LLVM is available for Visual Studio? http://llvm.org/docs/GettingStartedVS.html

Hey, look what I found!

I found this site by accident, sporting the stylish Visual C++ 6 logo: http://www.bogotobogo.com/cplusplus/cpptut.php

It is pretty funny to read the tutorial on multithreading, given how new it was back then to a lot of developers and today, it’s becoming the new norm: http://www.bogotobogo.com/cplusplus/multithreaded.php

A while ago I blogged about WebGL.

There are some really cool implementations of this technology at chromeexperiments.com, with a really cool demo of a water simulation and a cute video game.

Thanks to altdevblogaday.com for blogging about this!

3D Printer! What?!

This is really something! I did not think that this was even possible.

A really good presentation is given by… a kid… about why he loves his 3D printer: http://store.makerbot.com/thing-o-matic-kit-mk7.html

Some of the really cools things that are made with 3D printers can be viewed at: http://www.thingiverse.com/

Xcode 4

Xcode 4
Xcode 4 has a lot of cool new features.

One of my favorites is it’s ability to tell you when you introduced a bug in your code; the feature is similar to a spell check found in a word processor.

Usually, these cool tools are only available for Objective-C, but because of LLVM, this feature works on C++ as well.

And on the topic of C++, Xcode 4 will support C++0X… Holy cow!

Adobe Scripting Additions

I’ve been getting warning messages in my Console log stating the “Adobe Unit Types.osax” has deprecated functions.

Then, when I starting scripting Xcode with AppleScript, I’ve been getting a bunch of errors about the above listed library.

Well, Adobe had something to say about that: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/516/cpsid_51615.html

Apple announces iCloud

Apple announced the iCloud service and for someone like me, this is a great service.

For a while, I have been battling with the problem of having access to common data on multiple computers, whether that be documents, calendaring information, or other documents from multiple computers.

Having access to that data without having to rely on a USB key is a cool thing.

I like their pricing model too: FREE.

What I don’t like is the potential there may be to change that model from FREE to FEE like Apple has done before in the past with the .Mac service, now known as MobileMe.

Now, seeing this service being hosted from Apple, it makes me think about certain things:

  • Can I host something similar to this using my public web servers?
  • Can my dedicated FreeBSD servers offer me something similar using OpenSSL and Samba?
  • Can I actually make something as easy to use as what Apple has?
  • Is there someone out there that already has something similar?

This is an ongoing problem for me so it will be interesting to see Apple’s implementation in action.

I may or may not use it. If I do, I will have a contingency plan in effect since I’m not 100% sure that this service will be FREE forever.

I don’t get enough sleep, thanks to git

I don’t know why I do such things. I didn’t go to bed till midnight cause I was checking out git 😉

I installed git on my Mac, which was rather easy using the installer, and started to play with it.

I’m actually curious to see how this will work for me, compared to Perforce that is.

So far, it feels like any other command line version control system I have used in the past.

The real test will be how this versioning system compares to what I’m using now in a couple of months.

I hope the game is as good as the trailer… and if it is, I’m looking forward to it:
