It all began with that in Oskolsky Polytechnic College (hereafter OPC), where I studied, it was necessary to hold an open event. Ideas a long time don't was, but then, my class teacher, had the thought that you can do something similar to "Field of Miracles" as an idea to conduct himself "Field of Miracles," failed after failed physical realize drum. There were a few minor bugs that have the same negative impact on this idea.
Without hesitation, remembering that we are a group of programmers, it was decided to use the computer. Here again came to the aid of our leader. Invited to make a crossword puzzle.
After the redistribution of responsibilities - set to work. Some began to make a crossword puzzle, and I hung task is to make software implementation of this crossword. Gritting your teeth - did. I then knew little about programming, and Delphi, which I did not differ outstanding options (it now they will not shine:)). Digress: Delphi - a language to quickly write programs corporate level. By creating a UML-diagram, you can by pressing a button to get the code. Another is the case when the simple (especially novice programmer) have to write programs not because he wants to, and be content with the opportunities at Delphi there. Helps out yet that the one who made the more experienced additional components and shared with others. Who it worked I would understand.
Continue writing in Delphi, I could not :( , for the above mentioned reasons.
Learning from the first year student I am, after many calculations and analysis software market as a whole, the growing global economic crisis, review, familiarity with the language of UML 2.0 - decided to start learning C++, in conjunction with a library of Qt4. Since March, 2009 began to write the this same crossword puzzle to test new tools of development. The first results were impressive! And, May 5, 2010 - released first stable version of "Klest-crossword".
