String Format Diagnostic (v1.9.0.0)

I've been spending some time developing a Roslyn Code Diagnostic to analyse and validate formatting strings in both VB and C#.
Proud to say that succeeding in creating a proof of concept a few months back (link to blog post)
Over the intervening spare time I have been slowly improving it.

It's been somewhere between three or four or maybe even five weeks since the college semester began. Finding myself swamped already, I made time to start my blog entries. Ever since the semester I finished the first programming course, I have found myself lacking a trustworthy laptop I could use to program. I (naively) bought a Chrome OS...

A journey through Code Katas

Icon 2 Comments
In martial arts, a kata is a sequence of moves that is practised over and over. You can use it as a vehicle to hone your technique or develop strength, agility and stamina. You can use it as a warm up exercise or to cool down and stretch. You can use it to train slow, controlled movements or to generate ballistic energy. If you have more than one...

What is Fundamental?

Keen to write the next great game? A super application? You must first understand the fundamentals of your chosen language. These fundamentals are largely the same, regardless of the language.

Technology repeats itself

If you want to know what will be the next big thing in software development, a good bet is to look at our past. And not just immediate past, but achingly ancient times.

Consider the current trend in programming paradigms - the onset of functional programming. The highlight of Java 8 was the addition of functional features like lambdas...

Tag Selector & VariantReference Custom Inspector in Unity

Icon Leave Comment
I've been tinkering around with the custom inspectors a lot lately in Unity. Namely PropertyDrawers, which funny enough I have been calling "drawers" to date, as in the drawer of a dresser or bureau. I only this week realized it's 'draw-er', like one who draws. There's a few limitations to PropertyDrawers that I...

Filthy Rich OS

Finally got around to rolling my own Linux distribution. Is there anything particularly noteworthy about it? It's Arch Linux based. Basically, it does not deviate from the base Arch Linux except to provide an Xserver and a couple of small utilities. The most important package is OpenJDK8 and the Eclipse IDE. The general premise is to use it...

Discrete Calculus and Sums of Powers

Icon Leave Comment
Have you ever wanted to know why \sum_{i=0}^{n} i = n(n+1)/2? The obvious proof is by induction, but it doesn't give us insight as to how we got the formula. I'll show you how to derive these formulas using discrete calculus.

We can actually derive this solution for any sum of powers using discrete calculus. We need a few...

C# ASP.NET MVC Upload Image From Clipboard

Icon Leave Comment
Usually, when I set to do something I have never done before in code, there is a plethora of available information on the web about how to get it done. Pasting anything from the clipboard seems to be the exception to that very general rule. It is likely that this is due to the fact that HTML5 is relatively new and the use of the classes that...

Easy Way To Post Multiple JavaScript Values To PHP Using JQuery AJAX

Icon Leave Comment
For the sake of argument, let's assume you have to pass a plethora of Javascript values to PHP through a POST submission. Maybe it is an array of numbers or simple point objects. You want to do this quickly and don't want to be bothered with using a hidden form or having to list out a ton of fields in some long data string that...

Be about the code

I just spent an hour+ writing this in response to a specific thread. When I was done I thought it might be good as a blog entry. All too often we see rookies ask a question, provide virtually no code and ask for "help" with it, but there isn't anything to help with. Then when we suggest they either need to make some effort for us...

Java: "Why isn't my input inputting?"

Icon Leave Comment
One of the most common beginner traps in Java is the behavior of the "convenience" methods of the Scanner class. The usual scenario is this: the assignment is to write code accepting inputs of various types and process those inputs in some fashion. For example the assignment might be to prompt the user for a String, a substring, an...

Technical difficulties, still plugging away

For anyone who might be following along, I've been having a bit of a time getting the dev environment set up on my new system. The problem is more that, for some reason, UE4 just causes me to blue screen. I'm inclined to blame ATI though, I'm pretty sure it's something to do with having the 4 r290x cards xfired.
