Someone asked me a couple of days ago, why I have been so quiet on the blog, etc. The truth is, that I have been heads down for the last few months building a new system for a client.
This system is taking all of my time (including a lot of my personal time) and finding time to update the blog has come second place. No excuses, that is just the way that it is. So mixed with OI development, photography gigs and sleep, there has been little time for anything else.
That said the project is coming along well and I continue to be amazed at what a junior application developer can achieve with OpenInsight 10. Yes, I continue to make mistakes but I continue along the learning curve and things are definitely getting easier and quicker.
A fun week playing with the Internal 10.0.7 pre-release.
Just this week, I was given access to the internal 10.0.7 pre-release. The subsequent testing had me find a small bug and yes, I did do something unexpected, and yes, I am that monkey and if you give me a nice shiny new gun, well, I ‘will’ shoot myself. Anyway, this has given me with a few minutes to take a step back and catch up with the blog and other things.
However, despite the bug (which has already been diagnosed and fixed) 10.0.7 looks to be another big step forward and it is definitely getting to the point (in my opinion, it’s there now) where existing OpenInsight , ARev and MV developers more widely should be taking a close look at using OI10 modernise their development and their systems.
