Podcast 106: Shipping | iDeveloper; about RemObjects C# and a lot of other stuff

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/03/13

Listen to Podcast 106: Shipping | iDeveloper.

A few notes:

  • RemObjects C# on iOS is based on LLVM, so I assume the other platforms use that too.
  • Both guys are really busy shipping stuff, and it is hard.

Interessant weetje over zonnepanelen: lagere hellingshoek tegenover verlies capaciteit, tegenover winst door extra panelen: lagere hellingshoek wint altijd.

WITH IS EVIL! (via: Paul Foster – Google+)

Yet another example of somehow who got bitten hard by using the with statement (I decided to give with its own category on my blog).

This time it got shared by Paul Foster on G+ and comes down to this:

Even in unsuspiciously looking code, the wit statement can bite you, especially if you need to do refactoring and (because of that) introduce two names in the same scope.

Or in Paul‘s words:

Whilst upgrading the code to remove the Containers unit (its not supported on NextGen platforms, so I have to make things work with Generics.Collections instead, (bye bye D7 support for this code) and refactor a couple stupidities in my original design (they always creep in, don’t they) I ended up with two class members of the same name.  The with block then looked OK but I was in fact not access the member I thought I was.
