  • Which Lisp?

    Intro Let's cut to the chase. This post is for people who, for whatever reason, have decided they want to learn lisp. Pretty much the first question that comes after that decision is "Which one?" Several people have tried to answer that question over the years. The answers seem to all boil...

  • Why FOSS is Better

    You really don't want to read the train of thought that led up to this post. Even if I really remembered it clearly. Let's just something that it's been bubbling around in the back of my head for the past few weeks, and leave it at that. The main advantage of OSS has always been clear and...

  • Simple NoSQL (resolved...I think)

    For all you avid readers who have been waiting with bated breath (I'm sure there are at least 2 of you on the planet): I found a resolution to my recent post about NoSQL options under Common Lisp . The project I was looking for seems to be Rucksack . I completely dismissed it at first, because the...

  • Simple NoSQL

    I'm nibbling around the edges of kicking off a new project. Still doing the research and due diligence parts, but it's starting to solidify enough that I'm more or less down to picking out specific tools to at least start actually planning (how much planning winds up happening up front depends...

  • C++ Virtual Inheritance

    I don't know what the odds are that anyone actually having this problem will run across this on google. But maybe someone will read it and remember before-hand. I have an inheritance hierarchy something like Interface -> ABC -> C -> D. Each constructor explicitly calls its parent class'...

  • Developer Reliability Metrics

    Why Reliability Metrics? There's a new law being considered in the EU that would require software companies to pay for damages caused by bugs . A comment about halfway down the page recommends requiring specific certifications for coders working on specific kinds of projects. Just like engineers...

  • Broken has_key on GAE, using Cheetah Templates

    The GAE developers have done something that seems incredibly stupid to me, but it probably won't seem to matter that much to anyone who hasn't been using Python for a while. They've defined a has_key() method on their ORM's Model class. What it really does is check to see if the Model...

  • Pyjamas on Google App Engine

    Pyjamas is one of the most interesting frameworks I've run across in a long time. You write a desktop-style app (it looks a lot like something you'd do if you were lame enough to actually write WPF code instead of using the GUI to build XAML) in python, and run it through a "compiler"...

  • Real World Dojo part 5: Custom Components

    Introduction It turns out that the file upload piece from last time (the User Feedback article) is going to be used over and over. And that I need to attach a drop-down to let the uploader specify what kind of license is associated with the file. In the dot net world, I'd be tempted to slap the code...

  • Real World Dojo part Four: User Feedback

    So now we have a simple form that uses AJAX to upload a file and submits some metadata for the server to associate with that file. It doesn't really give any useful feedback, though. No real end-user's going to read the console, I'm not actually doing anything with the file upload progress...
