And so I face the final curtain

Wed, 31 Jul 2013 00:38:28 +00002013-07-31T00:38:28Z

After about seven years including 1,820 blog posts, 350 newsletters and hundreds of articles I've decided for various reasons to bow out from writing About C,C++, C# (and unofficially Google Go). It has been fun, educational, satisfying and I'm sure someone will continue after me.

Tox - Cross Platform Secure IM / VOIP

Tue, 30 Jul 2013 05:53:31 +00002013-07-30T05:53:31Z

Written in C, Tox aims to give you a bit of privacy (at least until the NSA can decrypt all the stored data!). It's been created to be easy to use and let you connect without anyone else listening in.

Mon, 29 Jul 2013 14:41:43 +00002013-07-29T14:41:43Z

Xwt is sort of like WxWidgets etc where this one open source library lets you write GUI code for different environments. In this case it's a C# library for WPF or GTK (using GTK#) on Windows, Cocoa engine on Mac (using MonoMac) and GTK on Linux.

Finding Work Face to Face

Sun, 28 Jul 2013 17:17:46 +00002013-07-28T17:17:46Z

One thing that the internet is not quite so good at is helping you introduce yourself to customers face to face. Last Wednesday evening I went to a Silicon Roundabout Meetup at Google Campus in Bonhill Street in Islington, London. There were over 200 people there.

Xamarin Update to Mono 3.0

Fri, 26 Jul 2013 17:12:26 +00002013-07-26T17:12:26Z

Xamarin, the C# development system for iOS and Android that I enthuse about has just done a major upgrade. Being easily seduced by leading edge (aka bleeding edge) technology I went for the upgrade and it failed. It wiped out the Xamarin Bonjour service files and didn't replace them, so the install had to be rolled back.

Best Method of Pricing Contract Work?

Wed, 24 Jul 2013 18:00:24 +00002013-07-24T18:00:24Z

Yes this is programming related. I've been asked to price up creating an iPhone App (in C# using Xamarin) that is a hand held version of a website used for processing a lot of retail data and returning answers to complex queries. There are multiple APIs involved and my son-in-law wrote the original website so at least I have technical help there when (not if!) I need it.

Latest C Tutorial Published

Mon, 22 Jul 2013 09:10:36 +00002013-07-22T09:10:36Z

As promised this latest C tutorial is about low level operations, bit manipulation and even very light weight encryption using the ^ (XOR) operator.

There's still a few more tutorials to go to cover the rest of Ansi C but I'll soon start looking at C99 using GCC shortly.

Here's a Surprise- C99 in VS 2013

Sat, 20 Jul 2013 14:18:42 +00002013-07-20T14:18:42Z

Yes C99 will be supported in Visual C++/Studio 2013. Presumably they're bringing out a new version of their flagship software tool so soon because they've found a designer who doesn't ...

The Joys of Programming

Fri, 19 Jul 2013 17:16:29 +00002013-07-19T17:16:29Z

For most of this month I've been working on a commission to convert a Windows Phone App to iOS using Xamarin Studio. The last three days have seen me immersed in the field of TCP/IP trying to have my iOS Client talk to a server running on my PC. I was given the spec for the server, packet types etc and half this week was spent fruitlessly talking to the server and getting zero bytes back.

Rampant Pixels Foundation Library

Thu, 18 Jul 2013 17:52:32 +00002013-07-18T17:52:32Z

This caught my eye because of course I write games code in C and the worst aspect of that is reinventing the wheel. The Foundation library offers a lot of ...
