tiOPF discussion thread

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/11/29

Sometimes the title of a G+ entry looks not so interesting, but then you read the comments. In this cast it’s about the mediator pattern support in the tiOPF object persistence framework, how it works very well from Free Pascal and both classic and  modern Delphi compilers and why developers dislike ARC. It’s cool as it allows you to decouple UI from business logic and separate out business logic from your application into a back-end.

Some links to Delphi Unit Testing history

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/01/29

Unit testing has been here for a long time, and so has Unit Testing in Delphi. Below a summary of historic links together with some notes on how the state of affairs changed over the years.

Charlie Calvert

I’ll start with one of the first large Delphi Unit Testing articles was a paper by Charlie Calvert summarizing the state of the art on Delphi Unit Testing in 2004. It is present in the wayback machine as DUnit Talk and on his elvenware.com site.

Note that the elvenwere.com site is sometimes slow or hard to reach. Since his evangelist days at Borland/CodeGear, Charlie has moved through a few evangelist jobs at Falafel and Microsoft and finally went back to his old profession: being a great teacher – this time at Bellevue Collegeoften using script based languages and cloud computing, with less focus on his web-presence.

Many of his IT books (during his writing period, he wrote both as Charles Calvert and Charlie Calvert) are still relevant though.

RosettaCode: cool way to improve your coding skills

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/01/22

Wow: I feel like having lived under a stone for 8 years, as RosettaCode has been alive since it was founded in 2007 by Mike Mol.

The idea is that you solve a task and learn from that, or learn by seeing how others have solved tasks or draft tasks.

So in a sense it is similar to the Rosetta stone: it has different languages phrasing the same tasks.

There are already a whole bunch of languages on RosettaCode (of which a few are in the categories below), and you can even suggest or add your own languages.

When you want to solve tasks, be sure to look at the list unimplemented tasks by language that leads to automatic reports by language (for instance two of the languages I use most often: C# and Delphi).

I’m sure there are lots of programming chrestomathy sites, even beyond the ones, and it feels very similar to programming kata sites.
