There May Be Only One!
JAN 31,2020
THERE MAY BE ONLY ONE! We often need to ensure that only one of something is running. That could be a child within your program, or an instance of your program itself. There are a bunch of ways to crack this nut, and Mike Hanson will discuss and demonstrate various options.

Build Automation With Jenkins!
JAN 24,2020
This week, John Farmer joins us to talk about build automation using Jenkins!

 Jenkins – One of several alternative platforms for automation
 Java based so it can run on different O/S environments
 We’re using Windows today, because we’re building a Clarion app.
 Simple Master instance doing the work or more complex Master/Slave with Build-Agents
 A master instance of Jenkins can perform automation or can control other “Agent” instances on various O/S systems.

Introducing Update.It!
JAN 10,2020
A few months ago, John was going through the monthly ritual of checking for CapeSoft updates, which involved going to the CapeSoft site, getting the list of downloads, sorting by date, opening an app to see what versions I had installed, downloading them all, finding my passwords, etc etc. There should be a better way right, like an automated way?

Now there is! (well, almost, it's not totally finished but it's close!)

Update.It! will take care of all of this work for you, keeping up with what 3rd party products you have installed and alerting you when new versions are available. It automatically downloads the install files for you, so all you have to do is click "Install". It can store your passwords, serial numbers, and maintenance keys. And more!

We'll be demoing Update.It! during the webinar, but also we'll be going "behind the scenes" and talk about how it was written, what interface decisions were made, and how it works "under the hood".
#543
Interface This!
JAN 03,2020
Mike Hanson likes INTERFACEs, because they make it easier to build programs that are both flexible and manageable. In this session, Mike will explain how interfaces simplify class use within a mutli-app system, without littering your main Clarion LibSrc folder with classes from unrelated systems. Building blocks in action!

Creating A Custom Scheduler With NetTalk!
DEC 20,2019
On the ClarionLive Skype chat, Don posted a youtube video demonstrating a custom scheduler he wrote in NetTalk! There was much interest, and he's volunteered to show us all how he did it! You can view the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X89tAhzpQQQ

Eureka! I Finally Get Interfaces!
DEC 13,2019
[learning] [classes] [interfaces] [reflection]

Mike loves generic solutions that can be extended over time without breaking things. Interfaces are one of the tools that can be used to achieve this. Unfortunately, wrapping your head around the use and usefulness of interfaces can be a challenge. Mike is going to revisit Bruce's queue disposer (#535), using interfaces to make it more generic and easily extensible. If you don't yet understand the role of interfaces, this example may induce your Eureka! moment.

New Product - MyTable!
NOV 07,2019
[3rdparty] [capesoft] [mytable] [blobs] [security] [encryption] [handcode]

MyTable is a set of classes that allow generic access to table structures. It is designed to be used by developers writing generic code where the code has to access Tables and Fields from time to time. It offers the ability to secure data at rest, on a field by field basis. Particularly useful when using Blobs or Memos.

Queues, Nested Queues, and Extended Name Attributes
OCT 25,2019
[attributes] [queues] [reflection]

A few months ago (#528), Bruce introduced a method for adding extended attributes to field definitions using the NAME attribute.

Now, Bruce will look at a practical use for this method, using Queues and nested Queues (queues in queues). Plus he'll be demonstrating an easy way to safely dispose of nested queues!
