Microsoft C#

C# was set to be and developed originally as a simple, modern, general purpose, object oriented programming language and very similar to Java. As such developers generally find this language to be easy to use if they know and understand the synthetics of the other. C# itself is a commercial product and part of the .net framework owned by the big giant Microsoft…….
For C# the best environment that programmers have found the programming language runs on is visual studio – for the language the runtime and compliers are free to use. Some of the systems will use Windows or Windows COM/dll libraries and tools.

Programming in Companies

With more than a hundred programming languages available to use in companies, business have a hard time setting standards and putting in recommendations for programmers to follow the companies preferred programming recommendations. Even if for example Java C# etc are the recommended primarily there could be other hundreds of languages which could do the same job just as effectively. One of the down sides of having multiple languages is keeping upto date with new updates and versions required for the code! In terms of resource if you have someone writing and programming in java – if that person leaves then do you have someone else with efficient java skills to be able make amendments, understand what’s previously been written and continue to be able to use the system.

Adobe Flex

Further to yesterdays post on flex, Adobe flex is a programming language that I’m not particularly familar with. Having been out of the programming environment my knowledge on this particular programming language is limited. However I do know it is one of the preferred languages of many companies alongside java and C++ etc. the Adobe flex language is similar to C# and being quite a modern language it has the benefits of simplicity compared to other more complex programming languages making this one quite easy to use. The other benefit is that the compilers and runtimes are free for users and integrated development environments such as Eclipse also have Flex support.

Flex Webside Applications

Webside applications uses various technologies with Flex being one of the most appropriate. Being quite a modern newish language this replaces the older school languages which are quite complex and difficult to use such as java applet technology and Microsoft silverlight. Flash is another programming language like java applets is designed to run inside a browser. The advantage again is that the runtime for this is free and can be freely available for most browsers on almost any platform! It’s one of the worlds most widely deployed browser plugins and companies, industries and sites across the world use the programming language examples being youtube and BBC.

Java – A little info

Java is one of the most common programming languages available today. It was originally developed by someone called James Gosling from the company Sun Microsystems and released to the public in 1995. It was originally a core component of the of the companies own java platform. The syntax is from C and C++ but the underlying object model is much simpler. The advantage of java is that the code can be run on any java virtual machine known as JVM regardless of the PC’s architecture. The size of programmers using this particular programming language is enormous – the platform has over 6.5 million software developers who use the code for there own programming systems

Easter Egg in code

When you read code from open source projects you often find easter eggs. WordPress is very famous for that and I have personaly found many during my exploration of the source code. It is always refreshing and funny when you are stuck on something to find a little joke.

I like easter eggs but I have never done any myself. Maybe if I was doing more open source projects I would but for now I do not. The funniest I always remenber is from the Thematic framework and the function get_cats_meow. Hilarious isn’t it?

I’ll see what else I can digg out later. Read more »

Buy books

While I do think the best way to learn is on the web at the moment, I do think it is important to diversify and get different sources for the same subject. Book are a great way to learn stuff. They are usually written in a better way than most blogs and carry accurate imformation.

Plus it takes you out of your screen a bit which is always good. Borden your horizons why different readings and learn from different sources so you can get better.

I’ll try to give some good book to read about code later on.

Coldfusion

Coldfusion is lame. There, I’ve said it and I am not taking it back. I don’t like coldfusion. It is an inefficient language that is not good for anything.

I had to update an old app coded in coldfusion today and spent the worst hours of my life trying to figure out what the hell the script was doing. Seriously if I don’t get, who could?

I am not saying I am the best coder on earth but I am pretty good at what I do and that, I don’t get. Even the help in coldfusion is rubbish. Stay away from it that’s my advice.

Languages are all from cousins

Believe it or not but all languages used nowadays for anything are all derived of the same way of thinking and coding. Fair enough you have languages faster than others, or object oriented as they say, but at the end of the day they all originate from the same source.

The day when we see a really new and revolutionary language is not for the next few years if you listen to me, and even it will probably be derived from something that existed before.

I am gonna try to do my own I think, I might be luckier than other people and do something really different…or not.

Code is poetry

That’s what you read at the bottom of WordPress.org. Code is poetry is something that’s so true I can’t stop thinking about it. When you write code there are tons of diferent way of doing it. But like write by hand, there are ways better than others.

The poetry comes when you realise there is a really good way to code something and that by doing it you learn more about code. So when you write an app or a website think about it. Don’t just through code like that on the page but try to do it in the best way possible.
