I just watched the 2nd Launch Webinar Today for Delphi XE6, C++Builder XE6 and RAD Studio XE6.

Below my signature is the Q&A of it. A whole lot of them (:

Great Android Activity/Fragment lifecycle chart (Steve Pomeroy – Google+)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/04/16

Thanks a lot Steve Pomeroy! And shame on me for finding out (through Michael Panzer, thanks for your notification) this chart only today (he published this chart on 2013-08-20).

Steve’s quote on it:

After struggling with trying to figure out how various pieces fit together, I’ve done some research and put together the complete Android Activity/Fragment lifecycle chart. This has two parallel lifecycles (activities and fragments) which are organized vertically by time. Lifecycle stages will occur in the vertical order in which they’re displayed, across activities and fragments. In this way, you can see how your fragments interact with your activities.

In addition to the attached image, I’ve also got an SVG: http://staticfree.info/~steve/complete_android_fragment_lifecycle.svg which is suitable for printing.

If this is missing lifecycle steps or is inaccurate in any way, let me know so I can update it!

Note: there is also a large bitmap of the chart.

c# – Is there a library that gets the media type and subtype out of a HttpWebResponse/WebResponse ContentType? – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/04/16

Just asked this on SO: C# – Is there a library that gets the media type and subtype out of a HttpWebResponse/WebResponse ContentType?.

Anyone here or at G+ that has a hint?

The ContentType property of (Http)WebResponse maps to the HTTP/1.1 Content-Type which is a Media-Type that contains a type/subtype optionally followed by parameters which are attribute=value pairs.

I’m mainly interested in the type/subtype and the charset parameter.

The charset is mapped from HttpWebRequest.CharacterSet.

Is there a library that just retrieves the media type/subtype of the ContentType?

April 2014 Project of the Month, Free Pascal | SourceForge Community Blog

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/04/16

Thanks Olivier SCHWAB for pointing me to this nice interview with Florian Klämpfl on SourceForge about April 2014 Project of the Month, Free Pascal | SourceForge Community Blog.

Two things I didn’t know yet:

  • FreePascal started in the Turbo Pascal era (the first version was before Delphi 1.0 got released) as a 32-bit compiler project.
  • FreePascal 3.0 will support jvm output (like Oxygene does).

Besides Florian, there are quite a few more people on the FreePascal team. I met most of them at last years PasCon: really nice guys.

Introduction to A*: http://stanford.io/1gze9d7 – awesome multi-page rewarding read (via: Ilya Grigorik – Google+)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/04/16

Today, Ilya Grigorik wrote a nice G+ entry with this pointer:

Introduction to A*: http://stanford.io/1gze9d7 – awesome hands-on overview of the A* pathfinding algorithm. Long but rewarding read.

Well, the long read is indeed long, and on my stack of things to read.

Ever since the early 1990s when the original DOS version of NS Reisplanner came out (with a really bad algorithm for finding train rides) I’ve been interested in this, but never found a really good hands-on introduction.

Now there is one (:
