One of the #EKON20 running gags: Raize condition

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/11/11

When Ray Konopka enters the room you have a Raize condition.

Via the EKON20 sessions, it made its way into the workshop If you thought you could do multi-threading, then play “The Deadlock Empire” games – Entwickler Konferenz

Early bird ends October 4th: get an Android tablet for free and save EUR 100!

EKON17 (from November 4-6 in Cologne, Germany) will be a fun event this year: lots of nice sessions and workshops, a lovely city (not just the Dom Cathedral), and a great group of speakers.

Since there are so many speakers that are able to speak English, it is interesting for non-German attendees as too, especially the post-conference workshop from Nick Hodges.

I’ll be speaking too (more on that below) and will be there all 3 days (plus the evening before and morning after to aid people with their Delphi related questions).

Among the speakers, these will do their sessions in English:

On Windows: Do not install the Android SDK ADT bundle in a path with spaces

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/08/28

Some 20 years after someone thought it was a nice idea to allow spaces in path names on Windows, it still is a bad idea to rely that just “works” for everything.

Today I tried to see if it still applied what I mentioned 2 years ago during the German BASTA! Fall conference in the Rheingoldhalle when talking about cross platform .NET development using MonoDroid/MonoTouch/Visual Studio:

Android SDK
http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html
– Windows:
- http://dl.google.com/android/installer_r13-windows.exe
- http://dl.google.com/android/android-sdk_r13-windows.zip
Do not install in a directory with spaces (not C:\Program Files, but C:\android-sdk)

And it does still apply: though not mentioned in the Android SDK/ADT documentation, most of the batch files in the Android SDK ADT bundle are not compatible being stored in a path that has spaces.

Unquoted referrals to paths like this are used in most SDK batch files:

cd /d %~dp0

The only way to run these batch files is with the current directory being the directory of the batch file itself, or referring to them in their fully quoted form.

Another correct way would be to use short names, but that’s only done in find_java.bat:

%~dps0

Summary of the batch files and how they are affected:

(Side note: most incompatible batch files correctly do `for %%i in (“%cd%”) do set prog_dir=%%~fsi`)

So: make sure “…”  is a path not containing spaces.
