The First Thought Counts !

What is the difference between a good software engineer and a weaker software engineer?

Answer: When you give a weak software engineer a new job the first question they ask themselves is “how am I going to design this?” where as the good software engineer asks themselves “how am I going to test the code?”

Be aware that “job” could mean developing a new class to represent a simple concept or it could mean developing a complete database management system for a large corporation.

Working With Embarcadero C++ Tokyo

The latest version of Embarcadero C++ is Tokyo 10.2. I have installed this and all went smoothly. There are some cosmetic improvements to the menu structure over previous versions.

 The main push with this version has been the Delphi support for Linux server code development.

This move is a welcome one for many designing / building server client software systems.

 But targeting of Linux from within a C++ code base is not yet available (it soon will be !).

 What us C++ programmers do have is support for the high level CLANG compiler optimisation -O3 and also improvements to the CLANG compiler linker operation.
