Indices and Ranges for working with arrays (and lists etc?) in C# 8 look pretty neat! #dotnet #programming



 
Another interesting article on replacing modern IEEE floating point with newer approaches that get rid of some of the nasty artifacts we constantly deal with while simultaneously reducing memory/storage requirements #programming #hpc

Brad Koehn ☑️ reshared this.

It is interesting that he is still touting as a positive benefit what I have seen other people pointing out as a distinct failing, the merging of +/-0 and +/- infinity.



 
Programming langues I've developed in the last 7 days: C#, Java, FORTRAN, C, Forth, Kotlin, Ruby, Objective-C. All but Forth for actual projects. #polyglot #programming
#polyglot #programming programming

That's an incredible achievement. It's more than one different language each day! 😉 😆

Yeah it comes from needing a combo for some projects. Like the Java, FORTRAN, and C were two parts of code bases for the same project. The Kotlin and Ruby were from polishing up the Diaspora API Client I wrote (Kotlin) waiting for the hopfully imminent release of 0.8.0.0 (Ruby) but had to fumble around in there to see where and why something changed so I could update my client.

I've got a long list over lifetime, but in last week or so at work? Go, VB.Net, DOS Batch, Bash, T-SQL, and Java - and the barest touch of Kotlin.



 
In an exchange with a friend about my FORTRAN post a joke was made about exploring Forth for the Fourth. Actually that sounds like a neat little #programming experiment so here we are...lol... https://repl.it/languages/Forth
#programming programming



 
Never thought I'd need to see how @clion_ide from @jetbrains handles FORTRAN but here we go... #programming

One day, Jetbrains will replace systemd then Linux 😁



 

Roundabouts can't handle a lot of traffic.

Roundabouts take a huge amount of public space and give it to cars. They increase driving speeds in cities. Roundabout exits are practically guillotines for pedestrians and cyclists.

Self driving cars are a myth.



 
Mostly positive 1st impressions of #AvaloniaUI for #dotnet #linux development, with some paths forward #programming https://www.nequalsonelifestyle.com/2019/05/13/avalonia-first-impressions/



 
I'm coming out of development/software engineering hibernation :) #programming https://www.nequalsonelifestyle.com/2019/05/02/dev-ramp-up/

Dove into some #diaspora code for the first time in forever to help someone figure out how to do something. I do enjoy that code base immensely even if I haven't worked in it for many months #programming #ruby

I have big hopes about the coming hackathon in Berlin. I really wish your API PR will be merged then, or at least have significant progress done



 
On Linux Journal's 25th Anniversary they interviewed Linus again. #programming #linux https://www.linuxjournal.com/content/25-years-later-interview-linus-torvalds

by te guy who later started redhat

@Andrej Yeah pretty neat!



 
Darn, still no UI for Linux on the roadmap (although many good things). I want to try Avalonia but it'd be great if Linux wasn't a 3rd class #dotnet citizen. #programming https://visualstudiomagazine.com/articles/2019/04/04/net-core-3.aspx

Yep, C# is such a nice language

@Christoph S I know :(. Before I found Kotlin it was why I was heavily ramping up my .NET on Linux work. Everytime I hear a podcast on Avalonia and stuff I want to try it again. Also one project I want to do needs to be tying into some native libraries and the bridge for that through the CLR is far more reasonable than the options available through the JVM.

Before I started studying at university I was doing a professional training as software developer at a company and despite some legacy stuff we used C# for the newer porjects. I really loved the language. Then when I started studying at university it was like going back a couple of years, cause I had to learn Java and always wanted to do things like I did in C#, e.g. a foreach loop over a String. Of course in Java you need to use the damn CharArray stuff....AutoProperties in C# for getter/setter were also very nice!
Well, but in the meantime with Java 8 there have been a lot of great advances.



 
Supply chain management and detailed tracking seemed to me to be one of the best uses of blockchains. Apparently Bellucci is using it so you can track and confirm where the olive oil in the jar you produced came from. As an olive oil lover who is leery of adulterated olive oil (which is a lot of them) and a software developer I found that to be pretty neat! #food #programming #blockchain https://www.bbc.com/news/business-47553054

This is really really neat! As coded this produces 114 years of music driven by the pi sequence. It sounds pretty neat too #math #science #programming https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/vbwn7d/musician-creates-a-million-hour-song-based-on-the-number-pi
#math #science #programming software

It does sound pretty neat!



 
I'm having a bit of "writers block" on developing recently. Trying to ruminate on it to get past it. #programming #opensource #fediverse

@Hank G have you ever touched the Social Home project by @Jason Robinson 🐍🍻?

It's Python, not PHP and to my knowledge the project's team doesn't mind integrating different Fediverse protocols too

@senya I've chatted with him about it but haven't played with it yet.

@Hank G maybe there you'll find your happiness :)
