt5

    I have decided to try to learn C++ once more.

    I am thinking of making a small GUI Utility and want to make sure that Qt5.9 is still considered an good "C++" GUI choice?

    And, is the code in the Qt5 examples considered good C++ code?

    Edit: Other than Qt-creater is there a good set of tools to consider using?

    There are lots of IDEs that include Qt support, so you're not limited to only QtCreator. In my opinion, Qt is the only worthwhile C++ GUI framework. There are others that are decent, but they are far from the level of completeness and polish that Qt has. The code in the examples is as good as the person writing it. In the official examples, I haven't seen anything glaringly wrong, but Qt was behind modern standards for a while, so that can show through in examples that haven't been updated recently. I believe that they have finally caught up though, and current C++ standards are supported.

    What can this thing be that I found?
