Hi Linux, again! (Ubuntu 18.04 on Dell XPS 9350)

Yet Another Programming Blog – Once every N years I give Linux a try. I’ve been a great supporter in the past and I always enjoyed tinkering with my OSes. I gradually lost the appetite due to jobs always requiring a windows PC, making the use of Linux a pain. For my previous attempt to use Linux, in the summer of 2017, I ...

On how I “started embracing” dynamic languages

Yet Another Programming Blog – I will start by saying that that I do not have anything new to add to the everlasting “dynamic vs static binding” debate: It’s been talked about to death at this point, and yeah, I am still well in the “strongly typed languages” camp and am not planning to leave anytime ...

Introducing (very late!) XtraLiteTemplates for .NET (4.5+ and Core 2.0+)

Yet Another Programming Blog – Well, to begin, this is not a new project – I have developed most of it during the end of 2015 with occasional fixes and new features along the way (recently added support for DLR and dynamic objects). But, in the great tradition of the “blogger” I feel obligated to share my baby ...

Rate limiting an Azure queue

Yet Another Programming Blog – In my previous post (“Singleton” Azure Functions) I offered a tip on how to set up an Azure function to serve as a system-wide “singleton”. One of the use cases I was looking for was to set up a service to act as a “broker between two Service Bus queues“. I will ...

“Singleton” Azure Functions

Yet Another Programming Blog – This is not the sort of “stuff” I would usually be writing about in the past. Lately, though, more and more work that I am involved with is somewhat related to Azure. More often than not, my daily tasks include bending Azure services to my needs rather than writing code (which is a ...

Bringing the blog back to life…

Yet Another Programming Blog – Well, it has been years (apparently no less than four!). Since my last post a lot has changed for me in particular, and, in tech at large. So why hasn’t Alex been blogging one might not ask, and be forgiven. Well, let me explain and rant a little bit: First, I have no more connection to the ...

Strings as “data buffers”

Yet Another Programming Blog – I bet most of the Delphi developers used or are still using strings to hold and operate on binary data. I’ve done it, and some of my older projects still contain such code. The basic idea is to use strings as byte buffers to hold and to use string routines to perform operations on those ...

Delphi anonymous methods are …

Yet Another Programming Blog – … too fat. Surely writing code like this gets frustrating very fast. I want my lambdas!! { Lovely, isn't it? } LGroupJoined := LOwners.Op.GroupJoin<TPet, TPerson, TOwnedPets>(LPets, function(Arg1: TPerson): TPerson begin Result := Arg1; end, function(Arg1: TPet): ...

Ping 2012!

Yet Another Programming Blog – Yes,  I am still here. 2011 was a very challenging year for me: in January 2011 I have been offered a very tempting position a company and I have accepted it. It’s a very small “services” company but with large expansions plans. The whole 2011 I was busy building a new system, ...

Variant Invoke and RTTI

Yet Another Programming Blog – I was “spring cleaning” my temporary project directory on my hard drive today and I found a half-finished implementation of a dynamic dispatch for objects based on new RTTI (Delphi 2010+). I spent some time and fixed the last issues I had and now I think it’s ready to be published. ...
