More on new .NET path handling – Jeremy Kuhne’s Blog

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/08/07

When it was at the age natural people are allowed to drive in the USA, the .NET framework behaved far less brain dead handling various (especially long or strange) paths: [WayBackMore on new .NET path handling – Jeremy Kuhne’s Blog.

Path handling has frustrated me in many development environments, so I wonder if ones that are beyond the (USA) legal age of drinking follow.

Design Patterns & Refactoring

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/07/16

Design Patterns and Refactoring articles and guides. Design Patterns video tutorials for newbies. Simple descriptions and full source code examples in Java, C++, C#, PHP and Delphi.

Source: [WayBackDesign Patterns & Refactoring.

And indeed a lot of examples in Delphi too; few sites have that: Delphi

paulcbetts/refit: The automatic type-safe REST library for Xamarin and .NET

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/04/03

This is so cool: [WayBack] paulcbetts/refit: The automatic type-safe REST library for Xamarin and .NET. It’s  inspired by Square’s [WayBack] Retrofit library which does the same for Java.

They basically allow you to use attributes on interfaces to define a type-safe wrapper around any REST interface, then instantiate a connection to it for making calls.

No more manual HttpClient fiddling!

Since it requires only .NET 1.4, you can basically run it on any platform as it’s supported covered by the implementations .NET Core, Mono and the full .NET Framework.

Quite a lot of projects already use it; I got there via the first link:

Let’s stop copying C / fuzzy notepad

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/12/07

Ah, C. The best lingua franca we have… because we have no other lingua francas. Linguae franca. Surgeons general? C is fairly old — 44 years, now! — and comes from a time when there were possibly more architectures than programming languages. It works well for what it is, and what it is is a relatively simple layer of indirection atop assembly. Alas, the popularity of C has led to a number of programming languages’ taking significant cues from its design, and parts of its design are… slightly questionable. I’ve gone through some common features that probably should’ve stayed in C and my justification for saying so. The features are listed in rough order from (I hope) least to most controversial. The idea is that C fans will give up when I call it “weakly typed” and not even get to the part where I rag on braces. Wait, crap, I gave it away.

[WayBack] The Netherlands saw a big I.T. project meant to deliver a new citizen registry system fail. So they did one thing right. All the source code is now on github… – Jan Wildeboer – Google+

It includes both documentation and source code.

A bit of browsing reveals at least some of the technologies used:

Most of the SQL code seems to be generated.

There are truckloads of .XML configuration files, typical for a Java environment. Some configuration is in .properties files.
