After thouroughly reading this article about How To Keep Hostile Jerks From Taking Over Your Online Community from the other day and having some time to really think about it, I’m beginning to rethink a few things.  First of all I want CodeGear’s online community presence to be as comfortable and inviting both for our loyal [...]

Who is not connected these days?

This probably seems like a stupid question to ask.  It’s like a teacher asking all those not present to please raise their hands.  Aside from that mythical programmer living in a cardboard hut in East Botswana (appologies to anyone who actually live there…) with some strange bastardised bicycle generator device powering their all night binge programming session, I’d say that [...]

Parallel or Serial…

Steve Trefethen has been posting some great information about our use of the Subversion source code control system and Cruisecontrol.NET.  One thing that I’ve noticed is that over the years version control systems are becoming more and more sophisticated and have finally begun to realized that version control is not just about files.  It is [...]
