From September 19th thru September 29th, I had my second sabbatical week of this year, a week free of courses, meetings, speeches, only dedicated to software development, readings and creation. I had published my commitments:
Now, it’s time to publish the outcomes. I think that writing down a list of commitments help me to make clear what I want to do, and it should be completed with another post describing the deliverables of the process. This post and the previous one are deliverables, too, of the project.
The list of commitments and the result:
- Terminate a first running version of AjSharp, my C#-like interpreter, now in development inside my AjBasic project. COMPLETE You can explore the outcome at project code repository, there are two new solutions that define the new language. I published a post with a short implementation description:
- Write the code for a textual model support in AjGenesis, instead of only XML files, as in current version. You can see some progress at project code repository. COMPLETE Finally, it was implemented. I published posts about this:
There are new ideas, model in a spreedsheet, still to be implemented:
- Publish some example of AjGenesis generating files for LINQ and Visual Studio 2008. COMPLETE These are the post:
- Pouring love in AjTalk project, to support the reading of basic class definitions from .st-like files. COMPLETE Now, the project can load code from .st file, you can see some tests at published code. There are details to complete in the language itself, as support for blocks between [ and ], primitives invocation from code, and indexed variables support. After the sabbatical week, I tested the new Load, and it looks interesting: now, the work is to complete the details and begin to implement the base library. I’m studying the implementation inside Smallatlk/X.
- Write two posts about AjGenesis. COMPLETE The mentioned posts:
- Write to post about F#. PARCIAL I wrote one post
but there is no second one. As compensation, I wrote a detailed description of last Microsoft TechNight at Buenos Aires, related to programming language, only in Spanish
No overdeliveries in this week outcome, but using the generated impulse, I was working in language interpreters, resulting in:
http://code.google.com/p/ajfunc Functional language implementation, named AjFunc. It follows the sintax of F#. I have to add type support, type inference, and thousands details more. But the core is taking form.
http://code.google.com/p/ajlogo First step in Logo programming language implementation.
http://www.codeplex.com/ajmessages AjMessages implemented using DSS/CCR. I wrote the example last year, but I updated it, and now, it’s published. The last year I published another example over WCF. Next steps: unify the two implementation, better object serialization, better configuration. Post with short description:
As usual, I had fun in this sabbatical week, and I learnt a lot of new stuff.
