Random Thoughts on the Passing Scene #154

Nick Hodges – Delphi Prism is on Channel 9.  David I give a quick rundown on Delphi Prism working in Visual Studio 2010.  Joe Meyer alerted me to a German guy who has done a bunch of Delphi tutorials (in German…).  Looks pretty good.  (And while you are over on YouTube, be sure not to miss ...

Fun With Testing DateUtils.pas #8

Nick Hodges – Okay, first up:  I’ve put the tests and updates for DateUtils.pas on CodeCentral.  So far, I’ve been writing tests in a pretty organized way.  But I write each individual test, one at a time.  I often end up writing a lot of “piece-meal” tests by hand.  I end up with a lot ...

Fun With Testing DateUtils.pas #7

Nick Hodges – Okay, so after that last post, and after all the fixes that I did, things have settled down a little bit.  I thought I’d take advantage of this interlude to tell you some interesting things about TDateTime in Delphi, because along the way here, I have discovered a thing or two along that way that ...

Fun With Testing DateUtils.pas #6

Nick Hodges – Okay, so when we last left off, IncMillisecond was still failing in certain circumstances.  Let’s take a look at that.  Note, too, that I have this crazy notion that if you have a function called IncMillisecond, then it should be able to, you know, increment a millisecond. Here is the ...

Fun With Testing DateUtils.pas #5

Nick Hodges – Okay, so when I left you hanging in the last post, I promised I’d explain what was up with IncMillisecond.  But before I do that, I have to explain a bunch of stuff about TDateTime. And as it turns out, we’ll have to take a detour, and we won’t exactly get to IncMillisecond this time ...

Fun With Testing DateUtils.pas #4

Nick Hodges – First, an admin note:  I’ve adjusted the color of strings in my code.   I was optimizing the colors for reading on my blog proper as opposed to the main site (hadn’t even thought of it, actually, sorry.), and someone pointed out that the colors weren’t working on the main site at ...

Random Thoughts on the Passing Scene #153

Nick Hodges – Andreano has a new blog, or at least it is new to me – just found it today.  He has two items there that caught my eye: His RADTweet project – a Delphi-based Twitter client – is online.  He has wisely put it on SourceForge for easy access, downloading, and updating.  A project that ...

Fun With Testing DateUtils.pas #3

Nick Hodges – Okay, things have settled down again, and it is time to get back to my adventure in TDateTime and DateUtils.pas. When we last left off, I had started at the top of DateUtils, and just started working my way down.  I had written some tests for DateOf and TimeOf, and tried to write tests that ...

Random Thoughts on the Passing Scene #152

Nick Hodges – As you may know, we are moving to a new office very nearby where we are now.  We got to visit the new digs today.  Friday is moving day, and we’ll be in the new place for a great new start on Monday morning.  I’m excited – I think that the move will be a great fresh start for us in a ...

Random Thoughts on the Passing Scene #151

Nick Hodges – I’m a big Joel Spolsky fan, but I wasn’t too impressed when I read that he went out of his way to steal Pascal’s with statement and add it to VBA for Excel, well….. Cary Jensen is doing a series of Webinars on Migrating to Unicode.  It’s not as hard as you think.  He’ll be showing you ...

Fun With Testing DateUtils.pas #2

Nick Hodges – First of all, thanks for the help improving the CreateRandomDate function.  I confess that I didn’t spend enough time thinking on it, and I’ll also confess that you guys are way smarter than I am.  ;-)  I’ll post the “updated” version for your perusal in a separate post.  In ...

I share these duties with the excellent and capable Mike Devery.  I mainly manage the guys that work on the ...

Fun Phone Calls with Delphi Prism

Nick Hodges – I was talking with a customer yesterday.  It was a pretty typical conversation – they have a big investment in Delphi, with hundreds of thousands of lines of code.  They had built a major application for a major business using DataSnap and dbGo (formerly ADOExpress).  They had started to build ...
