Windows 10 Gets a Package Manager For the Command Line

Parker Lewis Re:almost useless (230 comments)

Yeap, I've already done some packages, and it's pretty plan: a compressed file with a file for description/depencencies and paths to install. I got more trouble when tried to create an installer for Windows, because I have to rely on install creators.

Ask Slashdot: What Are the Strangest Features of Various Programming Languages?

Parker Lewis Ruby and string/symbols (729 comments)

I started with Ruby about 1 year ago. And until now, work with strings and the symbols is not natural yet to me. I mean, most of the languages I handled until now have only strings.

Digia Spinning Off Qt Division Into New Company

Parker Lewis Hope someone big in open source buy the company (59 comments)

I usually heard how nice is to develop using Qt. How it's easy, community friendly, last surprise, etc. But I never saw the big guys interest in the Qt owner.

Just wondering if a better future would be in the landscape if some big company with good open source compromise (in theory) like Intel buy Qt.

Open Source Pioneer Michael Tiemann On Open Source Business Success

Parker Lewis Re:Still a hurtle (41 comments)

But your managers already heard of someone that filled a bug in any MS product and get it fixed? But a real case with link to it, not the urban legend "I have a friend that found a bug on IIS and MS fixed it. Who will fix a bug on Apache?".

And, in the other side, your company can, for sure, make contracts with big Open Source guys, like Red Hat and Canonical.

PHP 5.3 released

Parker Lewis Parker Lewis writes  |  more than 5 years ago

Parker Lewis writes "PHP 5.3 is finally released, with some long waited features like namespaces (with the unpopular backslash as namespace separator), late static binding, closures, optional garbage collection for cyclic references, new extensions (like ext/phar, ext/intl and ext/fileinfo), over 140 bug fixes and much more. As you can imagine, some old pieces will be broken."

Steve, the author (and currently a Google employee), developed a little game (Sokoban), using all utilizable languages running over the Java Virtual Machine. The impressions about Groovy was not very good. The complete set of articles can be read here."
