Welcome to Dev Rants.

This blog contains the random musings of a software developer.

It is probably fair to give some background first.
I am an experience software developer with a diverse background.

The majority of the development that I have done over the last ten years has been in Delphi,
although I have also used C++, Java, Visual Basic, Powerbuilder, APL, Tcl/Tk/Expect,
Python and a fair amount of SQL. Recently I have started investigating C#

I am pro Open Source (but not rabidly so).

This Blog should allow me to record various devlopment issues that I have found along the way. Hopefully someone else (possibly myself down the line) will find these useful.
