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.

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.

At #SXSW 2014 this week, Embarcadero Launches Appmethod, A New Multi-Device Development Platform For Native Apps (via: @TechCrunch)

The @appmethod secret.

The @appmethod secret.

Wow. Out of the blue, I just read Embarcadero Launches AppMethod, A New Multi-Device Development Platform For Native Apps | TechCrunch. And I’m impressed.

In short:

At SXSW 2014 (which is running now, its agenda has a schedule from March 7th till March 16th), Embarcadero announces appmethod, to be released in beta on March 18th, 2014 for building native cross platform applications. Many have found out you can apply for the beta at www.appmethod.com.

More and more people are bumping into the appmethod link, for instance on FaceBook, on Google Plus, at Delphi Bistro and #Appmethod starting with the @appmethod secret by Joy Ruff.

Below are a few my observations from following all of the above links. Read them, especially the TechCrunch. I expect interesting posts from others to follow really soon now (:.

I’m only a few hours ahead of you readers, but I’m having a positive vibe just for these reasons: Read the rest of this entry »

Link clearance: history of Pascal / Object Pascal / Delphi Language / FreePacal / …

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/02/25

This post lists a lot of links related to the history of Pascal / Object Pascal / Delphi Language / FreePascal / etc.

No mentioning of Pascal should start without Niklaus Wirth. At the time of writing he is still alive, hopefully he still is a the time of publication.

Link clearance.
