Yup, Still Learning a New Programming Language Every Year

I gave an update on this lifetime activity of mine in 2006, 2007, 2011, and 2013, and here we go for 2023.

Containers and DLL Hell

Back in the 1990s, shared libraries were all the rage.

Useful C# Snippets

Some useful snippets collected during my work with C#, UWP, and .

iPhone Apps without Objective-C

Yes, it’s possible. Even if Objective-C is one of my preferred programming languages, in any case I think it’s worth mentioning that, 2 years after the official iPhone SDK has been announced, the iPhone development landscape has really grown up, and many, many different options are available today.

Preferred Programming Languages

There are basically 5 languages that I really like. For several reasons.

This Year's Programming Languages

Trying to keep my promise of learning a new programming language every year, I have identified a couple of candidates for 2007:

Some .NET Code

I just updated the Projects subsection of this site with some .

Quick Comparison of C# and Ruby

I have been working as a software developer since 1996, and as such I’ve used a variety of different languages, both compiled and interpreted.

The Exception to the Rule

The rainy, later snowy, Swiss weather of this weekend has made me just stay at home, and take the chance to try out a few things: that’s how I made my first steps in Ruby and WebObjects.
