Good question, would it make sense if I said that I think in abstract interconnected visuals?
What you put together is excellent
I think I started out decently, it works until we hit the DBA Features paragraph were I trip myself up in a bad case of featuritis - for a while I just present a bunch of pictures, without saing much.
In the initial part of the 'The low level Accessor and Reader classes' I kind of get back on track, but then, as Paul Watt mentions, the code listings become too massive with too little guidance from me about why this should be interesting enough to put into the article.
This discussion has given me a few things to think about - and that people here on the forum are both positive and providing the kind of feedback I was looking for is something I appreciate.
You're getting a way better response than I've had for the QOR series so far. Not to say that you don't deserve it to be better. Im mobile today so I haven't read the article.
I think that the response level has a lot do do with the number of people already using a particular technology who are looking for answers and hit your article by search rather than the quality of the article itself.

Thanks for your thoughts Matthew. I think some of the responses I've gotten point to areas in the article that definitely falls below par, and I've realized that I've more or less left out the point I was trying to make: Code generators are an essential part of the programmers tool chest.
Ive never met one that can round trip C++ with any utility at all
I've been creating tools to automate various aspects of projects I've been involved with for a long time, and it has been particularly useful when I've worked on integrating different systems and technologies.
I read it and it looks really great! Only thing I can think of is maybe a little bit more writing in detail between the screen shots. There are several places where there is just quick one sentence descriptive about the screenshots, perhaps add some filler information even if it might seem insignificant. But other than that, it is a really well done article.

Just seen an article in a german newpaper with a link to this video[^].
The prrojectt is financed by crowd-funding, and so far the demo gameplay is looking good.
IMO this can be THE upcoming new game of 2014. And it has potential to replace SimCity.
There is an old game which is already almost exactly the same as this. Although it has older graphics without the photo-realism of this one, the actual game-play appears almost identical.
The old game was called Transport Tycoon and went out of production a few years back but was so popular that this[^] started up to continue the good work.
I thoroughly enjoyed playing the original game and discovered the open-source version a couple of years back - which is fantastic! I am still playing it occasionally - in fact I shall start it up when I get home from work tonight!
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
a) Adria Richards (a developer evangelist at SendGrid with a large Twitter following) attends python conference
b) Two devs behind her are joking. They make some pretty tame innuendos about "forking" repositories and big dongles. AFAICT not aimed at the above, or even intended to be heard by her.
c) She photographs them and Twitters what they are up to.
d) They Get fired (one had a kid for god's sake)
e) SendGrid fires Adria due to the way she handled the jokers by exposing them publically
