You know this weekend I took my time to explore a few things in Windows 10 and Visual Studio 2015. For starters, every time I installed Windows, being a Windows Pro version owner I never bothered checking the features it offered, such as BitLocker. Hyper-V So, the thing about Hyper-V is that it’s something really,… Continue reading Toying with VS Emulator, Hyper-V + Linux, Apache Cordova, and Windows 10 Virtual Desktops
So basically I’m at my wits end. I haven’t had the time to finish my application. There are two things that have demotivated me greatly. First, the overhead of QML is too much to the point that I might have to drop it. This means I’ll have to come up with a way to build… Continue reading What’s next in programming?
I’m “abandoning ship” and hopping on Xamarin/Microsoft bandwagon on creating mobile apps with C#. It pains me to say that getting things to work requires a lot of effort with QML. I feel like there’s so many, many things it can do yet it tries to be so many things. At the end of the… Continue reading Goodbye, QML
I’ve been watching Microsoft’s Build event, been doing so since last year and this year has been pretty darn exciting. I’ve yet to dabble into C# mostly due to most of my energy going to C++, it’s apparent that I want to work with C#, after working with Qt I feel like the reach for… Continue reading Updates, updates everywhere!
I feel awful, yet happy, yet tired. A bit of an annoyance is when you spend hours doing something, then a week or two later you see a new library that does that and simplifies the code greatly; allowing maintenance and readability at the same time. So, take it as you may but if you… Continue reading Reducing complexity
I’ve been working with HTML in low-level languages like C/C++ and I must say that it’s been a rather frustrating experience. One would think that the task I’m doing should have been done ages ago, since the conception of the project. Alas, that’s not quite right. What you fail to realize is that you should… Continue reading The inadequacy of HTML, delving into C, and pondering remote jobs
I didn’t spend too much time on this issue, but as someone who knows the basics to intermediate in SQL it still caught me off-guard on how easy it is to have insanely slow query performances. Take an innocent query like this. Once would think it has some sort of meta information stored already, but… Continue reading SQLite and the importance of indexes
The aftermath… of all my chasing is that I got nothing. You heard me right. I spent days figuring out what was wrong just to receive one hell of a slap to the face that the OS doesn’t necessarily claim the memory back. But, I also noticed that memory started to be freed after changing… Continue reading Aftermath of memory management / designing for mobile / the need of something better
I guess I should start by saying that I’m using PyQt4 mostly because… well, I don’t have an excuse, just pure laziness when I started writing the code. This is mostly an exercise where I toy with Python and Qt in general; I find it “relaxing” to work on other stuff than eating C++ every… Continue reading Fun with Python3 and PyQT
You know when you are chasing bugs it can take a lot of time and energy. While I’m still fatigued I ran into a small design problem, a decision I wrote without really thinking how QNetworkReply would react thus I ran into a lot of crashes. See, crashes you at least have info to work… Continue reading Chasing the butterflies in GDB
