Toying with VS Emulator, Hyper-V + Linux, Apache Cordova, and Windows 10 Virtual Desktops

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

Goodbye, QML

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

Reducing complexity

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

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

Aftermath of memory management / designing for mobile / the need of something better

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

Fun with Python3 and PyQT

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
