Cad reboot

Holidays are over.

Now is time to start again that blog in earnest.

I plan to post at least once a week. To do so, I need to tighten a bit the topic. This blog is about my pet projects; but I own quite a lot of those. I intend to focus on one project for the moment.

The chosen project is: Gate, a port of Pwd to golang.

A few reasons:
  • It is written in Go, and I need to update my skill in that language, because I am interested in knowing more than one OO language and culture.
  • Eiffel, and especially Liberty Eiffel, is as good as dead. I still dream of reviving it — although I love the language, I am afraid that won't happen; in the last few years, nobody has taken time to build the needed community (me included, mea maxima culpa).
  • I need a more solid design, and I intend to rewrite Gate with that aim in mind
  • I need to write blog posts and that is a good opportunity :-)

So, if you are interested in some language learning and some (useful) software building… Stay tuned.

Merry hacking!
