So as I am boxing things up, preparing for the upcoming move, I stumble upon a lot of old documents, photos and knick knacks I accumulated over the years.
Once upon a time, you’ll remember, I was heading a team that was intent on writing a book about Mono. Addison Wesley had signed us up for a book called Linux Application Development with Mono and I was under contract for a five book series focused mostly on Mono. Though the project looked fun at the time, the team was loosing interest and our editor at AW got laid off, we never heard back from Addison Wesley and didn’t push it.
It’s apparently a favorite on this web site so an overhaul and rewrite was due. I am not sure I am done with it yet but it went through a pretty thorough refresh: Mac OS X tool recommendation Call it the must-have, best-of, top 10 or whatever, it’s a list of the key applications I… Read more »
I find it interesting that the most common search that take people to my site is some variation on Tomboy+Mac. The second most common search group has to do with Open Source Session Initiation Protocol phones (SIP) but more on that later. I wonder what it is in Tomboy that Mac OS X users crave… Read more »
gregdeck of Fedora fame officially clears up why Redhat suddenly greenlighted Mono’s inclusion in their community distro. I talked about it in January. P.S. I wonder if ClassPath is on that list.
AIGLX, wow, what a shiny waste of time. When will you guys realize that what’s missing in Linux is not cool visual effects but solid applications and hardware support. That’s where you should shine. Who cares if I can play a video on the edge of a cube when there is no decent Video Player… Read more »
Wanted to make a quick note before I forget but I noticed recently that more and more developer tools (Java mostly but even Perl/PHP/Python/Ruby for example with Komodo) are made available for Mac OS X: IntelliJ Eclipse (of course) Sun Java Studio Creator (for JSF – Java ASP.NET-like technology) YourKit Java Profiler And on the… Read more »
I ‘rediscovered’ it recently as I was showing it to people around the office. There is simply no way around it, if you ever do edit HTML/CSS/JS, it is the single most useful extension available for Firefox. The screenshot here does not do it justice (Display Element information, a.k.a. Ctrl+Shift+F) because that’s just one feature… Read more »
Well, it’s a week full of good news. I’d like to make official something I’ve been dying to tell you since we signed the contract this summer. Joe Hummel, Geoff Norton, Niel Bornstein, Brian J. Sletten and I are co-authoring a book about Linux Application Development with Mono with Addison Wesley as our publisher. Here… Read more »
How do you guys test your web applications (Functional testing & performance / scalability testing) ? I researched this subject briefly but came up short. JMeter looks a little light, HttpUnit seems pretty much abandonned. All in all, nothing seems to be equivalent in functionality to Segue or Mercury’s products. Am I wrong ? What… Read more »
