Over the years, a few people have come across and used a bit of code I wrote for Imagine.
One of the first games I ever wrote, circa 1982, was a version of Pong for the TRS-80. Yes, pong - with the two paddles and bouncing ball. Now there's a NetBeans plugin!I had a pong game when I was in about 3rd grade. It plugged into the black and white TV in the kitchen, had two paddles and one switch for ball speed.
I'm going to JavaOne next week - doing a talk I'd love you to come to as part of Java University at 6PM this coming Monday (I mistakenly originally posted Sunday) night.
Ohloh is a neat service. It does some basic statistical analysis of open source projects, and tries to come up with useful information. But it sure comes up with some wacky statistics.Take, for example, the Wizard project. Now, this is something that I initially whipped up in two afternoons in September '05.
I've spent the last few months collaborating with the Java Card team to create Java Card plugins for NetBeans.
A couple of years ago, at OOPSLA '06, I think, I had a lot of fun hanging out with Jarda Tulach and Rich Unger and writing a generic library for enqueueing a batch of jobs that run against an object on a background thread.
The fun part was really getting to dig into the
A few of months ago I blogged about a simple but powerful pattern for working with Objects not key/value pairs - use dynamic proxies to generate an implementation of an interface, which delegates to the backing storage transparently. It's ready to become a small open source project.
Every now and then I get tempted to do this:|
I've seen so much code that was made less readable and more complicated
