Well, it has been years (apparently no less than four!). Since my last post a lot has changed for me in particular, and, in tech at large.
So why hasn’t Alex been blogging one might not ask, and be forgiven. Well, let me explain and rant a little bit:
- First, I have no more connection to the Delphi community for a number of reasons, most prominent being that I do not have a license and I am not willing to purchase one just to have some fun. All my open-source projects are .NET these days (incidentally, check out my GitHub) since Microsoft “graciously” offers a community edition of Visual Studio.
Given that I have no idea what is going on in the world of Delphi, I have not progressed beyond my feelings of disappointment in the horrible quality of the compiler, mediocre support for cool new language features and etc.
- Given the previous long rant, one can understand why I have stopped writing anything about Delphi.
- I moved on to .NET.
- The advent of “stack overflow programming” paradigm (also know as “just google it“) ate most of the topics I could talk about.
- And finally, I got older and I started caring more about project architecture rather than small implementation details.
So here I am, and ready to start anew. I am not yet sure what is my next post going to be about, but I hope to have something interesting to write about, things that people might be interested in.
P.S. Some older posts might resurface in the next days due to me fixing and updating up my WordPress installation.
