Qt "This article focuses primarily on some technical aspects of Qt, Trolltech's cross-platform C++ toolkit which, as you may know, is the architectural core behind the KDE desktop on Linux. At the end, I show how easy it is to create a simple application without writing a line of code." More here.

moc has a big advantage over all the compile-time signal&slot mechanisms: Introspection. Look at the D-Bus bindings or the language/scripting bindings - interfacing with Qt widgets at runtime is easy. QSignalSpy even shows how to fake signals and slots at runtime.

Plus, it gives you qt_cast, the equivalent to dynamic_cast for Qt objects that reliably works through plugin boundaries.
