What are estimations in agile software development and what are they not? This is nothing new, but something that appears to not be clear to some people; sometimes not even people who (claim to) practice/support agile development.
I've been experimenting a little with Kotlin over the last few days. Using JavaFX with Kotlin was one of the main topics. This article covers what I've learned.
Why is it necessary to have your GUI running in a separate thread? This question came to me years ago, when I needed to understand how to use delegators in C#. Why not simply do everything in the same thread? In this post I'll cover some thoughts about usability aspects of GUI threading. There is also a part about Matlab, because that is what triggered me to write this article in the first place.
After an unsuccessfull weekend of trying to get Haskell using an HTTP package, I decided to finally give Frege a try. And while being at it, why not try FregeFX as well. Another weekend of moments of confusion, frustration and euphoria got me to the initial setup of creating projects with FregeFX in IntelliJ. I put this setup in a template for whomever might need it. Here's the link to the template: FregeFX IntelliJ project template. The following article describes my odyssey into the world of Frege(FX) ...
It's been a while since I changed to Grav on my website, as well as my home server. Now I have finally succeeded in getting the Kanban board back up and running again on the new home server site.
Finally a little time and quite a few things got finished. There are new releases for EnOceanConnector and HomeCtrl.
Just finished switching from my vServer back to webhosting. I simply had no time for the vServer. Now I only need to wait for the update of the DNS routes and on Tuesday I'm going to shut down the vServer for good. Yay, more speed :).
The next semester at the Volkshochschule (VHS) Erlangen is starting. I'm there again as well with an introduction seminar for Linux and a JavaFX software project seminar.
So, the other day I decided to slowly get some focus on a mobile client for my home automation. Not that there is much to do, because it's all automated, but I could at least show some data. Normally I like web interfaces as a GUI for the simple fact, that it can be used on every device that has a browser. This time I decided to try an Android app and to make it a little more fun and challenging, make an app with JavaFX for Desktop and Android. Here I'll ignore IOS devices completely, for the single reason that I prefer to work with Linux and Android systems.
