  • 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...

  • 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"...

  • cheetah templates on Google App Engine

    I've run across a few blog entries that indicate other people have managed to get this working, but I don't see any hints around (or even about) this particular problem. Maybe it's something that is just really well known for Genshi and Mako, and I just didn't make the connection. Anyway...

  • 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...

  • Real World Dojo part Three: AJAX

    When we finished up last time, we had an AJAX-ified form that uploads an image file . The problem now is that the "metadata" (the name and URL) are being completely ignored. It's ugly, but try adding them as GET variables to the upload path: It seems like I should just be able to update...

  • Real World Dojo part Two: File Upload

    In my last post, I wrote about my research into doing client-side validation with Dojo (disclaimer, in case you haven't seen this a billion times before: this can never be trusted server-side...this is only a convenience for the client, not a security thing). There's a long story in that post...
