XDC 2019, speaker Bob Keeney
We all make mistakes when it comes to projects - its part of the learning curve and its completely natural, as long as you learn from those mistakes. Bob Keeney from BKeeney Software has been developing in Xojo for over 17 years. Along the way he’s made plenty of mistakes and seen even more that hes had to fix. In this session, well go over some of the most common mistakes and how to move beyond them. Well cover coding, design, IDE, specific platform mistakes, database mistakes, and even business mistakes.
The 2019 Video is a little outdated as it’s using classic API so some of my major topics, like not checking for the Database.Error after every transaction aren’t true in API 2. Since I’m not using API 2.0 for any project, yet, I’m not up on those mistakes yet.
Always something to learn Bob. As I have aged, the “later me” can be only a few days removed from when I wrote code so there is a tight feedback loop set up to reinforce the need to write clear, commented code. Enjoyed,
There are time I use modules and submodules for string or other non integer constants as it lets me use autocomplete that only shows me the set of possibilities i want without getting a huge autocomplete with a lot of unrelated stuff…
I wish I could a constant goops in class like enums… Oh well.
